My First Confession

My first confession: I am a total blog beginner.

I’ve only been reading food blogs for the last year. It is a dizzyingly large community, and one of the main reasons I have been putting off creating my own blog is the simple question: when there’s already so much out there, what can I hope to add? Well, I will probably never cook as well as Stephencooks, nor shall I take as glorious photographs as Nordljus, nor write as concisely and appealingly as Chocolate and Zucchini. But one thing that is missing from the lexicon of food bloggery is a site focusing on the culinary cornucopia of Cape Town. Aside from my personal fondness for my hometown, I believe that Cape Town has so much to offer in its own, unique food culture, so this blog is going to look at all things delicious and South African, with a focus on the Cape, looking at restaurants, shops and recipes. And the odd foray into the culinary struggles of a Capetonian cooking in America!

So, welcome to the Gooseberry, and happy eating.
