Brilliant books to keep you busy this month

Painful. Honest. Utterly heartbreaking.

You’ll read every page of Get Me to

21– all 436 of them – with your heart

in your mouth. It’s Gabi Lowe’s

agonising, courageous story about

trying to save her daughter’s life.

Jenna – who became the face of

organ donors in South Africa with her

#GetMeTo21 campaign – was young,

bright, articulate ... and had a rare,

degenerative lung disease. Pulmonary

arterial hypertension finally took her life

in June 2015 ... four months before her

21st birthday. An extraordinary tribute

to an extraordinary young girl, written

by a brave mother who hopes the

book will help others facing loss, pain,

challenges and adversity. MFBooks/

Jacana, R265

Jessica Pan was an unhappy introvert.

She wasn’t, she’s quick to point out,

unhappy because she was an introvert.

But she needed to do something about

the depression she was sinking into.

When she found herself in a sauna

– weeping, clutching a copy of Men’s

Health, ‘dressed as an assassin, reading a

guide to 8-minute abs’ and screaming

profanities at a spa employee, all to

win a free gym contract, she knew

something had to change. What would

it be like if, for one year, she lived as an

extrovert? Knowingly, willingly putting

herself in perilous social situations ....

those she’d usually avoid at all costs.

Sorry I’m Late - I Didn’t Want to Come

is Jess’s story of this painful, hilarious

year. Penguin, R320

Also well worth reading ...

Having two autistic children is every parent’s nightmare. Saving My Sons is Ilana

Gerschlowitz’s story, told with Marion Scher, of her determination to find a way

to help her sons. Her tenacity bore fruit in the form of answers from international

experts and she has gone on to greatly improve the lives of her own two boys

as well as to help countless children facing learning challenges. Essentially, she

discovered that autism is a treatable illness and that early intervention is vital.

BookStorm, R320

Steph is a federal agent ... one who

knows her job. She knows how to

interview people, and how to tell when

they’re lying. So when she finds a gun

in Zachary, her teenage son’s room, and

finds out he’s been in contact with a

terrorist group via email, she questions

him, and is convinced he’s telling the

truth that he has no idea about what’s

going on. But who, then, is setting up

her son? And why? Or is she just being

a typical mum and not seeing the truth

about her son? Keep You Close will

keep you guessing ... a chilling read by

Karen Cleveland. Penguin, R290

Another thriller for October ...

Megan Miranda’s The Last House

Guest keeps you on the edge of your

seat from the very first page. Alternating

between two summers of 2017 - when

a young woman is found dead on the

beach while her friends are celebrating

at an end-of-summer house party;

– and 2019, when her best friend is

still not convinced the death was an

accident, this is a chilling thriller – with a

wicked twist! Corvus, R313

good at fibbing, you won’t be able to tell the

difference, R89 for a pack of four.

Even as a little girl, Bongi Bengu knew that one day she would work as an artist.

Little did she know, however, that her work would be displayed throughout the

country and that she would be able to add more than just a few awards to her name.

Born in Eshowe, Val de

Grace resident Bongi

Bengu left South Africa

when her family went

into political exile.

She attended school

in Switzerland and Swaziland,

obtained a BA in Fine Arts, Cum

Laude from Mount Vernon College

in Washington D.C. before returning

to South Africa and graduating with

a Master of Fine Arts degree from

Michaelis School of Fine Art, the Fine

Arts department of the University

of Cape Town. It’s a real mouthful,

we know. But Bongi Bengu is as

talented as she is beautiful and we

just had to find out more about this

amazing local artist.

She’s called the capital city home

for the past five years and even as a

child, art has always been a part of

her life. “As a child I was always asked

to illustrate for my father’s work

presentations and my sisters’ school

biology and chemistry diagrams so

I realised back then that art was my

calling,” Bongi explains.

For her, art is a very powerful

platform for creating dialogue

amongst people. “It can also be a

potent healing tool,” she adds.

