CHARLES RUSSELLPhotographerI enjoy celebrating life with good food, wine and friends. I’m inspired by all things visual – no room for anything aesthetically unappealing here! My wife and I love cooking up a feast – anything from modern interpretations of beef Wellington to fresh Asian summer salads with lots of salmon. I’m all about Sriracha at the moment – Sriracha mayo, Sriracha sticky ribs, Sriracha burgers... it’s to die for. I love relaxing with a glass of La Motte Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc.

resolution revolution

I confess to rolling my eyes whenever I hear yet another trite declaration from someone vowing to make a fresh start come January. It’s not that I don’t respect good intentions and all that, but, in this day and age of instant gratification, we want to see results and we want to see them now .

Let’s get to the part I couldn’t be more excited to tell you about: after a brainstorming session of note a couple of months ago, the F&HE team decided it’s time for a resolution revolution to ring in the New…

dear food & home

FESTIVE INSPIRATION What a great issue November 2015 was! So many incredible competitions, plus comfort for the foodie soul. It’s wonderful to know that black truffles are being farmed locally, showing that SA food products are just as good as any grown overseas – our young olive-oil industry is a prime example. So brave and patient the Andersons are – I wish them so much luck and good hound-sniffing with their beautiful and talented Shammy.Next, your ‘Kitchen files’ has been framed and is hanging in my kitchen for a quick and quirky reference. So handy – thanks a bunch! Your Diwali recipes have inspired me to cook up an Indian feast on Christmas Eve, and those vanilla burfees with blueberries will be our leave-out-for-Santa treat this year.Your ‘Junior Chef’ article…
