I really wanted to share this lovely feature in the November issue of GET IT magazine, as it is only distributed here in Cape Town. It is written by award-winning journalist Nelia Vivier, and it was such a joy to meet and work with her.
Nothing could have prepared me for all the challenges of producing and publishing my own book, including all the marketing and PR after it arrived, but this story was the one that I spent the most time on, and enjoyed being a part of the most.
Nelia’s piece is so evocative and descriptive and I spent a good few days tackling the in-depth questions she sent me. Being able to articulate my food philosophy and creative process was a wonderful opportunity for me to take a look inwards at my life.

Thank you Nelia for writing such a lovely piece.
This Saturday I will be at the Slow Market in Stellenbosh selling and signing my book between 10am – 1pm. I’ll be at the entrance to the main hall. I will be selling my book for the very special price of R160 * Christmas shopping time*
The market is hosting a Summer Strawberry Fair, so it will be well worth it to pop along.
This is what it’s all about:
‘Berry Berry Fun. The start of summer and my goodness do we celebrate all things Pink at the Summer Strawberry Fair on the 3 November at Stellenbosch Slowmarket. Seasonal freshly picked palettes of strawberries, Robertson Valley pomegranate juices and delectable reductions ideally topped on Ice Cream. Our local Boland farmers adorn us with blueberries & blackberries and our award-winning producers and traders infuse their popular meals with all things berry. Berry Cordials, Strawberry Daquiree’s, Strawberry Pesto, Berry Ice Cream, Rudi’s Strawberry Sausage, Strawberry bakes and strawberry jams. Even our crafters infuse berries into their soaps, bath salts and design. Our designer goods market known as The Treasury Market will be joining us. The perfect shopping boutique of hand-picked and local goods made by designers, crafters and artisans. They join us on every first Saturday of the month and on this special occasion.