Her very first solo exhibition was

at the AVA gallery in Cape Town

and was a presentation of the work

she completed as part of her MFA

degree at the Michaelis School of

Fine Art. The theme was examining

the role of African women and

power. Since then she’s exhibited

her both locally and internationally.

Bongi says she gets inspiration

for her work from everyday life

and experiences.

She primarily uses mixed media

in her work and explains that

she loves to combine different

mediums such as charcoal, pastel,

acrylics, oils and found materials

from nature. She’s even worked

with soil and says her style

evolves constantly.

She has lived in various countries

and can speak multiple languages,

and Bongi says the ‘international

component’ has definitely helped

in her work. “Because I have lived

in so many different countries, I

always feel at home wherever I

am and I always try to express a

universal message,” she says.

Her favourite local artist is Louis

Maqhubela and internationally she

follows the work of Kara Walker.

Her dream job? “Being an artist is

my dream job! I waited for years

to do this work. But now I would

also love to extend the experience

to others. I would love to be more

involved with teaching the youth

and grooming our future leaders,”

Bongi says.

And of course we had to ask. What

is the biggest stereotype people

usually have about artists? “I think

the worst stereotype about artists

is that they are ‘weird’. My question

usually is who defines what is

normal and what is weird?”

Bongi says.

Right now, Bongi is working on a

series of etching and litho prints.

Litho printing or lithography is a

method of printing using stones

or metal plates. “The series of

prints are inspired by the powerful

symbol of infinity that can help us

in various ways, but most especially

to create balance and harmony

within our daily lives.

Any advice for aspiring artists

dreaming of making it big in

the industry?

“Make sure you have a mentor that

can always help and guide,” she says.

“Especially since one of the most

difficult things about being an artist

is marketing and making sure one

gets enough exposure.”

“The best part about being a fulltime

artist is when work ceases to

be work because it is so fulfilling

and nourishing to the soul. The art

encompasses my whole life. It is like

breathing,” Bongi says.

Criticism is part of life as an artist,

but Bongi has some advice.

“Everything can work in one’s favour.

Bad criticism can give one great

publicity and also help one grow

enormously as an artist,” she says.

In her free time, Bongi loves to listen

to good music and dance. She also

enjoys Indian cuisine, especially

since it’s tasty and healthy.

One look at Angeliz Venter is enough to tell you that this is no ordinary young lady.

She’s a 23-year-old student, part-time model and business owner. Pretty impressive, hey?


he Waverley beauty started

her business, KiCoco,

formerly known as Little

Gentleman, in 2016 while

studying B. Consumer Science:

Clothing Retail Management

at the University of Pretoria.

She made baby clothes as extra

production hours for her degree

before realising quickly enough that

there is a big market for baby and

toddler boys clothing.

In August of this year, she decided

to expand the business to boys, girls,

and unisex kids clothing up to the

ages of 10. She also added locally

produced baby vellies to the online

store. The shift in products prodded

Angeliz to change the name and says

it was inspired by kids around the

world and her love of coconuts and

islands. “All our designs are based on

inspiration gained from nature. We

strive to be sustainable and are a 100

percent no waste brand. We use all of

our off-cut fabrics in new designs and

repurposing them for pillow covers

and cushion stuffing,” she explains.

“I think starting a business so young

is the ultimate thrill and definitely

a good thing. Being so young I

don’t have the responsibility of

dependants and can take risks with

the business without worrying that it

will have an effect on anyone besides

myself,” Angeliz says.

Running a business, completing her

studies and working as a part-time

model is no easy task at best. “It gets

very difficult and tiring at times,

but luckily I am a very driven and

motivated person. I like to challenge

myself constantly and I think that

is what kept me going through

the last three years of running my

own business. I think the different

disciplines also helps keep my mind

fresh and prevents me from getting

overwhelmed too quickly,” she says.

