Corona Gratitude 🙏
#Grateful for a lovely day, starting early as I was planning my work around a Stage 2 Loadshedding when it fell away when the City of Cape Town dropped it to Stage 1, meaning I could catch some more sleep; for getting my work finished in good time this morning; for returning the Woolworths trolley, combining it with a walk to Maiden’s Cove and back, earning 300 Discovery points; for the lovely clouds today; for fetching my Mohnbrötchen from Dinkel; for a good client meeting at Utopia Cape Town; for a fun afternoon and evening in the excellent company of Gary Peterson, surprising him with a visit to Lazari in Vredehoek, enjoying delicious tapas at Fat Harry’s in Kenilworth but missing seeing its owner Stuart Bailey, and for an interesting educational evening about Wagyu Beef at Rare Grill; for ending our evening off at Fat Harry’s; for getting home safely; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
I was invited by Award-winning Rare Grill steak house owner Greg Bax to attend a Steak Master Class in a venue above his Kenilworth-based steak house on Monday evening. Not being sure of what to expect, other than excellent steaks which I had experienced after it was named the Best Steakhouse by Eat Out two years running, it turned out to be a fun, informal and educational evening, being taught how to buy the correct steak, how to age it, how to grill it, and which sauces to serve with it, paired with a selection of Quoin Rock wines.
