Who says Valentine’s Day cant be celebrated with the girls? Whether you’re single and looking to mingle, or in a happy and committed relationship, it’s always necessary to celebrate friendship – and what better way to celebrate than sipping on cocktails and indulging in tasty treats with your best friends?

With the many public holidays and commemorative days decorating our calendar, it’s hard to remember which ones are truly worth the celebration.

Good coffee, beer and whiskey. We are pretty sure we don’t have to say much more, but this amazing deconstructed stout float is just what you need when you feel like a rich sip on a summer’s evening.
It’s here! The first (of hopefully many) wine and food truck events to take place in the beautiful coastal town of Plettenberg Bay. Pile the family into a van and gear up for a fun day filled with festivities to celebrate the new season.
This year’s annual Barrels & Beards Harvest Festival will take place in Bot River, one of the Cape’s most exciting winelands destinations! So get your glasses ready to celebrate the harvest and its glorious journey from the vineyard to our taste buds.
Franschhoek, the unspoken yet glorious food and wine capital of South Africa, you’ve done it again.

Coffee, whipped cream and a smooth Irish whiskey. Could there be better combination? Let us show you how to make it the traditional way so you can serve it up to your guests after dinner.
Sweet berries, spicy rum, floral syrup and a bit of fizz: What more could you wish for from a refreshing summer cocktail?
What we really love about this recipe is that it can easily be adapted to cook in your potjie on the beach, at the braai – wherever your fancy takes you. And a South African summer just isn’t the same without at least one seafood get-together.
