Who is the Foodie? It doesn’t really matter. Bacon is god. Wine cures anything. If you believe those two facts, then we’re going to get on fine. This means you have discovered the power of food to make life better. This knowledge is imperative to the art of living well.

This is NOT a restaurant review site. Though I do feel mine is a sufficiently-qualified opinion. I’ve worked in top restaurants in Cape Town and eaten in the best in New York (aka the food capital of the world), having lived there for several years. I’ve worked in the wine industry for the past 7 years. I’ve made and marketed wine. The point is I know food. I know wine. I work and live for both of them on a daily basis.

This site is simply a documentation of the eating experiences of a Cape Town foodie. Someone that loves food. The unprocessed kind you find at farmers markets, neighbourhood delis and quality restaurants. This blog celebrates that good side of life, the side that is filled with real food, delicious wines, artisanal beers and homemade grappas.  Yes, the occasional bit of ‘junk food’ is acceptable. I’m not a snob, and can appreciate a boerie roll and a pint as much as a foie grois terrine with some dessert wine. Both can generate enormous pleasure, and that’s exactly what this blog is about.

So, in the words of the great Mario Batali, aka Lord of Bacon, “Wretched excess is barely enough.”Eat up and enjoy.