Although she initially did all the

sewing herself, Angeliz these days

has a few students and a small scale

CMT (cut, make and trim factory) that

helps with production.

She designs everything herself but

says she gets her inspiration from the

people around her, especially moms.

The former Waterkloof High school

student was born and raised in the

capital and says she always knew she

wanted to one day work in fashion

and hopefully one day own her own

business. She just never expected it

to be this soon.

“The biggest lesson I’ve learned since

starting my business is to rather do

things the long and right way instead

of the quick and easy way, because

you will always have to fix the easy

way later on.

But, what is it about clothing,

especially kids clothing, that

makes Angeliz so passionate about

the industry?

“The clothing industry is very

tough and competitive and seeing

little kids especially babies in your

designs, makes it so much easier.

They just add an extra element of

achievement to your designs,”

she says.

While still in school, Angeliz decided

to get into modelling, at first to boost

her self-confidence but it evolved

from there.

You might not expect this, but

Angeliz loves spending time in

nature, whether it is skydiving,

hiking, mountain biking or simply

reading a book.

She loves sushi and her favourite

coffee shop to grab coffee with the

girls is Aroma Gelato in Lynnwood

Road. “Nothing beats a cup of

coffee with a waffle and ice cream,”

she laughs.

When work gets the better of

her and it’s time to take a break, she

spends a night in at home, watches

series or for a proper pamper

session heads to Ingaadi spa for a

relaxing massage.

KiCoco will launch on 2 November 2019 in the Oh My Baby store in Menlyn Mall

so make sure to swing by and grab a few pieces for the little people in your life.

The latest craze in the health community is Intermittent Fasting and of course we had to

find out more. Just in case you would like to try it out.



Stegen is a pro when

it comes to living a

healthy lifestyle. She’s the

creator of Kelfit Lifestyle

(now, an

Intermittent Fasting specialist as well

as a pregnancy and breastfeeding

expert. The mom of two is also an

ISSA Qualified Sports and Fitness

Specialist and Nutritionist specialising

in nutrition and has coached clients

to be the best version of themselves

all over the world. “I have battled with

my weight my whole life. After trying

every diet under the sun, battling

with anorexia and having a baby

where I picked up 30kg, I decided

enough is enough. In 2009 I watched

my first fitness show and decided

that I also wanted to be on stage. I

then started my fitness journey. It

took me 12 weeks to transform my

body and I have never looked back,”

Kelly says.



“I am not a huge believer in fad diets

but two years ago I was introduced

to Intermittent Fasting and as a

coach I was very open-minded to

try this new way of life /pattern of

eating. It took me two years to get

it right and find the magic with

IF - and I lost 8kg and maintained

my goal weight ever since. I truly

believe this is a life-changing way of

life and can help women with eating

disorders and obsessive eating

patterns, it is relaxed and just so

easy to follow if done the right way.

I did a lot of studying on this topic

and developed my own programme

of IF which I started introducing to

my clients in February this year. My

clients have had enormous success

on the programme and I am very

happy with how the ladies’ and men’s

bodies responded to it,” Kelly added.

Intermittent Fasting (sometimes

referred to as IF) is an eating schedule

which alternates between fasting

and feeding. A time window where

eating is allowed is set whereafter

you are only allowed to consume

food during that period. The rest of

the time is spent fasting – meaning

NO food is allowed. But, as with

everything in life there are a few

rules key to make this a healthy and

productive health choice for you.

“For example, you may eat only

between the hours of 10am and

6pm, or 12pm and 8pm …whatever

suits you - the levels range between

beginner all the way to expert. IF is

not a diet in the conventional sense,

but rather, a pattern of eating - a

lifestyle,” Kelly explains.



“Intermittent Fasting has potential

benefits for your metabolism, disease

prevention, cellular repair and

psychological well-being. Studies

have also shown it can help with

depression, anxiety, stubborn fat,

hormone issues and more,” Kelly says.

