cook your heart out

I’ve never been afraid of hard work, because my mom taught me: When you work hard, you are noticed. And those who are noticed will always have work. “So my child, you must work hard to have work!” And this has always been my mantra. But sometimes I get tired, like everyone does. Sometimes I want to throw in the towel and stop making plans and experimenting with new things. Before I get there, though, it’s time to make food and then I rest in the kitchen. Because that’s where I become calm, my emotions change. The kitchen is actually my psychologist who sees me at least three times a day. (That’s on a quiet day, most of the time I’m in her consulting room all day!) Recently a friend and…

85% The percentage of pet “parents” who quite rightly believe they can prolong their fur friends’ lives with the right type of food. They therefore focus on healthy meals rather than treats.

Being a kid in the Karoo was the best time of my life. It may seem sad to some that I had my best times several decades ago, because what about the present and all that lies ahead? I see it differently. The freedom and big-heartedness that I experienced in the Karoo as a child is the mandala at the centre of my being. We cousins were a wild bunch, but when Ouma Betty rang the bell for Sunday lunch, we immediately lined up at her table, writes Bianca du Plessis Malan Sunday lunch was the highlight of every farm visit. No matter how hot it was, Ouma’s Aga burned all day, from breakfast onwards. Nobody was scared of carbs or of eating too much meat. The table was always laden…
