Pesce Azzurro – restaurant review

It bodes well when most of the patrons in the restaurant are speaking Italian. At the big table in the corner are a trio of magnificently groomed Italian men. Over there are another three Italian men, younger, with fewer pairs of designer spectacles between them. Between the pillar and the wall, three Italian women have […]

David Donde: The world’s most expensive coffees

Over-priced, expensive or good value for money? As the price goes up the question becomes more relevant. Am I paying a premium for quality? Am I buying geekery? Or am I a victim of good ol’ Snake Oil shenanigans? Coffee enthusiasts have a bucket list. Those coffees that need to get sampled during this lifetime. […]

Kismayo – restaurant review

Kismayo Somali restaurant is at the Amal Centre (also known as Little Mogadishu) on Albertina Sisulu Street in Mayfair, Johannesburg. The centre has no discernable street number and it can be confusing to find as almost everything in Mayfair is somewhere on Albertina Sisulu. It is a long, long thoroughfare. For those seeking Somali, the […]

Daisy Jones: Casual eatery disappointments

I’m not one for kvetching, but when you order a meal that makes you retch, there’s something to be said. I’m talking to you, Melissa’s in Constantia, and the topic of my address is “the double bacon disaster”. The first time, the bacon was so overcooked – each rasher a cringing twist of burnt shard […]

Dax Villanueva: Three things you need to stop believing about olive oil

1. Imported oil is better than local oil The Mediterranean, especially countries like Spain, Greece and Italy, has a long heritage of olives and olive oil. Some of their trees are thousands of years old and they have been making table olives and olive oil for just as long. With all that experience, you’d expect […]

David Donde: On sourcing the best coffee

The great thing about coffee for me, besides the pursuit of the perfect cup, is the international coffee community. As with any geeky pursuit, the experts tend to be a small community – in some industries, living in competition with one another, and in the best, like coffee, trying to learn from one another. Sometimes, […]

La Colombe at Silvermist – restaurant review

Running any restaurant is very, very hard. Restarting an iconic eating establishment in a new location (especially one that was not previously used as a hospitality venue) is even more difficult. Criticising when said restaurant is less than perfect is a much easier exercise. Almost any fool can identify faults but it takes great skill, […]

Recipe: Pinotage and goji berry chutney

A light-bodied Pinotage makes an ideal match for a languorous afternoon of gossip garnished with crusty bread, cheese and chutney. Whether you are wishing to bring out the inherent sweetness in a tart mature cheddar, the creamy consistency of a blue cheese or the gentle nuttiness of an Emmenthal, a well-chosen Pinotage is the way […]