It’s also the perfect choice for

someone who does not like to eat

breakfast and feel they are disciplined

enough to give IF a go. “It is so much

easier than the conventional 5 meals

a day diet, it is really nice food and

IF promises a lot of benefits, not just

weight loss. It is also good for your

mood, skin, sleeping patterns and

hormones, and there are so many

benefits to doing IF,” Kelly adds.

It is based on the 16:8 hour principles

for beginner level and 18:6 hour for

intermediate level.

It really helps people who also have

high cortisol levels and stubborn fat

deposits that they cannot get rid of

(by lowering cortisol and balancing

hormones). Because your body learns

to utilise fats for energy and not

carbohydrates it helps to control your

hunger pangs as well,” Kelly adds.

The potential benefits of IF


• Improved mental clarity and


• Weight and body fat loss.

• Lowered blood insulin and

sugar levels.

• Reversal of type 2 diabetes.

• Increased energy.

• Improved fat burning.

• Increased growth hormone.

• Lowered blood cholesterol.

Let us help you put all this into a

practical and productive plan. Many

people are re-discovering this dietary

intervention. It can carry huge

benefits if it is done right: weight loss,

increased energy, reversal of type 2

diabetes and many other things.

“At Intermittent Fasting Online

I will guide you on what can be

drunk during your fast, what to

eat in your eating window and

more. If this is something that

you feel you would be disciplined

enough to do… getting started

is quick and easy and we have a

few plans to suit every lifestyle and

budget. IF has really changed the

composition of so many of our

clients bodies - they are loving the

IF lifestyle!” Kelly says.



What type of foods can one eat

when doing IF?

The plan is based on low carb/

higher fat… carbs are kept low but

not cut out completely. We also work

in one refeed day per week to keep

metabolism firing.

Can you still drink fluids when


Yes, you may drink all teas, coffees

as long as they are black or made

with a dash of fat-free or almond

milk, no more than 1/2 cup of milk in

the fasting period, and to be drunk

neat or with 1-2 sweetener or xylitol.

Water is obviously allowed freely

during your fasting period.

Is the diet very strict on

Intermittent Fasting?

No - the diet gives you many options

and you can still eat out while doing

IF. It is a complete way of life and

very do-able. We refer to it as a

“pattern of eating.”

“Some people believe in eating

whatever you want in your eating

window - this is not the case. You

need to eat enough protein, veggies,

good fats and a select number

of carbohydrates - that’s where

someone like me comes in - a coach

can teach you what you need to

know. A lot of people try and do Keto

- doing Keto is super hard and trying

to keep your body in ketosis even

harder. My plan is so easy to follow

and the food is delicious,”

Kelly explains.

What if you like eating breakfast?

Then you just change the fasting

window, you eat breakfast and eat

for 6 to 8 hours and then continue

your fast after that so you would skip

dinner. You would need to decide if

breakfast or dinner is more important

to you and base your feeding

window around that.

Do you have to count calories on

Intermittent Fasting?

No, we don’t count calories at all…

it is a way of life and you listen to

what your body needs. We fuel

our bodies correctly with the right

amount of nutrients.

Doesn’t Intermittent Fasting slow

down your metabolism?

Surprisingly, research suggests that

the effect of Intermittent Fasting has

the same or less negative effects on

metabolism compared to traditional

dieting. The reason why many

think Intermittent Fasting improves

metabolism is due to less loss of lean

body mass and greater fat burning.

How much weight can you lose

while IF?

It is entirely dependent on your body

and how strict you are. Fasting for

16 to 20 hours a day can help you

safely lose 1-2kg of fat every week.

While losing this much weight every

week is great, it’s how it happens

that’s really cool. Losing weight with

Intermittent Fasting means that you

will never have to count calories or

plan and prepare several meals a day.

This is dependent on how your body

responds and how much weight you

have to lose as well.

There’s a massive, ever-growing health conscious

movement worldwide ... hooray, we say!

