Welcome to my World!
This blog grew out of a desire to share with others my enthusiasm for getting to know my neighbourhood and my city - and hopefully more parts of South Africa and beyond!
The Cape Peninsula is an extraordinarily beautiful place: we have an iconic world-famous mountain right in the heart of Cape Town, wonderful and easily accessible hiking trails all over the mountain, and a fascinating history, culture and society just waiting to be explored.

During our retreat at Bodhi Khaya (which I wrote about in my previous post), two items in particular stood out for us: Nina’s buttermilk rusks and her freshly baked bread. The large bowl of rusks in the tea-room was magically … Continue reading
This is a recipe for a really simple, straightforward, no-muss no-fuss, chocolate cake with some chunks of dark chocolate tossed into the mix. The amounts used aren’t prescriptive, as I used Granny’s old method of “Backen nach Schnauze”. This basically … Continue reading
