Gather Journal

i’ll be the first to admit that i don’t buy traditional food magazines, and i don’t even really browse food blogs (unless i’m hungry), but what i AM interested in is beautiful photography, art direction and design – and Gather Journal has these in spades. Michele Outland and Fiorella Valdesolo have pulled together…

Fig & Fauna

Megan & Rose Martin are the gals behind Fig & Fauna, a blog that documents life on Megan & her husband Michael’s farm in the south of Florida (Megan and Rose are sisters-in-law). they keep chickens, cows, dairy goats and rabbits and use the ingredients sourced from the homestead and surrounding…

Beetlebung Farm

Gabriela Herman took these beautiful photographs at Beetlebung Farm on Martha’s Vineyard where chef Chris Fischer hosts informal rustic dinners in the farm’s greenhouse (his family owns the place, and he’s a 12th generation “Vineyarder”). he cooks farm fresh produce like fingerling potatoes and beets dressed with red wine vinegar,…

Manger

i immediately clicked through to Mimi Thorisson’s blog Manger after Joanna posted about her garden cake. Mimi lives in  the Médoc region of France with her family and 14 (!) dogs including a german pointer called Gertrude who i would probably steal if we ever met (german short haired pointers are my…

Dark Temptress

the type of food that’s been catching my eye lately is dark, dark, dark. beautiful dark photography and even beautifully dark food. i would love nothing more than to sit in a dimly lit room with a massive table piled with plates of these foods in front of me, like some…

Bon Appétit

i’m really excited to share the first Food & Fashion Mash-Ups series i did for Bon Appétit Magazine! which is a superb publication by the way, we don’t get it in South Africa but i was lucky enough to be given copies of their two latest issues. something i really appreciated…

The Forest Feast

i think about food all the time. and i don’t mean just eating it (of course) but always trying to answer the same questions – what am i going to eat for dinner? how can i NOT spend a crapload of cash on food? how can i not waste my…

Mac & Cheese

when i asked Jessica if she’d like to contribute a food related guest post I didn’t give her any direction because I knew that anything she made would be amazingly tasty. i had a good laugh when she sent me this. i was having a discussion with my brother just…

Food & Art

ooooh you’re in for a treat! regular readers will be familiar with catherine of wolf eyebrows (if you guys don’t read her blog already, you should). i have said this before but sometimes i think cath is my blog twin, we have very similar tastes in almost everything. she’s put…

Quick & Easy

MAN things have been pretty busy for me lately, which is why things are kinda slow around here this week – i do apologise. at the end of the month i will be moving into my new place (yippee!) and going semi-freelance, which is quite scary but also really exciting.…

Food & Fashion

get ready for an entirely nonsensical post combining my love for food and fashion. outfits good enough to eat? food good enough to… um… wear? no matter! just enjoy it for what it is. rosemary & walnut crepes /  paris x3 egg & avo sandwich / glamcanyon dinner in brooklyn / style sightings annabel…

Clarke’s

i get a surprising number of emails from people around the world telling me they’re about to travel to cape town / south africa and do i have any tips, or “please can you make a cape town city guide post” – etc. well, truth is i don’t actually live…
