If there ever was a “man” ice cream I think this is pretty close! I am quite a big fan of David Lebovitz and a friend told me about his book The Perfect Scoop which is packed with ice cream recipes. In there he has a Guinness-Milk Chocolate ice cream recipe which formed the base idea of this Beer and Nuts Ice Cream. I am quite surprised that with the huge interest in craft beer we do not see more…

I am always looking for a reason to go to Overture at the Hidden Valley wine estate in Stellenbosch. The beautiful setting, fantastic view, good and friendly service and above all the excellent food makes it my favourite splurge restaurant.

I wanted to keep the soup pretty rustic and did not add any cream or orange. What I did decide to do was toss the butternut in some hot curry powder and add a few cloves of garlic while the butternut was roasting and it…

These tartlets are so quick and easy to make but do need a few tricks to make them really good. They have to be eaten straight out of the oven, have to be served with vanilla ice cream and definitely need crunch.
