cereal milk milkshake with caramel corn and cornflake clusters

cereal milk milkshake with caramel corn and cornflake clusters

Ok so the title is a bit of a tongue twister but I have been wanting to make a cereal milk ice cream since I heard about years ago and tasted the famous Momofuku cereal milk ice cream on my trip to NYC this year. It was a soft serve and despite tasty and crispy corn flake bits on the side, the overall experience underwhelmed me and the flavour was too mild. I’m still planning to make the ice cream, but in the meantime I decided to make this utterly delicious milkshake. Continue Reading →

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot few cocktails for this exclusive luxury hotel following on from the menu shoot I did there in winter. Its so easy to take pretty pictures at this private venue. You literally point your camera in any direction and it picks up something beautiful. The views, the jaw droopingly beautiful art scatttered all over the place (inside and out) and the lovely building with all its interesting nooks and crannies. Continue Reading →

tigers milk – its a cocktail and its a restaurant

Tigers Milk - its a cocktail

I was introduced to this cocktail at the opening of the fabulous new Tigers Milk on Long street in Cape Town and it was love at first sip. Its got tequila, sharp lime flavours and an undertone of coriander with a hint of chilli. Coconut milk and fresh pineapple juice smooth things out making this my new favorite tequila drink.

Tigers Milk  or leche de tigre, is the Peruvian name for the marinade used to cure cerviche. Basically the delicious juice that is left behind when you eat this stunning seafood dish, and one of my absolute obsessions (heres my recipe for it). This cocktail takes aspects of these flavours and makes it more drinkable. You can adjust the quantities to suit your taste buds. Add more tequila and lime if you like it stronger and less pineapple juice if you dont want it too sweet. I played around with the ingredients a few times and came up with something I really like. Or, if you are in Cape Town, pop on over to Tigers Milk and get them to make you their version.

The mushroom burger at Tigers Milk, Long Street, Cape Town

I shot some of the menu and stunning interior at this funky new Cape town spot last week, and these are my pics. The food is unashamedly ‘dude food’ and exactly what I like to eat when I’m out for a few drinks. The burgers are delicious and if you like truffle, the truffle mushroom burger with bacon is insanely good. Served with home-made french fries which makes all the difference. The pizzas are baked in a wood fired oven and have crispy thin bases and tasty toppings such as lamb shank and pork belly. They do steak, ribs and prawns and a few other delicious things. Bar food with a bit of class. Continue Reading →

I was blown away by an amazing array of beverages available in the USA on my recent travels there. The category has literally exploded, and in line with what I saw in London two years ago. Sadly I wasn’t in either place long enough to drink my through these hundreds of amazing sounding drinks flavours.

The one thing I did drink a lot of in America on this trip was lemonade. Continue Reading →

This apple, beetroot and ginger juice one of the most tasty drinks I’ve made in a while. Not only does it look spectacular but it’s delightfully refreshing too.

I only added 2 beetroot because I didn’t want the earthy flavour to overwhelm the drink, but the colour is a vibrant deep pink making it so deliciously fabulous to look at. Continue Reading →
