Since I view most things with an 'edible eye' I wanted to try and translate these colours into a dish. Knowing that the scenery would far outdo any attempt of mine, I tried to keep it simple - a Beetroot Tart Tatin with Thyme Strawberries and Goat?s Cheese Cream.

Wine Tasting in the Overberg

Gansbaai showed itself from its best side with the sun beaming down. I was picked up with a quantum and together we set off to the town of Hermanus and the Hemel en Aarde Valley. It was Grootbos staff William, Lana, Bennet, Vivien and Lieben. The first stop on our little wine tour was Hermanuspietersfontein; here a former employee of Grootbos gave us a tour of the winery, which they rarely do. We got to taste five of their marvellous wines, my favourite a Rhone-style wine called “Die Martha”.

I love the time of the year between seasons!

I love the time of the year between seasons. The temperature hovers between 22 and 28 ÌŠC , the prevailing wind gusts are reduced to a gentle breeze and the afternoon light shimmers golden over the surrounding landscape. As night falls, the sky transforms into a glistening blanket of stars. A perfect night for a Milkwood Forest dinner! Preparations for the magical event take place throughout the day; the chefs have been readying themselves in the forest, preparing a gastronomic feast. Lanterns are cleverly hung from the highest branches of the trees and a roaring fire is lit just in case the Autumn chill decides to join the festivities.
