My Top Valentine’s Day Picks

Alright. I know. Valentine’s day is stupid. It’s superficial. And I know it’s a big marketing ploy. I know all these things. But I still really like Valentine’s day. I like the sentimental, I like the unnecessary fuss and I like having an excuse to do something special. Valentine’s doesn’t need to be a big…

Batavia: My little gem

I’ve been holding out on this post for a little while. It is completely selfish on my part. You see, I really love this place. Batavia is a little quirky and a little odd and a lot delicious. So I’m kind of hoping that a tiny bit of Cape Town can stay all mine. That…

Seaside Grill at The Radisson

I’m a big fan of The Radisson. I normally head through for cocktails and chilli poppers as the perfect pairing to their ‘sunset over the ocean’ view. Their location and view must be one of the best in Cape Town and is always sweetened with a cocktail or two. Recently I joined them to try…

There’s a whole new thing in town. Just as you’ve gotten used to first Thursdays and third Thursdays and all the rest we now also have Tuning the Vine!

The Kitchen at Maison

I recently spend a day exploring Franschhoek! I have become a bit of an expert on Stellenbosch but I know very little about Franschhoek. I was so excited to find out a little more about one of our other great wine destinations! We spent a crazy busy day visiting six fantastic wine farms with a…

Middelvlei: A Truly South African Experience

I have visited many many wine farms. And I have many more wine farms still to visit. But some of them stand out as really quite special. Middelvlei is not just special, Middelvlei is magic. We rolled out of the minivan after a MCC and olive pairing at J.C. Le Roux and a brewery tour…

This is going to be the perfect pit…

The Lourensford Harvest Market

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Lourensford during the #DiscoverHelderberg trip for a fantastic wine and Turkish delight pairing. When Dean from InstaEatsCapeTown invited me to join them on an Instawalk to discover the newly relaunched Lourensford Harvest Market I knew I couldn’t resist! First things first – what’s an instawalk? Instagram has this…

Overture

Overture is situated on the foothills of the Helderberg Mountain on the Hidden Valley Wine Estate in Stellenbosch.  The restaurant opened in 2007 and has been in the Eat Out Top 10 for 6 years running. That is no small feat that list is lethal and restaurants slip off it like children on a slide. I…

ALL THE FOOD: Berlin Edition

I truly feel like we ate the entire Berlin. I feel like months later they are still replenishing their food stocks from our last visit! We ate such amazing and wonderful food in Berlin that seriously delighted my inner foodie! Berlin is a foodie paradise! For the rest of the amazing things we got up…
