Things might not look so peachy right now, but Cape Town is doing us a special meteorological favour this weekend for the Taste Of Cape Town. Take a look at these numbers.
There aren’t many venues in Cape Town which cater for the modern day ‘wine and dine’ crowd. Our man on the ground, Steviemyboy, took young Sophie for a spin and found just the place..
Any variety of calendar holiday requires travelling. If you find yourself away from your home base with your progeny in toe this coming easter, you need to hit the Maslow. Actually, that goes for those for those of you hosting family in Joburg this Easter. Do you really want to spend your time cooking food, washing dishes, and removing pieces of lego from a toddler’s mouth?
So most of you have been glued to your screens every evening watching MNET’s MasterChef Australia. And more than a handful of you have probably been watching MasterChef Australia to drool at the pectoral glory of contestant number 16, Mr.Daniel Churchill.
2oceansvibe and Jack Daniels have once again collaborated to make sure your Taste Of Cape Town experience breaks through all previously-set records of gastroNOMic epicness by providing you and the date of your choice the comfort and safe environment that you’ll need to make the most of the Taste of Cape Town.
I was in Joburg last week, and while cruising around the Pineslopes shopping centre in Fourways in search of an emergency fluffy bathrobe, I happened upon vida’s new Pineslopes store. I went inside to nail my customary wet-wet-wet-meia-de-leite-to-hamba, and it hit me like a frigging fist to the face – the FRIO.
Morning! It isn’t Monday. How about that! Excellent Capetonians, Shamiel Soni and Tannan Woods have directed this Kaapstad video remix of Pharell Williams’ track, ‘Happy,’ and it is super. Enjoy it.
Along the beautiful back roads of Durbanville, home to many of the Cape’s finest wine farms, is where Fair Cape Dairies’ 2000 hectare sized farm can be found.
I was chatting to Luke Dale Roberts, owner of Cape Town’s famed Test Kitchen and Pot Luck restaurants the other day and he told me the funniest story about rap superstar and Cape Town resident, Mos Def. Def has since changed his name to Yasiin Bey, but people are taking a while to abandon the old name.
Brunch: it’s excellent. The combination of bubbly, soft poached eggs and hollandaise sauce is what is commonly referred to as “the holy trinity.” But some of you are doing it wrong, and you need to improve your lives.
It’s been a while since we featured these popular flavoured food items popping up everywhere. The last one was Ass Yoghurt, which was sold at Pick n Pay. Spar seems to have joined the latest trend and are now stocking Ass Pudding! Mmmm..
The Low Carb version of the famous dish from Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans. Surprisingly quick and easy, this chicken dish has a creamy garlic, chilli and onion sauce and is accompanied by baby spinach flavoured with garlic, onion and lemon as well as sweet carrots in butter.
I went to the Taste of Cape Town last year. It melted my face off. And by the looks of the line up, this year will repeat the performance without very much effort at all. Coffee cocoa ribs, cured Blesbok and Memories of a Sweet Shop are some of the things you can put in your mouth this year. And you know what else? The ticket prices haven’t changed for the last six years, and they won’t this year. Did you know that? Now you do.
Look, the problem with most hydrating supplements is that they taste exactly like the inside of an IV bag. Do you “go hard” on the field, or at night on the town? You probably didn’t know that you can regain all your energy and avoid fatigue by consuming low fat flavoured milk. According to two studies conducted in [...]
Just when you think Giovanni’s can’t possibly stock anything else, they hit you with this vibe. Surely they are the only deli in SA selling the famous ‘black diamonds?’ As one of the most valuable food ingredients on the planet, it’s no surprise that these rare nuggets are selling at a reassuringly expensive R25 a [...]
The latest 2014 Michelin results have come under scrutiny after being leaked a week early. Critics are lamenting over the world-renowned food guide’s ability to uphold its “undisputed jurisdiction”.

Imagine a world without burgers – it’s scary, we now. This documentary created by Burger King features people that never knew burgers even existed trying them out for the first time. Our favourite is the guy who says he prefers seal meat.
Next to Mario, Andrew Cotton from the UK might be the plumber with the biggest balls. Cotton rode an 80 ft monster of a wave off the coast of Nazare, Portugal. His ride has been submitted for this year’s Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards.
When was the last time you bought a bottle of milk? Next time you do, consider that buying dairy from Fair Cape supports Rape Crisis Awareness, the WWF Rhino Fund, the BIG Issue, and three cancer funds.
That’s correct. 3D food printers aren’t just limited to organisations like NASA. Machines like the Foodini could be on your kitchen counter very soon, that is if you are willing to shell out around R15,000.
For astronauts, eating a simple pizza is out of the question, relegated to the memory of their good times back on Earth. For obvious reasons, those poor guys up there are stuck with canned and freeze-dried prepackaged foods. But things are looking up. Last year NASA hired a mechanical engineer to build a prototype of a [...]
One of life’s cruellest ironies is finding yourself in Cape Town during January. The summer weather’s still calling you out to go and enjoy the city, but with Christmas bonuses nothing more than a distant memory, there’s that pesky issue of your ever-dwindling bank balance. So what’s a Capetonian to do?
As the full moon drifted across the night sky in Cape Town this weekend, it drew amateur hikers from all over the city to take on Lion’s Head – the tamest of all the City Bowl hikes.
Committing indecent acts with dairy products in Northeast Philadelphia is a crime. At least, that’s what we’ve learned today.
This fascinating animation by Dr Nicole Avena for TED-Ed explains how sugar causes your brain’s dopamine levels to spike, creating a sugar rush and causing you to crave more of it. She also reveals how the increasing amount of sugar in food today is increasing our desire for a sugar high, much like a drug addiction.
