greener pastures

I confess to being a carnivore whose heart would start palpitating at the thought of having to eat a dish without meat… and just like Aunt Voula in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, my response to any vegetarians coming round to our house for lunch would be: “Oh, that’s okay. I make lamb.” It’s not that I don’t love my greens… more that I always saw them as a supporting role to the main act. That was until I experienced the VegTable Private Dining Room (vegtable.co.za) in Rheenendal on the outskirts of Knysna, which we featured in our March 2014 issue. Here, Joburgborn Brett Garvie weaves and spins enchanted vegetarian dishes with the help of a grande old dame, his vintage Defy Jewel woodstove… I can still taste the dukkah-crusted roasted…

our contributors

JANE GRIFFITHS Author of Jane’s Delicious Garden I am a television producer, writer, artist and traveller. I started growing vegetables in 1995 after travelling in the USA for a year. I had fallen in love with Mexican food and the only way to get the anchos, habaneros and pasillas in my kitchen back home in Johannesburg was to grow them. It was the beginning of a passion that has never abated and has led me to write four best-selling titles that have sold more than 30 000 copies all because I wanted to cook with interesting chillies. TARYN DAS NEVES Writer A passionate foodie, I love keeping an eye out on the South African culinary stage and I’m first in line to try new spots. A lover of Japanese food and endless amounts of spaghetti…

Imagine the docks of the 17th century Cape of Good Hope: against a backdrop of masts and ropes and barrels, fresh produce was hauled on board amidst the bustle, while migrants crossed the gangplank with wide-eyed wonder at the “new world”. Among them was a young woman called Christina van Loveren who set out to carve a life for herself on this shore. So remarkable was this woman, that centuries later she is still remembered, her graceful likeness adorning every bottle of flagship wine produced by the Van Loveren Family Vineyards in the Robertson Wine Valley. In recent months, this range of pinnacle wines has placed even greater prominence on Van Loveren’s heritage and its celebration of ancestry. Elegant new packaging for Christina reflects its award-winning reputation, and the skill and experience…

dear food & home

ALL THINGS NEW & WONDERFUL I’m a newly-wed and seem to be forever wondering what to cook up (being from a family who jumps at any chance to braai). I found your magazine on our local SPAR shelves and fell in love with the spring theme cover. I’m a September baby and birthdays in my circles are non-stop in spring. With the help of your lovely publication, I’ve not only been persuaded to host my 20th birthday bash, but it will be done with glam and pizzazz. I also found great new hot spots that I would never have known about if it wasn’t for your fun-packed mag. I’ll be sure to keep on adding the F&HE to my shopping basket beyond a glimmer of doubt. Thank you for inspiring a…

what we’re loving on instagram

Born in Canada, Emily von Euw is at peace outdoors. She eats raw plants because she loves her body. Sharing her mainly uncooked, easy and enjoyable plant-based recipes with the world, she often leaves us wondering, “how on earth could something that looks so naughty be so good?” Sarah Britton moved from Toronto to Copenhagen and shares incredible knowledge from her education in Holistic Nutrition through appealing recipes on Instagram. She calls herself a “whole-food lover” and says that nothing makes her feel, think and look better than whole, organic foods! Amy Anstey is a South African-born artist, vegan and island dweller. Her Instagram account is filled with striking and colourful vegan dishes, raw foods, illustrations and glimpses of her new life in Thailand. We have to admit, her vegan, island life…
