There are quite a few perks to being a food blogger. You get to eat food that most people only dream of, go to launches and events and meet wonderful people. But my absolute favourite perk is being invited to experience the wonderful food and hospitality of South African hotels and restaurants. I have been […]
Saying I was excited to receive a Kitchen Aid Food Processor from TAKEALOT is a bit of an understatement. Kitchen Aid is one of the biggest kitchen brands in the world and most (if not all) cooks aspire to owning at least one of their appliances. Since their re-launch in June 2011 TAKEALOT has grown […]
I don’t know if it’s always like this, but all of a sudden it feels like there are a ton of new cookbooks coming out. Maybe because I am awaiting the release of my own cookbook (Simple & Delicious: Recipes From The Heart) in a couple of weeks time but it feels like every second […]
I was invited by the fabulous Ian Manley of Manley Communications to join him and some other JHB-based bloggers for a weekend of extreme luxury, amazing food and lots of spa pampering. I contemplated it for all of 2 seconds before replying straight away with a big YES! (Image Courtesy of Manley Communications) I had […]

I just love tzatziki. My husband always jokes that I would dunk everything and anything in tzatziki if I could…but Chocolate and tzatziki doesn’t seem like such a great combo, does it? Jokes aside, I really do eat it with almost anything and one of my all time favourite meals is lamb chops grilled to […]
I have always loved olives. The salty, almost bitter-ness is something that I’ve never been able to resist. And thankfully for me, my husband and kids share that same love, with me. While shooting these olives, I would see little fingers creeping ever-closer to the bowl trying to snatch one. Luckily, my husband, Chris, uttered […]
If you had told me a few years ago that I would madly in love with a strong-smelling, super salty little fish called an Anchovy, I would’ve laughed in your face and told you that you must be smoking some strong stuff. I absolutely hated Anchovies when I was younger and couldn’t understand how people […]
As an admitted Cheese addict, I hardly ever say no to good cheese. When I got a tub of the MD Parmesan Style cheese I was very excited to use it in one of my dishes. The very first thing I did was taste it. I have tasted a lot of bad and bland “Parmesan” […]
I use Basil Pesto (or any pesto for that matter) quite often to add some oomph to food. There’s something magical that happens when food gets cooked off for hours. You get a depth and flavour that just can’t easily be achieved in minutes, but then again, sometimes I just can’t wait hours. I need […]
When the people from Land Rover South Africa asked me if I would be interested in doing a project exploring all the ‘bests’ of Gauteng, I said yes immediately. I know we have some amazing offerings in our province but unfortunately we also have some let-downs and too often, the let-downs are what people remember. […]
