Italian flair at Zenzero Restaurant

The golden strip is appropriately named when the sun begins to set and the tow-coloured hue hits the iridescent buildings filled with locals and tourists alike hoping to get the perfect photograph. Camps Bay is well-known for its sandy white beaches and freezing cold Atlantic current but something that is hotting up this restaurant mile [...]

No missed steak at the Fat Butcher

Give a man meat and he can eat! As the weather seems to be warming up, our Sundays are usually spent touring wine estates. After visiting a few well known estates and sampling their finest, we worked up quite an appetite. About 2 months ago, we started eating a lot more fish and seafood and [...]

Where to Eat, Drink and Sleep in Franschhoek

Holidays, Weekend getaways or mid week stay cations can often be hard to plan especially with us constantly wanting to be on the go. I recently spent a two day trip in the breathtaking Franschhoek Valley. I fall in love with this colonial town about 45 minutes out of Cape Town each time I can [...]

Hint Hunting to House of H – Feast Fox App launch

Have you ever taken part in a Hint Hunt? Have you ever been stuck with where to dine or what you were craving that evening? I often have this problem as I either feel like I could devour all cuisines in one sitting or the looming problem of not knowing what protein to begin my [...]

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 [...]

You make miso happy Kyoto Gardens

With Winter seeming to have forgotten about her cosy stop over the mother city, we have had a few blanket days cozying up on the couch. As we still wait in anticipation for rain there is one place in Cape Town that is bound to keep you warm, even if it is from the inside [...]

Country Gourmet at Faber, Avondale

When the suns out in Cape Town it seems to be a day to roam the countryside. I love being a tourist in my own city and discovering the new hidden gems. A comfortable 45 minutes out of Cape Town is the picturesque estate of Avondale. Well known for their wines and summer picnics designed [...]

Low carb High Tea at the Cellars Hohenort

I am a huge traditionalist. I love the idea of coming together around delicious food and new experiences. The classic Sunday Lunches and the family style cuts of meat that have been roasted to perfection. High Tea is not often celebrated and it should be. I’m not sure if the reason behind not partaking in [...]

A fairview across Paarl

Fairview is located about 40 minutes out of Cape Town. Set between rolling hills and winelands as far as the eye can see, it is a location set up for greatness. With a variety of activities, tastings and meals to enjoy at Fairview this is definitely an estate I was excited to visit. I must [...]

Sunday Lunch at Makaron

Sunday lunch is a tradition that I grew up with, the smell of a 4 hour slow cooked Lamb leg with duck fat roasted potatoes, a selection of vegetables and the rich gravy leaving me anxiously counting down the hours until we could sit down at the lunch table. Soft jazz playing while we chat [...]