More and more people are looking to eat healthily, searching for ingredients

with no artificial flavourants or colourants, no preservatives or added MSG,

non-GMO ... and very often also want suitable for vegans, too. Hello Tastebud –

the new brilliant range of spices from Cape Herb & Spice – which offers all this,

and more! With seven popular flavours to choose from – think Savoury, Seeded,

Zesty, Spicy, Herbed, Umami and Caramel – well-flavoured food, be it spicy or

sweet, savoury or salty, has never been easier (or tasted this good). You’ll find

them at your local stores for around R39.95 each. Details:

Herbed lamb ribs

Small lamb ribs are always a fingerlicking

winner, especially when done

on the braai. Use Tastebud Herbed

spice blend as a rub – packed with

thyme, rosemary, basil, marjoram,

coriander, ginger and loads of other

good things, it will up your rib game

to sensational. Serve with braaiblistered

vine tomatoes and lemons.

You’ll need:

800g lamb ribs; Tastebud Herbed

spice blend; 3 tbsp tomato sauce;

1 tbsp lemon juice; 1 tsp runny


To make:

Dust lamb ribs with spice blend and

set aside for 30 to 60 minutes. Brush

ribs lightly with olive oil and place on

a hot braai or under the grill element

of your oven. Turn often and cook

until done to your liking. Mix tomato

sauce, lemon juice, honey and half

a tsp of the Herbed spice blend and

generously paint ribs for the final

15 minutes of cooking. (If you do it

earlier, the basting sauce will burn.)

Serve right away.

Serves two.

Seeded pita chips with baked

Camembert and honey-roasted grapes

Every cook should have a few no-fail recipes they can turn to for

quick snacks to feed unexpected guests. These seeded pita chips

with baked Camembert and honey-roasted grapes is one of them!

Prep is only five minutes and your oven does the rest in under 15.

Spend more time with friends, less time in the kitchen – just the

way summer entertaining should be.

You’ll need:

1 Camembert; 1 clove garlic (peeled and sliced into slivers); 1 sprig

thyme; 1 large bunch red grapes; 2 tbsp honey; one packet of pita


To make:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the Camembert in a round

ovenproof bowl that just fits the cheese. Make tiny cuts in the

cheese and stuff it with garlic slivers and thyme leaves. Cut the

pita breads into triangles, paint very lightly with olive oil and

dust with Tastebud Seeded spice blend. Place on a baking tray

lined with baking paper. Place grapes on another lined baking

tray. Melt the honey by microwaving it for 20 seconds and pour

over the grapes. Place the bowl with Camembert on the tray

with the grapes. Place both trays in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes

until the pita is toasted, the grapes roasted and the Camembert

oozing. (The grapes and Camembert will take the same amount

of time, but keep an eye on the pita chips as they may need to be

removed a few minutes earlier.) Serve right away.

Savoury potato pizza with rocket and pecorino

Potato pizza? You’ve got to be kidding! Actually we’re not. It’s a real thing and

Romans have been savouring it for ages. Of course they call it pizza con le

patate, which admittedly sounds a lot more impressive than potato pizza.

There is no tomato base and zero cheese, so it’s kinder to the waistline and

your vegan friends can come to dinner.

You’ll need:

For the pizza dough ... 400g bread flour; 100g semolina; 1 packet (10g) instant

yeast; ¼ tsp salt; 260ml lukewarm water; 40ml milk; 1 tsp honey

For the topping ... 1kg baby potatoes (sliced as thinly as possible using a

mandolin); 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary; garlic-flavoured olive oil; Cape Herb &

Spice Savoury spice

To make:

Mix the flour, semolina, yeast and salt. Gradually add the water and mix. Add

the milk and honey to the last bit of water and add to the dough. Knead for 12

minutes. Put the dough, brushed with olive oil, in a large clean bowl, cover with

cling film and a tea towel and put in a nice warm spot for an hour to an hour

and a half until the dough has doubled in size.

