PINOTAGE STAINED | I haven’t posted in a little while because, honestly, I find Instagram enormously stressful. I often think I’m the only one. Am I? Regardless, tonight I’m indulging in the ultimate foodie night off - my stew is on the stove (and it already smells delicious 🤤) and I’m kicking off my (house) shoes with a glass of the new, delicious pinotage-stained @sixdogsdistillery gin 🍷 It gives you a hint of that red-wine flavour that I love so much (Pinotage, a South African local, is… Wine Flavors, Find Instagram, Night Off, In A Little While, Distillery, Gin, Stew, Red Wine, Harvest

LAZY SUNDAYS | Thinking back to last weekend’s luxurious lunch, courtesy of @gate_at_quoin_rock. This Oryx Wellington was one of three courses delivered in their at-home dining packs. All ingredients come separately, and you have to heat, bake, and cook according to the instructions 🍴 And then you get to assemble everything together into a fine dining dish 🎨 How would you rate my creation? Is there hope for me as a master plater? This was definitely tons of fun!!!! Lazy Sunday, Fine Dining, Gate, Lunch, Cook, Dishes, Baking, Breakfast, Plate

PESTO PRINCESS HEAVEN | A few weeks ago, I had the most insane craving for basil pesto. I was at @checkers_sa at the time, eyeing the last three jars of pesto left on the shelves, when a doomsdayer lady snagged up all three jars right in front of me. All. Three. Jars. I was devastated. But that just meant that I was UBEREXCITED when a @pesto_princess delivery landed up on my doorstep to celebrate their new awesome freezer tubs.

EXPANSIONS & COLLABORATIONS: PART 4 | Let’s continue with Part 4 of the history of I Love Foodies. In the previous posts, I’ve shared how it all started, the people I’ve met, and some of the amazing experiences I’ve had.
