OK, so I consider myself to be a bit of a “foodie” and also a passionate wine lover. (very, very passionate… haha )
A couple of months back a friend of mine told me about this newly launched, free online magazine called Crush – being a lover of pretty much ANYTHING free, I registered within seconds! Every month since, I’ve been getting a little email in Inbox prompting me that the latest issue is available for my enjoyment…
The magazine is the brain child of Cape Town based wine & food guru, Michael Olivier. It’s filled with some seriously tempting recipes, recommendations on hot & happening wines and wineries, restaurants, food products and such. And there’s always a couple of really awesome competitions as well – like this month you can win a R400 voucher for dinner at the Bombay Bicycle Club. Love that place! (you guys better not enter as well!!!)
This is the email teaser I just got for the latest issue:
Crush Issue 10 will delight your senses with a spread on traditional Portuguese dishes- think Prawn Rissois (Creamy prawn-filled pastries)-yummmm!
Michael takes a look at what’s new on the shelves of his favorite kitchen shops and we share a most beguiling tequila with you.
If Chicken Balls with Parmesan, Rocket and Bacon does not take your fancy, may we suggest Blood Orange Posset with Candied Orange Peel?
Biltong and Wine tasting, Soetes and Soup as well as Tasty Tapas, all in our calendar.
Finally, find out what Butter Chicken, Cape Beef Curry, Bobotie, North Indian Lamb Curry and Thai Green Curry have in common.
Doesn’t that just sound bloody amazing!?! Go and check out the latest issue for yourselves – Crush Issue 10 – you’ll be totally hooked! And also extremely hungry afterwards… haha. From the main website, you can also go and view all the previous issues, which are just as awesome.
Love love. xxx
