I share why I refuse to shut out the realities that we don't want to acknowledge such as a world that can not read and one that goes to sleep starving. Have a look at some of the pics of fridges from our foodista friends, submitted for WeFeedback's "how many kids can we feed" project. Add your voice to make a difference.

Assisting Hunger Relief on the Ground - #MAKEITHAPPEN Children Obs Junior School - Edible garden As a food and travel writer, I've had the opportunity to eat some of the world's most delicious food in markets and Michelin-starred restaurants too.

Here's a video slide show I made the other day about some of the (inexpensive) meals I've eaten over the last two months travelling around Europe. The aim: To expose what meals are really worth in terms of the children they can feed if you share those meals.
I have been in Lisbon for four days now and loving every moment of it. The Red Spatula and I have been sharing our meals too. To join me on this journey of sharing, simply click on this link here and join my WeFeedback Network.

Adeus Cape Town and dear, dear friends. Tomorrow morning, after around 24 hours of travelling, via le chic ooh la la city Paris, we will (hopefully) arrive in Lisbon, our new base for the next few months. I fell in love with Lisboa a few years ago and we vowed to return. In the morning, grumpy and in need of a shower and a good breakfast, we look forward to opening up that phrase book and calling out a confident "Bom dia!"
It's been 15 months since the birth of this blog, and now that I've removed myself from our base in Cape Town to spend a few days with our family in Kwa-Zulu Natal, I've been able to reflect on the food-loving year past - overall, a spectacular year. Winning Best Food and Wine Blog at the recent South African Blog Awards, is a recent highlight and one that rounds off a year of intense engagement with food in my kitchen, outside it, and a new partnership with the written word. A RECAP of a delicious year,
Sincere thanks - SA Blog Awards 2011 and a light but indulgent and ever so slightly boozy fresh and brandy soaked cherry Eton Mess - perfect, chewy vanilla meringues, folds of fluffy, cool kirsch infused fresh cream. Easy to prepare and festively flavoured - Cherry Bomb Eton Mess.
Some of my food writer friends from around the world, got together with me and hosted meals to raise awareness about hunger and educate readers and friends about what we can do. All proceeds raised went to the World Food Programme's Wefeedback programme that feeds children in schools in the world's most poverty sticken areas. Together we raised enough to feed 5452 children! Please join us and feel free to ask me how you can participate in hosting your own Wefeedback meal.
