RESTAURANT LISTINGS

Summer Eating

Fruit-wise, apples, Cape gooseberries, coconuts (also a good oil to cook with), dates, guavas, grapefruit, naartjies, oranges, paw paws, pineapples, pears, sweet melon, strawberries lemons (get your daily dose by adding a slice to your glass of water. Or your evening G n T!), nectarines, bananas and avocados. Great, we have plenty of avos around us, filled with healthy oil (we should be cooking with avo oil as well) and they are delicious in breakfast smoothies, on pizza and salads and prepared a heap of other ways as well. Lovely to see Lowveld fruit crops such as grapefruit, naartjies, oranges, paw paws, lemons, guavas and bananas are in season now.