Knock it back to remove all the air, cut into 4 equal pieces and shape into balls.

While the bread proves, parboil the potatoes in plenty of salted water until just

tender – it takes mere minutes. Drain, dry and toss with a generous glug of

olive oil so everything is well coated.

To assemble the potato pizza, roll out dough on a sheet of non-stick baking

paper. Brush with garlic-flavoured oil.

Pack with potatoes, dust with Tastebud Savoury spice and sprinkle generously

with rosemary leaves. Grind over black pepper and give it a final tiny splash of

olive oil. Place the pizza with the baking paper (this makes it so much easier to

handle!) on a preheated non-stick baking tray or a hot pizza stone and bake at

200°C for 10 to 15 minutes until done.

Drizzle a bit of lemon juice and olive oil over the rocket, give it a grinding of

black pepper and pile onto the potato pizza along with a few shavings of

Parmesan or pecorino (not for the vegans!) Tuck in right away while it’s warm.

This recipe makes 4 medium potato pizzas.

Zesty prawn and

zucchini pasta

Eating light and bright is always a

good idea, but in summer we really

crave it. It doesn’t come much faster

or healthier than this prawn and

zucchini pasta – which is on the table

in under 15 minutes. The Tastebud

Zesty spice has intense citrus notes

– the perfect foil for the richness of

prawns and the slight earthiness

of zucchini. Add parsley and basil

for extra freshness and tuck in

knowing it’s not just tasty, but good

for you too.

You’ll need:

16-20 prawns (deveined and peeled);

a fat clove garlic (minced); extra

virgin olive oil; 800g zucchini ribbons;

Cape Herb & Spice Tastebud Zesty

spice, bunch of flatleaf parsley (leaves

only, roughly chopped); tiny basil

leaves for garnish

To make:

Heat a generous glug of olive oil in

a large non-stick frying pan. Add the

garlic and prawns and stir-fry until

cooked through. Remove the prawns.

Add another glug of olive oil to the

pan if necessary. Fry the zucchini

ribbons over high heat until just

done – it takes mere seconds, you

want it al dente not mushy. Dust the

zucchini with Tastebud Zesty spice,

add parsley and the prawns. Toss to

ensure everything is coated with

the spice.

Garnish with teeny basil leaves and

serve right away.

Serves four as a light meal.

Entertaining should most definitely not be a chore and with the help of Mareliz Pretorius Vereecke

and her team at Armar Catering and Event planning, a wedding is as easy as pie.

When it comes to seriously good food,

there is a lot to be learned from Mareliz

Pretorius Vereecke. She is a whiz in the

kitchen, can whip up food for hundreds

of people whithout batting an eye

and has the perfect venue to help

make your dream wedding even more

special. Yes, she can basically do it all.

“I have always been interested in the

hospitality industry and worked around

the country as a food and beverage

manager for an international hotel

group. After I got married I decided to

change my career and went full-time

into catering,” Mareliz explains.

Armar catering was born and since the

inception the team expanded and the

company is now offering a full catering,

hospitality and event planning service.

Pretty impressive, even if we have to

say so ourselves.

The cullinary magic takes place at

Armar’s state-of-the-art kitchens in

Pretoria North but Mareliz also aquired

a portion of a 210 hectare conservancy

property a few years ago within the

greater Dinokeng Big 5 Reserve where

Armar House opened its doors.

The house is the perfect escape from

the hustle and bustle of city life and to

experience the African Bushveld.

It’s easily accessbile from Pretoria

and Johannesburg and the property

even allows a unique game viewing

experience on foot or by 4x4. The

walking trails guarantee that you’ll

see game from close-by, which makes

for the most amazing photos.

Sightings will most likely include

giraffe, zebra, blue wildebeest, impala,

kudu and blesbuck.

