The taste, smell, and texture of food can be extraordinarily evocative, bringing back memories not just of eating food itself but also of place and setting. Food is an effective trigger of deeper memories of feelings and emotions, internal states of the mind and body.”

It was a vision and now that vision is a reality.

It all started on holiday in Cape Town way back in 2002 when my heart was stolen. I fell in love with this sun drenched mountainous land and its wonderful people.

I returned a number of times over the years and every time I left my heart was broken in to pieces. In 2015 I finally found the strength to realise a dream. I wanted to live here and be a part of the people that I missed. We packed up our lives in the UK and moved lock stock and barrel, husband, 3 kids and the dog of course!

From there we set up a business for my husband and son and I found my way in this new life. It has been a hard but wonderful journey and finally I found something for myself something that I believe in... something for my soul...local food made by local people!

Whats better than sharing food with the people you love; enjoying some of the fabulous spoils that this wonderful place has to offer? Who wants to go shopping while they are on holiday and buy packets to take on their journey? Wouldn't you rather enjoy some of the amazing local food made by people who add some extra love to their preparation?

If thats the case then you are in the right place!

"I realised very early the power of food to evoke memory, to bring people together, to transport you to other places and I want to be a part of that!"
