Weskus breakfast Saldanha Bay-style. Started the week with a trip out to the @blueoceanmussels aquafarms. Mirror-still water, the screech of seagulls and cheerful winter sunshine burning through the mist. Reckon I’d like to begin every day this way. . . . . . #eastafternoonblog #eastafternoonepicure #eastfeasts #oysters #saldanhabay #aquaculture #sustainableseafood #weskus #capewestcoast #foodphotography #f52grams #food24_sa #foodwinewomen #provinciallife #nikonsouthafrica #onthetable #takemoreadventures #travelwriter #foodwriter #meetsouthafrica #southafricaza #theroadlesstraveled #eeeeeats #eatfamous #heresmyfood #feedfeed

Tonight’s tipple arriving from @creationwines like precious metal emerging from the earth. 2018 Reserve Pinot Noir full of subtle earthiness and understated spice - courtesy of the estate’s 450 million year-old Bokkeveld shale terroir in which it is cultivated. A more in-depth overview on my inaugural exploration of the Hemel en Aarde Valley will be up soonish on my blog. But first I’m very content to spend some time with my wine, my thoughts and Steely Dan’s greatest hits. . . . . . #eastafternoonblog #eastafternoonepicure #eastfeasts #southafricanwine #creationwines #pinotnoir #hemelenaarde #overberg #oenophile #drinksfeed #redwine #mediterraneandiet #winephotography #foodphotography #nikonsouthafrica #nikonz6 #mirrorless #food24_sa #foodwinewomen #womenandwine #foodstyling #imbibegram

Three more sleeps til’ Weskus. Looking forward to working on a very exciting new project that will see me revisiting all the spots I covered on last year’s cookbook journey. I absolutely cannot wait to be up on the Coast again, seeing my friends and cooking fresh mussels over the coals. . . . . . #eastafternoonblog #weskus #capewestcoast #dametravelerfoodie #discoverctwc #visitnwc #awesupply #theoutdoorpassion #liveauthentic #theroadlesstraveled #roadtrip #seagull #doringbaai #fryerscove #welivetoexplore #meetsouthafrica #southafricaza #nikonsouthafrica #travelphotography #seekthesimplicity #backroad_visions #travelwriter

While smiling benignly at the floor seems to be my default pose (camera-shy or really amusing shoes?) I’m most pleased about starting a brand new week with a return to my kettlebell classes. A statement that, had this been a year earlier, I would have egregiously rolled my eyes at. Oh how things have changed - my mind, my outlook and my jean size. . . . . . #eastafternoonblog #mondaymood #agameofportraits #portraitphotography #weightloss #highintensitytraining #kettlebellworkout #mediterraneandiet #nikonsouthafrica #nikonz6 #mirrorless #vitaminsea #lovewinterhateeverythingelse #morningworkout #moodygrams #welivetoexplore #theoutdoorpassion #liveauthentic #meetsouthafrica

In celebration of Sunday and slow-cooking, here’s one from the archives. Chicken roasted with anchovy butter and garlic for winter feasting. Brown anchovy fillets provide an addictive hit of umami and the butter ensures the chicken stays deliciously juicy. Best served with crispy smashed spuds and steamed green beans, the leftover chicken can also be used to make a cold-busting broth packed with ginger, chilli and soy. My favourite sort of good mood food.

While this dish of crispy fried whitebait might seem out of place in cold and rainy July, winter is in fact our citrus season. Make the most of juicy @lemongold_seedless lemons with my recipe for whitebait with roasted LemonGold mayonnaise. A delicious snack to serve with drinks at your next lunch or dinner.

After experiencing what I think has been the second worst week in living history for me, this is what my brain is currently resembling. Too many thoughts vying for my attention. Thank goodness I just found half a bottle of tequila in my pantry and the fruit bowl is full of citrus. Happy Friday! . . . . . #eastafternoonblog #eastafternoonepicure #eastfeasts #sardines #whitebait #foodphotography #foodfluffer #dametravelerfoodie #seafood #oilyfish #mediterraneandiet #food24_sa #foodstyling #lifeandthyme #eatfamous #forkfeed #heresmyfood #feedfeed #onthetable #weekendmood #nikonsouthafrica #agameoftones #foodwinewomen #provinciallife

Anticipating a weekend of winter sunshine, reduced medication (thankfully almost flu-free) and perhaps a sneaky glass of Pinot Grigio at my favourite tapas spot in Cape Town. . . . . . #eastafternoonblog #eastafternoonepicure #eastfeasts #saltkalkbay #kalkbay #tapas #winebar #fridaymood #friyay #lifeandthyme #lovewinterhateeverythingelse #weekenders #capetownmag #capetownrestaurants #foodphotography #nikonsouthafrica #womenandwine #provinciallife #pinotgrigio #dametravelerfoodie
