Pashing on the Parsnip
The parsnip is the undiscovered vogue-like sister of the overused carrot and the tired potato. It’s crunchy, super versatile and in a rare twist it is also ridiculously healthy.
The parsnip’s super-veggie powers include the ability to lower cholesterol and the fact that it is lower in calories than the humble potato.
All of the above makes the parsnip a front runner for veggie-pash-of-the-month. Yes please!

Have a fabulous Father’s Day tomorrow.
Who’s your Daddy?
This Father’s Day we’d like to help you spoil your dad.
Tell us – in 140 characters or less – why your Dad is the Dad of Dads, the Super Dad, the Dad that outshines all other Dads and we’ll reward the best Dad with a night for two at Le Quartier Français. We will even throw in a delish breakfast, a tasty lunch at Bread & Wine Vineyard Restaurant and a bottle of Môreson’s exceptional red blend – Mata Mata.
We will make the selection on Friday the 17th of June, just in time for Father’s Day on the 18th of June. Enter and knock your Dad’s socks, or stokies, off this Father’s Day.
It’s time to get typing. On your mark, get set, go!
In 2011 one of our favorite trends has to the eatsake: an edible keepsake that guests get to take home with them after their dining adventure.
The tastiest eatsake, that we’ve experienced thus far, is Margot Janse’s after-dinner take-home Tasting Room bonbons. They are so delicious that Margot now hides them from us so that we can’t have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even as a sometimes-snack.
Seriously, they are to-die-for.
