‘Reach For Your Slippers’ this Friday

3 August 2012 Reach fro your slippers campaign

Roll out of bed, slip on your stokies and wear them to work or school this Friday 3rd August 2012 for an amazing cause - generating warm wishes for children suffering from life-threatening diseases.

The organisation defined its core purpose as “fulfilling the dreams of children of any race, colour and creed between the ages of 3 and 18 faced with a life-threatening illness.” Last year Reach for a Dream raised an incredible R175, 000 for the KwaZulu-Natal region and this year the project goes national.

SA cheese festival

SA Cheese festival 2010

Next weekend, the South African Cheese festival returns to us in all it's stinky goodness! In truth, I'm still not convinced that Cheese festival is a and adequate name. While I dare not blaspheme against the quality and variety of cheeses at the SA Cheese festival, the name shneakily hides the incredible array of other appetizers and palate-pamperers on show.  In the sanctuary of Simondium, somewhere between Paarl and Franschhoek, the SA Cheese festival returns to Bien Donné farm from the 24th until the 27th of April. The Cooking Pot is the cheese festival's cookery corner. By now a renowned space for innovative cheese use (no, really), The Cooking Pot is great place for gourmet gurus and closet chefs to
