who dares, wins

How often I’ve been intrigued by the latest “it” ingredient and dashed off to the stores to find it or, as I’m increasingly in the habit of doing, getting a little too “click happy” as I pop it into my online shopping cart. Yes, you name it, everything from ancient grains to exotic spices and alluringly infused oils are placed with ceremonial aplomb in my fridge and on pantry shelves, ready for their debut at my next meal.What happens next? These smart and shiny recruits get progressively nudged back in the ranks by the latest arrivals that land fresh from artisan hands and foreign lands until, one year later, my trusty domestic musters them to fall in on the kitchen counter for a marching out parade, where expiration dates…

winning letter kudos to F&HE! While attending the Appetite Fest in Pretoria, in August, I received the July issue of Food & Home Entertaining . Once home, I planned a flick through the articles, which I expected to predominantly feature places and experiences in Cape Town (in line with all the other foodie magazines) – I admit I get a little depressed when I’m constantly confronted with the fact that Capetonians can’t swing a cat without hitting a great restaurant or wine estate.

We asked Dr Jacques Visser – veterinary surgeon at Oaklands Vet in Joburg (oaklandsvet.co.za) – for his views on the matter NO SUGAR-COATING… Certain canine breeds like Yorkshire terriers, poodles rottweilers, miniature schnauzers and dachshunds are more likely to develop diabetes than others. It’s important to know that we can control our pet’s weight, as obesity can trigger diabetes in dogs (and cats). Once diabetic, they have to be injected twice daily and tested regularly. Drinking lots of water and weight loss are early signs…
