GET A TASTE OF LA DOLCE VITA AT CUCINA LABIA THIS SUMMER

Looking to live life to the fullest during Cape Town’s glorious summer season? Visit the elegant Cucina Labia, a destination restaurant situated on Muizenberg’s historic mile, a mere 30 to 40 minutes’ drive from Cape Town.

Under the management of food lovers Andrea and Oscar Foulkes of the successful Cape Town based catering company, Dish Food & Social, the eatery is housed in the historic historic Casa Labia, where original art by Irma Stern, Gerard Sekoto, Francois Boucher and others, is displayed in a manner that belies both its rarity and value. The graciousness of the building, and the way it imposes itself on the False Bay coastline, is a product of it being built in the 1920s by the wealthy daughter of a Randlord and her Italian diplomat husband, who wanted to reflect 18th century Venice.

With this as backdrop, what cuisine could possibly match Casa Labia’s sense of occasion? Read more GET A TASTE OF LA DOLCE VITA AT CUCINA LABIA THIS SUMMER

New to Stellenbosch Hills…yadda yadda…bacon!

SH Biltong & Wine pairing

Winery deploys the ultimate ‘fan magnet’ for Biltong & Wine Tasting

Stellenbosch Hills set tongues a-wagging in 2005 when it paired wines with that quintessential South African snack, biltong and droëwors. Now, it takes that lead to a whole new and irresistible flavour level with the undisputed champion of foods: bacon, beautiful bacon.

Yes. Of course, it’s unfair. We’re all rendered completely powerless in the hypnotic tractor beam of deliciousness that emanates from a slow-fried slice of crispy smoked pork meat. The same might be said of Stellenbosch Hills’ delectable selection of quality wines. Putting them together as a food and wine pairing is a match made in heaven.
