The best pizza I’ve ever eaten was on Kuredo Island, Maldives. Maybe it was also the sea, sand, sunset and my new husband that heightened the taste and experience.
The best burger I’ve ever eaten was made by my big brother: a thick, hand-crafted patty with the most delectable toppings, washed down with a Lynchburg lemonade cocktail.
My favorite salad is a classic Caesar with crispy bacon. The balance of flavours is so enjoyable, washed down with a glass of chilled Savignon Blanc.
I cannot resist a fresh (and still warm) croissant from Olympia Café and a triple-shot skinny capo on a Saturday morning after a surf!

Favourite restaurant for a midweek dinner: My eternal favourite is Chef Pon’s Asian Kitchen. Super low-key, but the food is consistently yummy. Da Vinci’s on Kloof is another regular – they make killer pizzas for wheat–free folks like me.
For coffee: Jason in Bree Street. They also happen to make the best pastries in town.
For a working lunch: La Tête, not just because it’s right next to our office, but also because their cauliflower-cheese turns any challenging day into a winner. Oh, and the madeleines are amazing too!
Favourite child-friendly restaurant: Deer Park Café is our favourite spot for breakfast with kids. They have good coffee and great scrambled eggs and salmon – and great swings if you ask my daughter!

What’s your favourite neighbourhood haunt? The Gardener’s Cottage for breakfast – they do the best eggs Benedict.
What’s your favourite place for a good quality coffee? Hard Pressed Café.
Which is your favourite weekend market? Fernkloof Farmers’ Market in Hermanus.
What is your signature dish? Anything people can help themselves to – currently Italian chicken traybake, followed by rocky road chocolate bark.

My signature dish is a big bowl of seaweed with a spicy soy dressing and anything with matcha!
The most embarrassing thing I have done in a restaurant was when I couldn’t grip the snail shell and it went rolling across the floor!
My favourite spot for an ice cream is Unframed for the turmeric flavour. If that’s not available I go for the coconut and raspberry.
My current craving is sticky pork ribs!
My weekends – If I’m not judging – are very lazy ones. Either spent at the beach or watching Netflix.


Linda Scarborough, Deputy Editor

In my kitchen, you will always find garlic, lemons, and at least three kinds of cheese.
My signature dish for guests is a spicy bean dip made with ground cumin and coriander, a shake of cinnamon and squeeze of lime. It’s sensational with guac and nachos.
I cannot resist any kind of cookie or biscuit – especially the cheap-and-nasty wafer ones.

Favourite ice cream flavour: the salted chocolate from Unframed Ice Cream on Kloof Street. It’s the best I’ve had outside of Italy.
Breakfast: The matcha pancakes at Scheckter’s Raw in Sea Point. They come with a beautiful whipped coconut cream, and fresh fruit. So good!
For a coffee: House of Machines on Shortmarket Street make insanely good coffee.
The one thing you don’t eat? Bananas. As far as I’m concerned they shouldn’t be allowed.

My favourite restaurant is a toss up between La Tête and Loading Bay. La Tête for the fish sandwich, and Loading Bay for the best breakfast in Cape Town.
I always order dessert. In fact, I often decide on dessert first, and then plan the rest of my meal accordingly.
My signature dish is pavlova. So many people are intimidated by making meringue when it’s actually very easy to make! At the moment I smear it with double cream, lemon curd yoghurt, and top generously with fresh berries.
My favourite place for a good quality coffee is The House of Machines on Shortmarket Street. It’s a no-brainer.

My favourite Italian restaurant? Posticino in Cape Town for the thin-based pizzas and when visiting the family in Durban, Bel Punto or The Glenwood Restaurant for a beautiful bowl of pasta.
My favourite neighbourhood haunt? Mojo Market for some bubbles and a Hokey Poke bowl.
My favourite bottle of wine is a toss up between David Nieuwoudt’s Ghost Corner Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc or a bottle of Savage White.
I always order the wine list and a glass of bubbly to start… Has it become obvious that I’m a fan of wine?

My favourite spot to grab a drink is at Banana Jam Café in Kenilworth. Not only will you find a cheerful atmosphere and friendly staff, but a drinks menu that makes every hour a happy one.
My guilty pleasure of is the Cadbury Fruit & Nut slab. I would need a very valid reason before I could even consider sharing this delicious treat with anyone.

My favourite sweet treat carrot cake from The General Store.
In the office, I snack on chocolate-macadamia ButtaNut tree nut spread, which I’m obsessed with.
