Easy Cooking mussels

[Nina Timm] Mussels are often referred to as the poor man's shellfish because they are relatively cheap and plentiful. Prepared properly, they can be a meal for royalty, let alone a poor man!

"Plants, coffee and everything else..."

[Ilse van den Berg] Second Avenue in Harfield Villiage, Kenilworth is surprisingly quiet and peaceful at 9 in the morning. With its lively exterior of colourful flower pots on the steps, Twigs with Beans - a quaint little coffee shop/nursery/vintage furniture shop - is quite inviting.

Spice it up on Valentines's Day!

[Nina Timm] Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and although I have made two delicious desserts, my better half will enjoy "man food", especially if it has a subtle hint of spice and heat.

Let your innner foodie out at the GFWS

[Jordan Scott] The general consensus of the Good Food and Wine Show is that it is only for those who are wine connoisseurs or can identify every herb ever used. This is most definitely not the case, the Good Food and Wine Show brings out anyone's inner foodie and you only need to drink wine to be able to enjoy the variety of cultivars and blends on offer.

Iconic foodie brands

[Nina Timm] Everybody has an icon or hero; we have just survived the Justin Bieber tsunami and, for we old rockers, Bon Jovi brought new life to our nine-to-five exsistence. Middle-aged people stood in queues remembering days when life was carefree and wild. Burger King just landed in South Africa and everyone rushed off to sink their teeth into a giant Whoopie Burger.
