I’m a food lover, but far from a ‘foodie’. The word ‘foodie’ conjures up hideous images of stuffy silver service dining, small portions and pretentious prattlings about ambience and the like. It also seems to involve a lot of French words for some reason, where English would suffice rather nicely. In my world, good food is just that, whether it’s served on the finest china plate or extracted in savage fashion from a KFC bucket. Beyond that, it’s a fantastic backdrop for great times spent with wonderful, entertaining people, all of whom are able to relate on some level to the visceral thrill of the perfect palate pleaser (except for vegetarians that is, I mean what IS that all about?!).
We’re blessed in the Western Cape to be surrounded by a plethora of fantastic eateries, all boasting their own unique flavours and specialities. The goal of this blog is to bring you an everyman’s perspective of the Cape’s vast array of cuisine – from cheap dives to five star finery – so that you can take advantage of living in this little slice of culinary heaven, without rendering yourself bankrupt, or worse, fat.
So join me on my adventure as I bring you my Tales from the Table…Bon Appetit (Last time I use French I promise!)
