A Postcard from South Africa

It has been a crazy two weeks, hence the silence here. From Amsterdam to Den Haag and back to London. Then to Capetown in South Africa. Now I am in LA waiting to board the remaining leg of my flight to New Zealand where I will spend a week exploring food and drink there. So, watch this space!

Lots to catch up on so I will be writing at a frenetic pace this week. For now, I will leave you with some highlights from my South Africa trip.

Picking plums

Nelson Mandela statue outside the last prison he was held in

Boerwors on the Braai

Joseph, a wonderful farmer with an inspiring story - more on that soon

Cooking and travelling, and sharing it all with you.

    Great picture of the boerewors on the braai!!And the delicious plums. Have a lovely trip in NZ.

  2. I regularly pop in here to get some food inspiration and what joy to see some photos from my homeland of sunny SA. Thanks for brightening a gloomy Monday in London. Hope the jet lag is not too bad!

    Oh you went to Reubens! Did you pick up a copy of his cookbook? I had an excellent meal and wine tasting when I visited…

  5. Look forward to your reflections on Kiwi cuisine
    As a newcomer to these shores I think things are definitely promising
