Today I finally ventured into one of my favourite places the Royal Ontario Museum (favourite now that they’ve hired my daughter, alleviating some of my financial burden by giving her employment). My daughter is an Executive Finance Minister (the shorter title for her line of work is Cashier) at the Food Studio. Craving some quality […]

Which kind of Truffle ar...

Dec 06, 2009 Written by admin

Truffles. Yum. When you have a full untouched box, the world is yours.  A parking ticket isn’t as bad.  The parents don’t seem to be screaming as loudly.  Hell, even your homework seems exciting. Yes, the truffle is the ultimate comfort food.  It makes everything better.  It’s chocolate, French and comes in a fancy box you’ll […]

Supermarket Chicken with...

Nov 21, 2009 Written by admin

When in a rush, I admit it right here, sometimes I cheat . One of my favourite easy to do recipe is to get a store bought rotisserie chicken (we all know about them, the ones the supermarket make on site in the in-store rotisserie that truly lacks flavour). Add one cup of Chaloner Plum and […]

The beach at Camps Bay is a must see, and the cape penninsula in […]

BBQ Flavour Without the ...

Nov 15, 2009 Written by admin

Barbecue can mean two things to me, out on the deck with the family and some homemade sirloin burgers, or it can mean a developed flavor from wet and dry marinades or sauces.

Quest for Cape Town’s ...

Nov 15, 2009 Written by admin

In 1993, I wrote a research paper with the opening statement: “This paper comes on the eve of profound political change in South Africa…” Advance 15 years and there are tremendous political changes here — good, bad and indifferent. However, my quest this time is not to investigate F.W. de Klerk’s government and the Apartheid […]

For the love of Saffron

Nov 15, 2009 Written by admin

Please store in cool dry place out of light for lasting freshness. Because of its expense, and intense flavour, very little saffron is required for culinary purposes.

Recently, my dear friend and Q Gourmet executive chef Ray Bear came to town for a business trip. My eagerness to host him had ulterior motives. I envisioned daily meals prepared by Ray, and […]
