Marcel’s is smashing it out of the park with peppermint!

The Pandemic Life of 2020 has not stopped Marcel's from being creative! Last time we visited it was for the new Peanut Butter flavour which we really enjoyed and this time the voucher arrived just in time for my mate Mike's birthday. So i headed down to Blue Route Mall in a social distancing fashion and i met Mike there to try out Marcel's new limited edition Peppermint Tart flavour. [SPOILER ALERT: If this [...]

Head on down to Marcel’s for a Unique Unicorn Flavoured Adventure and WIN!

Marcel's Frozen Yoghurt's much-loved unicorn flavour is enchanting Marcel’s stores nationwide these school holidays. i know this is true because my wife, tbV [the beautiful Val] and i went and had some today after the rugby. Topped with a little bit of fudge this unique flavour that is both beautiful to look at and mouth-watering or fruitering on the tongue was the perfect post-game snack.

Veg, please!

The idea of a meat-free diet terrified me. Because, first and foremost, bacon is a form of meat, and i love my bacon. But also it's just been one of those things that has always been around and most of my favourite dishes - shepherds pie, roast chicken and roast potatoes, steak mash and peas, spaghetti bolognaise - all contain meat. The America Effect When we lived in America for three years though, [...]

My vote goes to the table party

On the evening of the election, tbV [the beautiful Val] and i hosted our own party. #ISeeWhatIDidThere We invited around ten of our friends for food and drinks and cake and conversation and just hung out - no agenda beyond celebrating friendship and being in a trusted space with people we love. And it was a diverse group of people. And it was good. Then last night we gatecrashed [kinda] another dinner with some [...]

The Fairest Fair Cape aka My trip to the dairy farm

A few weeks ago i received a gift bag of Fair Cape Goodies [Mousse and Yoghurt and Mousse and other non Mousse things - you can see where my passion lies!] which were all really great and so i shared a blog post about some of their Recycling Vibes [which you can read over here]. So when i received an email from my contact Noni, asking me if i would be interested in visiting [...]

A Frikkin Hashtag: #NatureFoodsThatDidntMakeTheCut

Who was the first person to look at the udders of a cow and think to themselves, "Let me squeeze those and drink whatever comes out!"? And more importantly perhaps, what else had they tried before that? #RedBull [The Story So Far: Every Wednesday at 1pm South African time [6am EST] an inspired and growing number of brilliant, creative and absolutely fun people from all around the world take part in what is called a Hashtag [...]

When you cannot weight any longer.

i think this is my most embarrassing photo ever [and for me, that's saying a lot]. i call it my fat face photo and i keep it to remind me of a time when my face was about as wide as it was long. This is me in Umtata in 2002 and clearly it wasn't an epidemic of weighty proportions, because by Umtata 2003 i'm looking pretty healthy and average sized again...       [...]

Changing Cape Town one garden at a time: Meet Ujamaa

Let me introduce you to Ujamaa... Definition: The Swahili word ujamaa means 'extended family', 'brotherhood' or 'socialism'; as a political concept it asserts that a person becomes a person through the people or community. Yesterday i was given the privilege of hanging out with a small group of truly inspirational people doing small but country-transforming things. The Ujamaa Collective, as they are known, are in the middle of a seven-day walk, starting in Khayelitsha where [...]

A New Normal for 2018

i have an invitation for you... Much like i've started speaking about Christmas a little early so that we can be intentional about putting plans and traditions into effect before the fact, i want to take a look at this whole going into the New Year thing. i've never been a huge fan of the whole New Year's Resolutions' vibe, because my understanding of how they work is that you make a bunch of promises [...]
