4-course pairing dinner, The Vault at Taj Hotel, Cape Town

Vrydag, 5 Julie 2019|Restaurante, Wynproe|

All my friends know by now, if you want to see me, invite me for lunch. Because being the exceptionally glamorous person that I am, I prefer to spend my evenings in slouchy pants, on a slouchy couch, with a cat on my lap and a remote in my hand. These frightfully unsociable instincts are multiplied a hundred times over [...]

New 2019 winter menu at Anthonij Rupert wine estate

Dinsdag, 18 Junie 2019|Restaurante, Wynproe|

Folks often ask me to recommend Cape wine estates to visit. Places that offer good wine in a lovely tasting environment, PLUS good food, PLUS preferably something else on top of all that. We are of course spoilt for choice, but Franschhoek’s Anthonij Rupert Wines is one that I often suggest because, after numerous visits, I know that a good [...]

Kunjani boutique winery, Bottelary Hills, Stellenbosch

There are hundreds of wineries in our beautiful Cape. I figure if I hit one a month for the rest of my life (a girl does have to work you know), I’ll be about 654 years old when I am finally done. Of course my task would be made all the harder by the fact that new wine gems are constantly [...]

Groote Post Country Market, Darling

Woensdag, 24 April 2019|Markte, Wynproe|

We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to markets in and around Cape Town. The ones that are practically on my doorstep are regular haunts. But then there are the special country markets one has to work just a little bit harder for – by driving 50 minutes instead of 15. The Groote Post Country Market is one of these [...]

Glenelly wine estate, Stellenbosch

Woensdag, 10 April 2019|Wynproe|

On the edge of Stellenbosch there lies a little piece of France. Well, actually more like a little piece of heaven in my view. I am of course talking of Glenelly Wine Estate. I often get wonderful opportunities to taste wines and foods that are exceptional. My recent invite to Glenelly to taste their newly-released 2013 Estate Reserve and flagship [...]
