Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Our first trip out to the winelands for 2017 was Hartenberg Wine Estate and they have set a fantastic tone for the year of adventuring to come! Hartenberg is known for their picnics, their shiraz and their beautiful gardens. I have been to a picnic at Hartenberg before and really enjoyed the experience. This time…

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

I can never resist a good picnic – especially when you’re picnic’ing on a wine farm with a glass of chilled rosé in one hand and a hunk of french stick with a slab of brie in the other. Grande Provence did an amazing job of providing all that and more. We arrived at Grande…

Oranjezicht City Farm Market at The Waterfront

I was always a big fan of the Oranjezicht City Farm Market when it was in its original location. And I used to try visit on a monthly basis. However, when it moved to Helen Zille’s home and then again to the V&A Waterfront I fell out of the habit of going. However, on a weekend…

Viljoensdrift and their boat cruise

I’m a sucker for a boat cruise, a charcuterie platter and some delicious wines. Viljoensdrift did a fantastic job of delivering on all of those! Viljoensdrift is a hugely popular wine estate we visited on our adventure in the Robertson Valley. The idea behind the Viljoensdrift boat cruise is that you stock up on picnic…

Crabby Crabs and other Sea Food at The Crab Shack

I have visted The Deckhouse Crab Shack and BBQ twice now. The first time was just when they opened and it was really busy with lots of people waiting for tables. The second time was still busy but you could probably get a table if you walked in. However I would probably still recommend booking.…

Hog House: The House of Smoked Meats

This post is based on two very fantastic experiences at Hoghouse in Ndebeni (next to Pinelands). The first one was my birthday party where they happily hosted about 25 of us upstairs. And the second one was a more intimate dinner of four with beer tasting and shared plates. I actually live in Pinelands and…

Learning to bake Loaves on Long!

Not that long ago I sprang out of bed pretty damn early to head down to Loaves on Long to spend my day with them learning how to bake some of their fantastic breads! I am not one for early starts but I know that Loaves on Long makes outstanding bread so was excited to…

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…

Loaves on Long

We were invited to the launch of the wonderful Loaves on Long found at the very bottom of Long Street a couple of weekends ago. We braved the heavy rains and were rewarded with giant smiles, fresh breads and gourmet food. For the record, I will brave the rains any day for fresh bread let…

Mulderbosch

I actually really really like Mulderbosch. I like their gorgeous view, I like their wine, I like their pizzas and cheese boards and I like that you can play boules after enjoying all of the above. My problem with Mulderbosch is the really bad service. I’m a forgiving person – but this blog post is…
