vietnam in pictures part one

I wanted to share a few of my favourite photos from my recent trip to Vietnam but only managed to whittle them down to 90 which is still way to many for one post, so I’m going to have to divide them up. I have every intention of writing about each of the 3 regions we visited and share more in-depth photos of these places, and need to talk about the food too, but that is going to have to wait for another day. Life is a little busy right now as everyone is racing to finish up for the year so the deadlines are on. I’m hoping to get these up by the middle of December or so. 

Images taken on my recent trip to Vietnam

I prefer to tell stories from a visual perspective so here are the first lot in no particular order. They will all make sense when I put them in context later on. You will see a ton of pictures of markets and people selling and making food on the side of the road. This is something that completely hits you when you visit Vietnam. All available pavement space and side streets are taken up by informal vendors making or selling food. I have never seen such incredible produce in my life. Better then you can find in any retailer in South Africa, in abundance and everywhere. 

You can see the rest of my pictures in part 2 and part 3.

eat Israel

The Methane Yehudi Market, Jerusalem

So if you follow my blog or me on social media you would have seen that last month I spent an amazing couple of weeks in Israel. I was invited along with a few other international bloggers to sample the very best that Israeli food has on offer and share a few of  my stories. It was a once in a life-time experience arranged by Vibe Israel – a non-profit organization that promotes Israel to the world as a vibrant hub of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. Of course the culinary scene is a big part of that and why we were there.

Eat, Israel

I took a huge delicious bite out of Israel and hardly know where to start, so here are a few of my highlights (roughly in the order they were experienced). Continue Reading →

ellerman house

Ellerman House, Cape Town, South Africa

I was thrilled with my recent assignment to shoot this luxury boutique hotel, so here is a sneak peak into what the food at the ultra fabulous and exclusive Ellerman House in Bantry Bay is all about. The property, a Cape Edwardian Mansion, is situated in a premium location on the slopes of Lions Head with some of the most spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. It is not open to the public, thus offering guests the ultimate in privacy and luxury.

Ellerman House, Cape Town, South Africa

Ellerman House has eleven rooms, two suites, and two private villas and attention to detail ensures that no two rooms are alike. The property boasts two lounges, a library, two dining rooms, a spa, a main pool, gym, whisky bar, and expansive outdoor space. The wine cellar is pretty impressive too.

Here are some of the images I shot at this exqusite boutique hotel: Continue Reading →
