Recipe suggestion: Sizzling Sedgwick’s burgers

On Monday I received a little press drop from the awesome folks Sedgwick’s Original Old Brown which included a recipe for Sizzling Sedgwick’s burgers.

Now because I’m a horrible cook, I figured… why not share this recipe with you guys and then hopefully somebody will make them and send me an invite… #genius 😉

The recipe […]

Bao goodness over at Lucky Bao in Hout Bay

Chef Cheyne Morrisby, he of the very successful Cheyne’s in Hout Bay, has opened up an 8 seater street food bar right next door to Cheyne’s called Lucky Bao.

But what is a “bao”?  Well it’s a traditional Chinese steamed, filled bun, and when done right they are absolutely delicious.

Over and above bao, Lucky Bao […]

Do go and check out “The Yellow Wallpaper” currently showing at The Kalk Bay Theatre

On Wednesday evening I attended the media night for a new show at the Kalk Bay Theatre called “The Yellow Wallpaper”

It’s classed as a “Gothic horror / drama” and features South African actress, Henri Landon.

Now one-person plays / solo shows always make me a bit nervous because if the acting is bad, it’s bad […]

A “meaty” look at Carne Constantia

If you love a good steak, I’m sure you’ve heard of Carne. It is well-known as the ultimate meat destination and has had a bit of a cult status ever since their first branch opened in Keerom St.

Now weirdly, I’ve never been to the one in Keerom St, but I have checked out their […]

The winter special at Kyoto Garden Sushi

I love winter because of two reasons:  1) The amount of red wine you can drink without judgement; and 2) winter specials!

I recently popped into Kyoto Garden Sushi to check out their winter special which gives you 3 courses & a glass of wine for R170 pp (running until the end of winter).

Some of […]

Come Wine With Us at Plaisir De Merle

Last week I joined the cool crew from Come Wine With Us once again for one of their fun food & wine evenings.

This time we headed out to the Paarl / Franschhoek winelands to visit the beautiful Plaisir de Merle estate.

Now before this visit, I knew absolutely nothing about this estate… I hadn’t even […]

    My stay at the Radisson Blu Cape Town (plus info about their winter specials)

My stay at the Radisson Blu Cape Town (plus info about their winter specials)

Two weekends ago, I had the pleasure of staying over at the beautiful Radisson Blu Hotel in the Waterfront.

What makes this hotel a standout (well for me at least) is definitely its location and the uninterrupted ocean views. I mean waking up to the sound of waves crashing outside is just the most incredible experience, one […]

Get your tickets for Fashion Flavour & Art in support of CANSA

For the past two years I’ve been involved with an amazing event called Fashion Flavour & Art (presented by Ambienz Bespoke Concierge) where all money raised goes directly to the Cancer Association of South Africa (aka CANSA).

This year my schedule’s been a bit manic, so I haven’t been able to help as much, but there’s another […]

A look at the all new Benguela on Main in Somerset West

Last week I attended the launch of a sexy new dining space in Somerset West called Benguela on Main.

The restaurant is actually the 3rd offering from the Benguela Cove group which already has a gorgeous lagoon wine estate over in Hermanus and a 5 star Lakeside Lodge & Spa in Sedgefield.

It really is a gorgeous double […]
