Let's get the summer party started!

Check out this brilliant article written by a restaurateur, it's a classic! How to behave in a restaurant


I feel a little like a bottle of bubbly, like I am about to pop.

The warm, summer sun is giving me that peachy festive feeling.

Oh, and did you know that it’s Thanksgiving today?

Perfect, I shall use it as the spring-board to my end-of-year resolution – to just relax and enjoy life to the full, no stressing and no dieting.

I’m thinking that come the 1st of December, I shall force myself to turn down the pace and really get into the vibe.

We’ve got so much happening all around SA this summer and it’s all super cool stuff, we’ll be keeping you informed every single week with our awesome ‘What’s up weekend’ event articles.

Think beer festivals, markets, food and wine pairings, gourmet theatre and more. Yay, bring it all on I say.

We’ve got our very own celebration too, we’ve collaborated with Woolies and we’re holding the Ultimate Christmas Lunch with amazing food, wine and top foodies. We’d love you to join us, so enter the competition to win a seat for you and a partner! 

I know you’ll all be wanting to do some yummy festive cooking too, so tie those apron strings foodies, we’ve got it all.

Our beautiful festive hub is a page that’s filled with gorgeous and easy to make recipes that are great for traditional festive fare that’s been zooped up to fit our warmer clime. Think stuffed turkey on the Weber, trout terrine, Christmas trifle ice cream (wow) and many more holiday recipes to sink your gnashers into. 

We’ve also got hundreds of summer recipes that are healthy and simple and plenty of gorgeous sip-worthy cocktails to slip merrily into the mood. Start with some great tips on how to make the best gin and tonic.

Let’s get this summer party started.

Love and lots of ice,
