an appetite for life

The common denominators that I’ve always noticed about truly admirable and inspiring people are that they don’t seem to realise the magic they’re working, as they’re so focused on their task at hand; and they stay the course, despite the pitfalls. As one of the leading ladies of this issue – the late, great Julia Child (page 101) – said, “Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.” While this advice may seem obvious, the challenge it presents is considerable – surely no one can say they’ve never entertained the temptation to deviate from a chosen path when it gets a little too rocky; and isn’t this test of character one of life’s ultimate challenges? In the words of another wise woman of our time – journalist, playwright,…

super muffins for super women

Flora is endorsed by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of SA and is made with natural oils from canola, sunflower and linseeds. These seeds are very good sources of omega-3 and 6 – essential fats – which we need for our bodies to function optimally. However, as we cannot produce them ourselves, we need to get them from our diet. The omega-3 and 6 found in these seeds contributes to normal cholesterol levels and good heart health.

our contributors

HASMITA AMTHA Managing editor Inspired by lifestyle trends, both locally and internationally, I am a lover of beautiful design and decor, and most importantly: good food! I’m totally obsessed with novels set in India, and find myself drawn to the East, whether it’s in the form of literature, fashion, food or design. Having been in the magazine industry for over six years, I’m happiest when conceptualising and working on new projects, creating content that will inspire readers to adopt something new in their life. I love honey with my coffee and I can’t live without something sweet. IMKA WEBB Digital editor Growing up in an Afrikaans household meant that food was always celebrated. My first memories are of my mom and I baking cookies in the kitchen. Our Sunday feasts were filled with three meats,…

dear food & home

A MOTHER-IN-LAW'S LEGACY OF LOVE I was a nervous wreck when I got married – let’s just say my husband comes from a home where his mom would rival a Michelin-star chef. That’s what I was up against, and my drab cooking style could not compete with her saffron-infused creations. So, it was a food war, and armed with my gift-subscription of F&HE , a battle of note ensued – game on. My husband has been on the receiving end of enjoying the fruits of my labour, thanks to this marvellous culinary magazine. I have been able to create food that’s delicious and beautiful, and a silent nod from my mom-in-law would make me smile. When she passed away recently, I was devastated as she really was kind to me even though…
