Creative Cuisine - Ginger & Lime Food Studio - Part 1

October 16, 2018

Ginger & Lime is a special kind of place, as the website says:

“Something very special happens when people of all ages from very different backgrounds get together & share in the preparation & eating of food.  There is a deep connection that happens.  This experience feeds not only the body, but also the soul. People become present, grounded and focussed as they get stuck in to cook together as it is hard not to be, when using a sharp knife, or tasting a sauce to see exactly what it needs to make it perfect."

This venue is in the heart of a beautiful building a stone's throw from the sea. Every style of cooking is accommodated and there is a full set of courses in the culinary arts for you to choose from on their site. The team is amazing and welcoming, and you will have learned a lot by the time you are done there!

Save the date - summertime fun - Summer Feast @ Avondale - Opening Party - Part 3

October 11, 2018

We’ve had a beer day, and afternoon beach party, and now for a stunning summer feast at one of the most beautiful wineries in the Cape.

This is a beautiful three course luncheon paired with perfectly selected Avondale wines. The food and wine are the star attractions, but let that not detract from the sheer entertainment value brought by your hosts Johnathan Grieve and FABER Chef, Dale Stevens, they are delightful.

These Field to Feast extravaganzas include a guided farm tour (including vineyards and food gardens) and need to be booked well in advance due to their soaring popularity.

Allow yourself to be dazzled, wowed by amazing fare and decadent beauty, you deserve it.

All hallows eve shenanigans - Zombie Walk Cape Town - Part 2

October 03, 2018

It’s time to dust your face grey, apply liberal amounts of fake blood and hit the streets with friends, family (and even pets) for the terrifying-to-behold meandering, shuffling mayhem that is the Cape Town Zombie Walk.

The organisers help raise funds for local charities like the Lucky Lucy Foundation for abused and neglected animals, so you know that your contributions are going to a good place.

“Zombie Walk has a 100% safety record with no real blood ever spilled.” :-)

This is a great way to discover Cape Town, meet some fascinating and dedicated costume lovers and raise some money for well-deserving causes.
