Books. Wine. Food. The perfect love affair.

‘More than just a mantra, “cook, eat, repeat” is the story of my life’ . Nigella’s new book is an utterly delicious combination of recipes, essays, and ideas. It’s so much more than just a recipe book … it’s Nigella’s love affair with food and family. There’s fancy(ish) … beetroot, rhubarb and ginger soup, and pasta with clams and bottarga; comfort … marrowbone mince, and lasagne of love; simple … a fish finger sandwich with old-school bread, a squirt of Japanese mayo and hot sauce and iceberg lettuce is her go-to meal when she’s harried, hungry and has no time to cook. And after a busy day, or to kick off a cocktail party – a mean, green, dirty martini. Cook, Eat, Repeat … a foodie joy! • Not only is pork one of the most versatile meats, it’s one of the leanest, healthiest meat proteins and – hugely important in our current economic climate – offers the best value for money. Oink! by Billy Forssman, with contributions from local food celebs, is a celebration of pork’s wide range of flavours and textures. It’s all about the smell of bacon sizzling (best wake-up call ever), about Sunday roasts with perfect crackling and weekend braais. The Perfect Pork Cookbook … scrumptious.

Welgegund Heritage Wines only bottles premium high-end wines in great years – and 2019 proved to be great indeed. So the trio of just-released, award-winning, limited-edition, numbered bottles are highly rated. There’s a Welgegund Heritage Wines Chenin Blanc 2019, a Cinsault 2019, and this bright Grenache Noir 2019 – soft, smooth and refined, which you should serve cooler than your usual red, and is lovely with a charcuterie board, salmon or a smoked mussel pot, or after dinner with chocolate fondant.
