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.
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.
Follow through and follow up. Those two very important concepts form the theme of this report on my most recent visit to Chapel Street Primary School in District 6 for the Harvest Table lunch....
The top 10 restaurants in South Africa were announced at the Eat Out Mercedez-Benz Restaurant Awards on Sunday. As usual, most of the restaurants (8) are located in the Western Cape.
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.
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.
I recently published the list of 20 restaurants which have been nominated for the 2015 Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards. The Eat Out judges will evaluate them and select the best 10. I was curious about what the actual criteria for selecting the winners. I emailed Eat Out to ask them if they could share the criteria with me and they were happy to so I thought I should share it with you!
I was invited to join the staff from MySchool & the team from See Saw Do to help with the painting of a mural at Chapel Street Primary School.
This weekend is Wine On The River in Robertson. This is a great wine festival because it’s not as crazy as the Wacky Wine Weekend and everything happens in one place so you don’t have to move around from estate to estate. I went yesterday to check it out and here are some top reasons to get out there this weekend.
The Galileo Outdoor Cinema has become a popular activity. This year they have expanded the offering to cover more nights of the week and more areas. There will be a Galileo Cinema showing Tuesday to Friday every week (with a few exceptions) and they have added a rotation of city venues to take the Friday night slot.
