For the past ten days or so I’ve more or less given news a break.
This is because the news is generally not a happy subject, and I was finding that while I never quite repeated myself, it was all on a theme of general incompetence and malfeasance.
In other words, it was starting to feel pretty samey.
The thing is, I have other interests too, and I figured it might be fun trying out writing about them.
I personally don’t drink or smoke, my big vice is that I eat, and I like to eat well. My view of an ideal South Africa is one in which everyone can enjoy a Friday by the braai, so food symbolises a lot for me.
Over time I plan to set up this section as recipes, and maybe a few observations on just how to cope with mythical ingredients like pomegranate mollasses.