As it shares a 2km border fence with

the Dinokeng Big 5 Reserve quite a few

sightings of rhino have been reported

by guests at the house.

Just imagine, with jackal calls at

night the only sound disturbing the

peace, you’ll definitely relax and get

to unwind.

The guest farm has 3 neat en-suite

rooms, each sleeping two; a family

room sleeping 4 to 6 and a 10-sleeper

“dormitory” with its own bathroom and

separate toilet. The latter is mainly for

kids or those young at heart. It also has

its own TV and DVD station.

The house also boasts an open-plan

dining room/lounge and a huge

‘Out of Africa Stoep’ overlooking the

watering hole. It’s self-catering with

a fully equipped kitchen, a sparkling

plunge pool, braai lapa and boma.

“Our latest acquisition is our rustic

Bushveld feel wedding venue that can

host up to 270 people. Our wedding

couples have some of the most

beautiful wedding photographs with

the wild animals at the watering hole

visiting and being inquisitive,”

Mareliz says.

The chapel can seat 80 people and

for close family that needs to stay

over for a few days, the venue also

has two self-catering houses offering

accommodation facilities for 36

people. There is also a braai area for

the guys. “The fact that this can remain

as a rustic bushveld setting or can be

turned into an upmarket venue with

draping, candelabra, loads of quality

crockery and cutlery and fresh flowers

makes this an easy choice for any bride.

The event planning can be part of the

package and it’s only a 45 minute drive

from Pretoria.”

The venue is fully licenced to cater for

all needs. So if you’re on the hunt for

the perfect wedding venue and want

to keep it small and intimate, this is

the venue for you. It can be viewed on


And of course, with Armar specialising

in good food, the food selection can

range from traditional, to fusion and

even sushi - there is a fully trained

Sushi chef on-site.

Armar is well known for bespoke

themed menus including Italian,

Mexican, American to name a few and

a firm favourite for corporate functions.

Canapés will always remain popular as

it is easy to serve and easy to eat.

This way the guests can feast with

their mouths and eyes and still mingle

or network.

It is always good to stay in touch with

trends and food fads, as we will offer it

to new and old clients to entice them.

That is why we have been given rave

reviews over the years.”

“Unfortunately there are many flyby-night

catering companies in this

industry and all potential clients

should ask for references before

signing on the dotted line. We have

been fortunate that we have catered

for the very best, including the King of

the Royal Bafokeng, and the late Mrs

Adelaide Tambo. We also do regular

corporate functions for cellphone

service providers and private bankers.”

She has worked on some amazing

events. Her favourite event was a

midnight Oscar award celebration

ceremony at Ster-Kinekor, timed to

tie in with the live Oscars taking place

in Los Angeles.

When Mareliz is not busy running

around catering for events, or hosting

guests at Armar House she loves to

relax and unwind with a glass of chilled

white wine and a bowl of quality pasta,

served with olive oil and parmesan

cheese. Yummy!

“With the rare luxury of having

time off, I love to read recipe books,

more recipe books and maybe

something by Kathy Reichs for a bit

of variety.

Original cellar

Deetlefs Estate Pinotage

Deetlefs Estate Chenin Blanc


A maiden voyage from Europe on

3 October 1752 was the start of a legacy

and set in motion the story of the second

oldest wine estate in South Africa owned

by the same family - Deetlefs Wine Estate.

Since then each of the seven generations

contributed in their own unique way to

the success of the winery today.

Situated at the foot of the Du Toitskloof

mountains in the Breedekloof valley,

Rawsonville, the farm and vineyards

bear the indelible mark of the different

generations. But, just as the winery and

land bare a mark, the family has also

been shaped by the land.

“A golden thread runs through our

history, reflecting a boldly individual

approach, a strong set of values and

a long-term focus. Since 1994, we

put more focus on the international

markets and today more than 80%

of our wines are exported. Currently

it is my responsibility to create more

opportunities for generations to come

and to tell the story,” says owner and

winemaker Kobus Deetlefs.

