Restaurant review: Cornucopia

There is no obvious association between lentils and the Dunkeld shopping centre in Johannesburg. Generally this suburban arcade offers old money, posh nosh at inflated prices. It is home to the multi-award winning DW 11-13 and croissant sellers abound. It is the sort of spot where ladies who lunch lunch. And they tend not to […]

Restaurant review: Thava and Taste of Punjab

I ate in two Johannesburg Indian restaurants last week. Neither was perfect but then life seldom is. My first eating experience was a lunch at Thava in Norwood. Thava is a modern restaurant with flattering lighting, a cosmopolitan clientele and minimalist chic décor. The culinary concept is South Indian Keralan cuisine meets small plates/ tapas. […]

Restaurant review: African Swiss Restaurant

As temperatures drop and immune systems buckle into sore throat season, food that soothes and insulates seems increasingly appealing. At such times, there is nothing nicer than scooping up soft, bubbly cheese with hunks of crisp-crusted bread. It is not just the taste and texture of a cheese fondue that appeals. There is emotional warmth […]

Restaurant review: D6 – District Six Eatery

Modern chefs and food critics generally use the term ‘fusion’ to describe a late-20th century culinary phenomenon in which French cuisine was shocked out of its classical complacency by the addition of contrasting Asian ingredients. Popular usage notwithstanding, fusion food is not a contemporary creation. Many of the great ancient gastronomic genres blend diverse tastes […]

Restaurant review: Ritrovo Ristorante

Fashion and proximity to where food critics live plays more of a role than it ought to in the awarding of prizes. There are some mediocre restaurants that turn up in the ‘best of’ lists year after year like bad pennies. And then there are some superb restaurants, like Ritrovo in Pretoria, that are consistently […]

Saleh’s Bakery – restaurant review

I should know better, and in theory I do, but somehow I always forget about Fridays in Mayfair. Last week I did my usual stupid thing and arrived in this inner city, predominantly Muslim, Johannesburg suburb at about 11.45 on a Friday morning – just as all the shops and restaurants were closing for mid-day […]

Meat eating can be extremely destructive. The Take Extinction Off Your Plate campaign has expressed concern that global meat consumption is accelerating deforestation, drought, and other environmental crises. They argue that the livestock industry has driven many wild animals into extinction and that it is also responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than cars, trains […]

Zhong Cuisine – restaurant review

Cheap sushi is a deeply dangerous global abomination. Most of the inexpensive sushi served in South Africa is a rolling insult to Japanese culinary culture. All those subtle, true and clean, complementary flavours that one ought to find are generally replaced with technically clumsy, clangingly unrefined tastes and textures. I have an Italian chef friend […]
