The Pot & Spoon Pop-up

Ever heard of a pop–up restaurant?

It’s a new growing trend that started overseas and made its way to Joburg and Capetown. And now even Durbanville has its very own pop-up restaurant scene. I found myself invited to the Pot & Spoon pop-up restaurant, held at Café Ruby on the Klein Roosboom winery just outside Durbanville.

What it basically entails is that the pop-up chef moves into an established restaurant for one evening, bringing his own flair, ideas and skills to the table, while using the facilities of the venue.

The evening brought us a stunning six course meal that left the taste buds tantalized. Particularly memorable was the deconstructed cheesecake. It was accompanied by the best of Klein Roosboom’s wines, and set in a cosy and stylish atmosphere.

If you like good food, ambiance and a good time (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), visit The Pot and Spoon on Facebook to find out about their next event.

Namaqua

Namaqua Flowers in Bloom

My most recent project brought me to Clanwilliam close to the Namaqua region. Between work, I was lucky enough to spot some of the flowers in bloom in the region. The Namaqua land and surrounds are world famous for the lavish carpets of radiant flowers that change the entire landscape into an ocean of colours. It is truly an unbelievable sight for sore eyes and a must see for any nature lovers or travellers. The season isn’t in full bloom yet, but already the air was heavy with the fragrance of these floras. Sit back and relax and browse through these photos.
