Vongole Pasta..

I love pasta, and I love the fact that you don’t always need a rich sauce to make it, so that fits right into my plant/pescaterian lifestyle. (Although I’ll still have a bit of meat now and again) This clam pasta was my solution for a quick midnight supper! Its light, flavorful and super quick…

Izakaya Matsuri Restaurant Review..

Hi guys, I’m back with another restaurant review (took me long enough huh) well this is Cape Town based Izakaya Matsuri Sushi and Japanese Tapas bar. Maybe because I’m not a Cape Town local, but I’d say it’s in an assuming part of town, a bit hidden like most gems. (I’ll have the address at…

The Luxury That Is La Motte..

There are places that are so magnificent in beauty, then even seasons of hibernation, when everything is working on their spring rebirth, they thrive and are even more beautiful to experience. We went out to the La Motte Estate on a rainy Saturday morning, but that just added to the magical backdrop of the intense…

Steakholders Salad..

I know I’ve said that the weather has given way to salads and lighter foods, but it’s still best to have salad everyday as part of your meal plan. I love salads because the ingredients in their raw form, are best for your health! Like any other salad I make, this one was a mixture…

Crumbed Chicken Burger..

When Thursday hits, I’m probably already thinking of the weekend and what I’m going to be eating come Saturday afternoon, that’s just how I’m programmed. More often than not, it’s a burger. I love burgers.. I make them with lamb, beef, pork, ostrich and and and.. and now chicken. Chicken is such an under appreciated…

Roast Lemon and Herb Chicken..

I don’t know when it happened in South Africa, but having meat, has become such a luxury! Prices have skyrocketed and when you do indulge, you best make the best of it. I’ve never been a fan of the “braai pack”. The chicken is pumped full of brine and isn’t the cleanest you find on…

Salad Delight..

It’s not always easy to make the right decisions when deciding what to have for a meal, I’m one of those people that can survive on meal preps, as I need my food as fresh as possible, and different from the previous day too! Salads are perfect for this, and what I normally do is…
