Seasonal Food and Flora


Here are some of our favourite seasonal recipes.

Stacked Waldorf Salad

Apple season is upon us, and while I love all the braised, rich dishes that come with fall, a tangy, crunchy and fresh appetizer is always welcome.    This salad is from an old issue of Victoria Magazine (October 2014). I was intrigued by by the modern... read more

No-Bake Chocolate Mousse Pie

When it’s 90 degrees in the shade and the mere thought of turning on the oven makes you shudder, it’s time to break out the no-bake dessert recipes. After all, chocolate is a food group to be enjoyed in all weathers! Making the chocolate shards was a... read more

Raspberry Lime Rickey

We’ve had lots of family, big and small, here in the Cape over the last week. We were blessed with marvellous weather and spent many happy hours watching excited children dash in and out of the water, discover hermit crabs, dig holes for the tide to fill... read more

Entertablement Abroad: Valentina’s Lost Orangery

We are finishing up our time in England and head home tomorrow. In my spare moments throughout the trip, I’ve been busily sorting and processing photos in an attempt to wrestle more than 2,000 of them into a workable number for future blogs. The good news is... read more

Entertablement Abroad: Worcester Cathedral

Worcester Cathedral, more formally known as The Cathedral Church of Christ and the Blessed Mary the Virgin of Worcester, has a very warm and engaging feel to it, possibly because it’s a hodgepodge of every type of English architecture from Norman to... read more
