The Ultimate Girl’s Trip to Franschhoek

The Ultimate Girl’s Trip to Franschhoek

Getting out of town for a night with a bunch of girl friends and a good few bottles of wine is one of my favourite things to do. Sharing late-night conversations and indulging in life’s sweetest treats with your best girls is just pure magic. For me, a day of wine tasting, chocolate eating, high […]

Where To Find Canola Fields In Cape Town

Where To Find Canola Fields In Cape Town

It happens every year…the first signs of spring start showing up and I immediately run around celebrating the end of winter. Packing away my warm clothes, shaving my legs and digging out my swimsuits. But the reality is that Cape Town’s winter comes in waves, retreating and coming back a couple more times before summer officially […]

As I’m sure you’re aware, I’m very interested in drinking wine, and I’m always keen to try new varietals and regions. If you’ve never heard of the Yarra Valley before, it’s a […]

Meet Christoffel Hazenwinkel

Meet Christoffel Hazenwinkel

As I’m sure you’re well aware, I *love* wine (link to food & wine landing page). I’ve spent the past few years tasting my way through some of South Africa’s famous wine producing regions and learning about varietals and flavour profiles as I go. Having said this, I’m still just as much of a sucker […]

Best Brunch In Cape Town: Private Kitchen with Chef Matt Manning

Best Brunch In Cape Town: Private Kitchen with Chef Matt Manning

If pushed, I would have to say that my favourite meal of the day is brunch. Because it combines the best parts of both breakfast and lunch, like eggs and coffee but also wine. It’s also not normally a meal associated with weekdays, so it feels like a celebration of the weekend. Unfortunately, when it […]

So from here on out I’m going to be referring to the best small plates restaurants in Cape Town. I particularly love this way of eating, because it means I get to try so many […]

100 Years of Sedgwick’s

100 Years of Sedgwick’s

If you’re South African, I’m sure you have at least one memory that involves Sedgwick’s Old Brown. For me, they all involve good times; braaiing, late nights around a fire, camping in a beautiful space. As a food obsessed human, I mostly plan my experiences around eating and drinking. So for example, my camping trips […]
