Gibson’s Burger Restaurant, V&A Waterfront, Cape Town

Donderdag, 20 Desember 2018|Restaurante|

Living in Cape Town, I’m in the fortunate position of being able to go the Waterfront for a bit of retail and restaurant R&R rather often. But in all these years (and I am not saying how many for fear of age stamping) I’ve never, ever eaten a burger at the Waterfront. All that changed recently, when I was invited […]

Dadel, spek en varkworsie sosaties

Dinsdag, 18 Desember 2018|Knagerig|Tags: , |

Ek kan nie hierdie juis ’n resep noem nie want dis net te eenvoudig. Wat ek dit wél kan noem is bitter lekker. Ons is almal bekend met ‘devils on horseback’ – pruimedante gerol in spek en gebak tot bros. Tog te lekker.

So paar dae terug sien ek spek met ’n swartpeper buitelagie by Woolies en dit gee vir my […]

Kersie-en-amandel sjokolade truffels

Maak nie saak hóé groot die Groot-Kersfees-Eet was nie, in my boek is daar aan die einde van enige feesmaal altyd plek vir koffie – al moet ek ’n knoop of twee losmaak en effe terugsit. As daar plek vir koffie is, is daar mos plek vir sjokolade by die koffie en wat is dan nou meer spesiaal as truffels? […]

As one leaves Stellenbosch, heading to Franschhoek on the R310, one encounters Helshoogte Pass. Now for my foreign readers, the literal translation of Helshoogte is hell’s heights. And hellish it is. As I know only too well from cycling up it more times than I care to remember.

All I did on these occasions was look down at the tar and […]

Vark-en-groenvy terrien

My kop spin skoon soos die jaar einde se kant toe jaag. Ek voel ek het glad nie my act together vir die feestyd wat kom nie. Die Kerskoek is nog nie eens gebak nie en nou’s dit bietjie laat – die koek moet mos lê. Maar ek […]

Fryer’s Cove Vineyards

Woensdag, 28 November 2018|Wynproe|

If ever there were an example of what can happen when imagination meets determination, Fryer’s Cove Vineyards would be it. Located about 300km from Cape Town up the West Coast, this is a vineyard that never should have been. Why? Well, because pretty much everything counted against it. For starters, it’s incredibly small – as in only four […]
