About

The rules of kitchen vixenage are simple… eat life off a pretty plate, follow rules only if they make sense, and always thank the cook. Besides, my cousin J says all that stuff about having to chew your food 30 times is bull shit – that’s what stomach acid is there for.

    Hey Bianca

    Dit is baie awesome, baie mooi. Ek like dit baie. Ek het eerste gewonder hoe ek dit gaan kry maar dit was nogals maklik. Jou Blog is baie mooi en professioneel. En die comments van Expresso is nice.
    Die kosse en plekke luk so asemrowend en lekker. Jy moet seker jou gate uitgeniet met al die nuwe goed wat jy elke week doen en ondervind. Regtig baie mooi.

      Dear Mr Bertus

      Kief to hear from you! YES – I WOULD LOVE TO COME AND EAT AT OVERTURE – YAAAAY – I’ve been meaning to do so for ages, it’s the only top ten restaurant I haven’t been to. I tried to make a booking last year but you were renovating… So, how about dinner this Thursday the 31st? Would like to arrive a bit earlier to take a few pics before dark, so 6.30?

      Very much looking forward to it.

    Wow, your blog rocks. Found it by Googling peppermint crisp tart (sorry, far too plep for your blog) and landed on your boerecasata for some reason. Which my husband now thinks I should make instead of the peppermint crisp tart.

    Lovely read – definitely bookmarked!

    • admin says:

      Too pleb – no ways – I have a peppermint crisp tart pic & story from my road trip to the Karoo which I’ll work in sometime. Thanks and enjoy the Boere Casata!

    Het groot geword met die boere casata. Kamp elke Krismis op Agulhas. Familie braaie gevolg deur die heerlike Casata uit die gasvrieskassie.
    Al te piekant jong dame.
    Die Vixen is pragtig.

  • Hi Bianca

    I am so glad you enjoyed the food, vibe and the decor at oDD Cafe. We really enjoyed having you there. The amazing thing is that you encapsulated the feel of our New York style street cafe perfectly. It was also a really nice interview on Expresso’s. Hopefully, when you are in Jozi, we will see you again.

    Kind Regards
    Christina

Terug by die kantoor by Sarie het Pieter Hugo van sy vriendin Bianca en haar cool blog gepraat…..en dat ons albei op dieselfde show was …so het ek begin om jou geskryf te lees….en dit is fabulous ( sal nie nice se nie want dan word David kwaad!!!!). Great om jou te ontmoet…..en ek geniet jou blog! Bella Isabella Niehaus

Baie dankie vir die blog-kompliment. Bly om te hoor jy dink dis not-just-nice but fabulous! Vandag het ek myself belowe gaan ek min eet en baie skryf, vir ‘n verandering. Hoop ek sien jou weer by Expresso? Mooi dag, B

  • O my !! It is only 8:30 in the morning and after reading through this stunning blog, my stomach is complaining loudly. You have a new fan and I will most definitely spread the news to all my food-loving friends. I hope sincerely that I will no long be on this earth, when such amazing food gets replaced by a tablet representing rump steak, prepared to perfection.

  • Liebe Calitz says:

  • taryn de klerk says:

    good day.i would like to know how do i become a food writer or critic?i absolutely adore food and would love to make it a career.thank you so much.

    • admin says:

      Hi Taryn
      Good grief…to answer would be a mouthful but I’ll try. A lot of flaky folk have launched themselves as ‘food critics’ regardless of whether they have a culinary frame of reference and by the same token, ‘food writing’ has become the refuge of many an ardent eater yet talentless writer. So, the good news is that especially on the internet, there’s no barrier to entry. Just start your own blog (as I have done) and fire away. If you want to get published (like, on paper) and you have zero experience or qualifications, a well-written blog could serve as a great online reference. Good blogs often lead to print work. Apart from writing skill, knowledge is key. While you sharpen that pencil, attend as many wine tastings, food shows and cookery courses as you can afford. And most of all, enjoy the journey!

      Best of luck
      Bianca
      PS start budgeting for a personal trainer. I attached 7 kilos in my first year of living la vida foodie
