Food & Wine

Wine with commitment

Wine with commitment

(or for those who don’t mind having fun … Owl have a glass or two of this, please).

When the renovations on the farm buildings at Allée Bleue began in 2016, workers discovered a nest in the rafters – home to an owl and a pair of owlets. This month a new range on easy-drinking wines was released … appropriately named Blue Owl Wine. Both have loads of generous flavour – exactly what you want from an everyday drinking wine.

The Blue Owl Chardonnay is a fresh and zesty style of wine, packed with winter melon flavours, apricot nuances and a citrus aftertaste. It’s just the wine to open when you’re sitting around chatting with friends … food wise it’s lovely with fresh pasta with green pepper, ham and a creamy herb sauce. Likewise, the Blue Owl Merlot suits even the most informal social occasions, such as an evening around the braai. Elegant and fruit-driven (think ripe cherries and blackcurrant) it’s an excellent option to serve with a pasta topped basil, roasted cherry tomatoes, slivers of parmesan and drizzled with olive oil. You’ll find the wines at your local bottlestore for around R50 a bottle.

Its time to READ competition

A wise man once quipped: Creativity is contagious. Pass it on. Albert Einstein certainly knew what he was speaking about, and when it comes to encouraging creativity and imagination in our youth, just think of the untold treasure, waiting to be discovered!

How are you enjoying your Cadbury Breakaway?

Chocolate wrapped and filled wafer. On a chilly winter night, there’s really not much more we want than this, a mug of coffee and a good book.

Buon appetito!

With nothing but a suitcase full of dreams and her faithful friend ‘the cello’, Cecilia Di Cecco left Italy to work as a musician with the KZNPO in Durban. Here she learnt to cultivate her music and at the same time began a love affair with food that eventually led to the recent launch of her first cookbook, Cucina in South Africa.
