6 days in Capetown

If you have time for Wine Day outing, consider Paarl, then visit www.backsberg.co.za,
www.fairview.co.za [ for some fine cheeses] , www.laborie.co.za [ where lunch is tasty Cape fare ] , then visit KWV's huge Cellar to end off with some fine sherries and ports.

Nearer the city is the Durbanville Route the smaller wineries have some fine tasters.

Snoek and Chips from Lusitania Fisheries in Hout st, off Loop.

Lekker-eet en suip !

Simple Sweetcorn Cakes with Avocado Salsa

Good recipe.
I substitue cilantro with Gralic chives from garden, and
whenever available 1/2 C julienned smoked ham from hock,
creates a subtle hint of flavours

Beef Long-cut Short Ribs (split from SF board)

It's the beef cuts with more sinews and fat, i.e.cheaper cuts, that make the most delicious flavours; of course the slow cooking helps.
Being asian -[Cantonese} , now you know why my butcher's bill is low ;-)

Anybody Almost Always Overdo & Drive Self Insane Cooking For Dinner Party?

of course we all get to passionate about what we're to cook;
the pictures in our minds;
then - the down side;
time's running out
and the final reesult is tasty enough
but the presentation falls short of expectation

that's the trouble with Cantonese and wokking
