[spasie] – restaurant review

I’ve never thought much of long-table restaurants. Nor am I a fan of drinking wine out of tumblers. Innovative, hipster, trendy… whatever you want to call either fad, I prefer the privacy of a table for two, the absence of small talk and the elegance of long-stemmed glassware. Then I heard of [spasie]. I was […]

The Olive Shed Bistro – restaurant review

Mkholo is an organic olive farm and oil press on the outer edge of Hartbeespoort (about 40 minutes from Johannesburg). Rows and rows of silver-green Mission and Frantoio trees shelter against the majestic Magaliesberg mountains. There is a popular perception that South African olive growing is an entirely Cape concern but summer rainfall and semi-dolomite […]

Recipe: Lamb Chops with Nectarines in Spiced Rooibos Syrup

South Africans love a bit of sweet with their meat. Think chutney with bobotie, fruity sambals with curry or breyani, braaied snoek basted with apricot jam, and stewed fruit to glam up a roast of note. During a recent trip to the platteland of Namaqualand we supped at a host of simple wayside restaurants, and […]

Burrata – restaurant review

On the occasion of my daughter’s tenth birthday I suggested we go out for “the best pizza you’ve ever tasted”. Burrata at the Old Biscuit Mill is determinedly unpretentious. There’s nothing here to intimidate an excited child on her birthday. Despite its status as Best Italian Restaurant (Eat Out 2013) – and owner Neil Grant’s […]

Recipe: Chocolate Nut Cake

Funny thing, cravings. Pigging out doesn’t make them go away. Ask any chocaholic who simply can’t stop after a couple of blocks – that half-eaten slab keeps urging them back for more. Skinny people who prefer to stay with the savoury wouldn’t dream of telling you that chocolate stimulates the brain to release sensual pleasure […]
