Keep calm and Curry on – Marigold Restaurant

In the heart of Franschhoek town centre is a new HOT spot that is the reason why culture and old world flare pumps through the very veins of the Franschhoek Valley and I am pretty sure it has to do with the heat that pumps through Head Chef Vanie Padayachee's kitchen doors. The incredibly talented seasoned [...]