Deetlefs Wine Estate has been exporting

their wine since 1999 and the estate

rakes in award after award for their

superb wine and winery. Five of their

wines scored top marks in the recent Tim

Atkin 2019 report (out of

2 115 wines tasted), three wines

achieved top awards at the China Wine

and Spirits Awards 2019. The Stonecross

Range from Deetlefs Wine Estate has

recently been awarded six gold medals

at the Gold Wine Awards 2019 and at

the recent Old Mutual Trophy Wine

Show the Deetlefs Reserve Chenin Blanc

2018 received an amazing 88% and the

Deetlefs Familie 80%. To name only a few.

Their secret? Good agricultural practices

are a combined form of art, science, skill

and passion. “It’s something we take

very seriously here at Deetlefs Wine

Estate. These practices are the important

foundation assisting our winemaker in

producing wines of consistently high

quality,“ Kobus adds.

“One of the greatest challenges and

achievements was turning the familyowned

wine estate into a dynamic wine

group, based on the culture and values

of the Deetlefs family. Something that

was succesfully done.”

You know we Get It girls love a safari ... and are passionate about our wildlife. And

we’re not averse to a glass of wine either. So when we combine the two ... bliss.

This month we’re raising our glasses to wineries that embrace conservation. Cheers!

Balance, the quirky range of generous, everyday wines, has

been relaunched after a stylish makeover ... and besides

looking (and tasting) good, also supports desert elephant

conservation. With Hank the elephant as the wine’s mascot,

Balance has adopted the Elephant Human Relations Aid

(EHRA) as a corporate social investment initiative. For every

bottle sold, a contribution is made to fund the EHRA PEACE

project, an educational programme promoting the peaceful

co-habitation of local communities with desert elephants in

Southern Africa. Taking the project even further, the wine’s

packaging uses digital technology linked to an exciting

online game to support this initiative ... play and you can

win Balance Bucks to buy more wine, and a donation is

made on your behalf. There are two ranges ... the affordable

Classic easy-drinking range and the Balance Winemaker’s

Selection range ... all really lovely wines for a summer

celebration. Available from your local bottle store or online

for between R47 and R67. Details: Play the game and buy the

of 18 gorgeous, vintage-style poster

prints Honestly. of some Is there of Africa’s anything most iconic

destinations more dramtically ... from wonderful Cape Town, as

Victoria We think Falls not! and Zanzibar. Designed

and illustrated by the massively

talented Duncan Butchart, they’re in

the ligne claire style of Hergé, creator

of Tintin, and are reminiscent of the

glamorous posters used by travel

agents in the 1950s and ‘60s. We’re

starting a collection of places where

we’ve been (and maybe where we

plan to go, too) ... and they make

exceptional gifts for international

visitors or friends living far from

home. They’re sold unframed, and

cost R300, R600 and R1 200 for A3,

A2 and A1 posters respectively.

most agréable French cult

beauty products

Let’s be honest ... French women really do

always seem to get it right. And one of

their favourite ranges is ours, too. We adore

the NUXE range of products, and can’t live

without the French cult multi-purpose dry

oil, Huile Prodigieuse, which has botanical

oils that nourish, repair and protect your

face, hair and body. Each of the NUXE Rêve

de Miel creams is joie to use ... from the

Ultra Comforting Body Cream and Hand

and Nail Cream to the exceptional Ultra

Rich Cleansing Gel for face and body. We’ve

just discovered the honey-scented Super

Skin Repair Balm which works wonders to

soothe areas which need it the most (think

windburned chin or sides of the nose,

dry elbows and heels ... and though we’re

not often keen to share our creams, this

one really does work for the whole family.

The products, which cost between R370

and R695, are available from Woolworths,

Truworths, Edgars and Foschini stores.

We’re giving away a hamper of these NUXE

products ... To stand a chance of winning,
