the art of renaissance

“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything,” said William Shakespeare. How true this is, and utterly fitting of the man who was one of the first playwrights to introduce the spirit of the Renaissance – which literally means “rebirth” – to the theatres of Elizabethan times.

In addition, Shakespeare peppered his scripts with his knowledge of Greek and Roman classics.In this issue, we too are celebrating various forms of renaissance – such as in the Cape, where Hazendal Wine Estate in Stellenbosch has undergone an exquisite and significant transformation, the proverbial butterfly emerging from its chrysalis (page 62); and where Scot Kirton –…

But, F&HE came to my rescue; from starters to mains and the beautiful vegan meringue for dessert featured in the January 2019 issue. How wonderful it is to find three different dietary lifestyles catered for in one magazine, with some fabulous presentation ideas, too!
