Top Content From 2015

Well, 2015 is just about done and dusted. It’s ending on a high note for me. I will shortly be flying off to Australia and if all goes smoothly I will catch the fireworks over Sydney harbour for the eve of new year. I have a couple of weeks in Sydney, a week in Melbourne and then a week in Hong Kong. I thought that before I jet off I should share the highlights of Relax With Dax from 2015.

Bouchon

Bouchon Wine Bar Preview

Situated on Hout Street next door to Savoy Cabbage is a new little wine bar and bistro, Bouchon. It’s a collaboration between Dorrance Wines and the owners of La Boheme & Engruna restaurants in Sea Point. It’s been open for 2 weeks and I had a chance to pop in and try it out last night. It’s only open Monday to Friday from 4pm until late.

Tips For Travelling To London

I was recently in London for 10 days. The week was mostly business but I had the weekend to enjoy the city. I thought I would share the things I learnt and some tips that might help you next time you visit.

Great Stellenbosch Restaurants

Choosing a place to eat in Stellenbosch can be challenging, considering the overwhelming number of amazing options. Choosing a restaurant is often about choosing one that is right for the occasion. I’ve been fortunate to eat at many Stellenbosch restaurants and thought I would share with you some places and what they are good for.

Best SA Chardonnays in 2015

I like to attend these events even though I could probably just publish the results from the press release that gets sent to me. The reason I like to attend them is that we get to taste the winning wines. It’s not often you find yourself in a room with 10 of the best chardonnays in South Africa. It’s a rare opportunity to compare them and find a favourite. Which is exactly what I did.

Do what you love

Should You Really Follow Your Passion?

I suggest to you that doing what you love or finding your passion is a luxury afforded to very few and that for the rest of us there is more relevant and helpful advice to be had.
