Terroir, top Stellenbosch restaurant

Terroir: Top Stellenbosch Restaurant

Terroir is a top Stellenbosch restaurant and a darling of the South African culinary scene. I have been visiting over the years and always appreciate the fresh, seasonal and authentic dishes being served. My godmother was visiting from the UK and my mom said: “book the restaurants and we’ll pay”. This is a unicorn statement…

Spier, Stellenbosch, Winelands

Toomuchloveliness: Delaire Graff

Delaire Graff for Art and Wine

Our visit to Delaire Graff was extra special because of my new found love of South African artists. They are first and foremost a wine farm with a gorgeous hotel and award winning restaurants. BUT they can seriously deliver on the art! I chase natural light, bright colours and vast landscapes. I am obsessed with…

Lazy Lunches at Jordan

We have been slowly working our way through the Eat Out Top Ten of 2016 (and the top twenty nominees too). I have visited Jordan before on many occassion for both wine tasting and lunch at their amazing deli. I would highly recommend their deli for delicious seasonal food and stunning views. However, I have…
