A #whiskyjourney of discovery!

My relationship with whisky was a strange albeit a good one.  One where it was poured, swirled and sipped.  Must have been my "wine snobbery" that took the better of me, but I just couldn't get my tastebuds around the peculiar taste sensation.  To me, whisky was whisky.  Then a sudden change.  Earlier this year,...

Vondeling! Piccolo Mondo! Bravo!

Vondeling Wine is surely a story in itself.  Not only are they boasting an exceptional range of beautiful vinos, but they are conscious about sustainable practice and their sensitive approach to farming and wine making.  A little piece of the Paardeberg made it’s way to the big city last month where Vondeling was the star...

Churchills Melrose Arch. It’s like Winston Churchill, but better.

Walking around Melrose Arch is almost like walking through the streets of a small village.  The only exception to this village, is that it’s severely cosmopolitan and abuzz with people, restaurants and the social scene is electric. Making your way to the Piazza, the restaurant scene stretches even further and your senses have a bit... Continue Reading →

Silver Orange Bistro! What a surprise!  The word "bistro" mostly refers to a small eatery that serves simple food, but in this case, it's a small place that packs a huge punch.  Silver Orange Bistro found its feet in the early 2000's and is situated in the Hartebeespoortdam region just a 30 minute drive from...

Maple & Cinnamon Butternut dreams!

Veggies are a good thing, not only are they healthy and nutritious, but they should always be fun too.  I always catch myself in the kitchen busy preparing food facing this conundrum of rather healthy vs rather tasty.  Sadly, I still have a lot to learn in that department.  One thing is definitely for sure,...
