Yes, I do mean that most of my favourite things to do in Cape Town involve food. Leanie has visited Cape Town before and has been to all the touristy spots, so I made it my mission to take her on a culinary tour of this beautiful city.
On Friday night we braved the rain and headed out to Hout Bay's Bay Harbour Market. There was a massive fire inside and live music and lots of people and too many options of delicious food. I didn't feel like eating anything with meat in, so I was looking for something vegetarian. This is definitely a good market for anyone who doesn't eat meat.
On Saturday morning we slept in and then popped into the Biscuit Mill for breakfast and even though it was rainy there were people everywhere. We started the day with a lemon meringue from Queen Of Tarts (amazing) and then I had my go-to option of Luke Dale-Roberts' poached egg with hollandaise sauce on a potato rosti. Next time you are are the Biscuit Mill, please do your mouth a favour and go for this option. There will probably be a queue, but fear not- it is definitely worth the wait!

Sunday was for wine tasting and the rainy weather made for perfect conditions out in Franschoek. We stopped off at one of my favourites, Anura where we tasted a few unusual varietals like their Sangiovese and Petit Verdot. Their charcuterie menu looked incredible (and really well priced) but I had my eye on a different prize: Bread & Wine at Moreson. If you are ever looking for a farm to visit out in Franschoek, I definitely suggest Moreson. Their wines are fantastic and make sure you book a table at Bread & Wine for a really special treat.

We had the charcuterie board, and every single mouthful was nothing short of fantastic. Meats, yogurt cheese, marinated olives, balsamic rocket salad and scotch eggs. Delicious! We sipped on a bottle of Miss Molly MCC and were thoroughly satisfied by the time we left to get Leanie to the airport.
I always love showing a visitor around Cape Town. Even though I'm not from here, I feel so proud when visiting friends exclaim in delight at all that this beautiful city has to offer.

Of course, the absolute highlight of my weekend was when Nash arrived home late on Sunday evening after 20 sleeps on the Put Foot Rally. Now our new house is finally a home.
