Sarah Graham has been busy. She’s got a blog, A Foodie Lives Here and a TV show, and a few years ago she released her first cookbook, Bitten. Now follow-up Smitten has hit the shelves, which is a slightly older and wiser sibling: “It’s a little more grown up and sophisticated, but without being complicated or stuck-up,” explains Sarah. The book features recipes like teacup pancakes, quick pear jam, and chorizo and lemony broad bean pesto. We asked Sarah to give us some tips on where she eats when she’s not cooking.
The Wolf Pack in Parhkurst.
So Yum in Hyde Park has great sushi and other Asian dishes.
Simply Asia is always a favourite.
Take-away coffee before work
Wolves in Illovo.
A business lunch
A romantic dinner
Eatery JHB in Parkmore is one of our favourites.
An end-of-the-month weekday dinner
Thai Su in Parkmore.
For weekly fruit and veg I love the Randburg Wholesale Market.
