I was lucky enough to attend this year’s Fry’s Annual Green Meeting hosted in Cape Town where they launched their latest product Kasha, an instant cereal that can be used as a shake on-the-go or as a warming porridge this winter. It’s filled with protein and superfoods, gluten-free and of course, 100% vegan. After the product launch, over a glass of white wine, Tammy and I sat down to chat about The Fry Family Food Co. and family.
They came. They cooked. They conquered. That is the motto of twins, Lebo and Tebo, who are cooking their way through the kitchens of Pretoria with their success in hosting pop-up dinners for those who enjoy quality food in the comfort of their own homes. In addition to that, they are regular contributors to food magazines, have cooked for the folks over at Top Billing and have been featured on The Gareth Cliff Show at cliffcentral.com.
Pearl Oliver had always wanted to be a doctor. Despite her interest in medicine, life had other plans. While waitressing at Catharina’s restaurant in Cape Town, Pearl’s manager handed her a glass of Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc Reserve. She took a sip – and the rest is history. Now a sommelier at Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel’s Planet Restaurant, and in her 10th year of studying the world of wine, she shares some of her knowledge.
