Culminating on Friday 7 August 2015, this is where I have been out and about.
Friday 7 August 2015
I was really excited to have been invited to the Good Housekeeping Celebrity Bake Stars 2015 event. I left work very early to head out to Cassia Restaurant on the Nitida Wine Estate in Durbanville. I was there just before 9am and stood in an amazingly long queue to get in.
We were greeted with stunning displays, a few nibbles to snack on and then went through to the show were Caron had thankfully kept us seats in the front row! It was a lot of fun, albeit chaotic, and I went home with a few treats for Dave and an amazing goody bag full of wonderful things.

The following Sunday Dave and I headed to the Winelands Chocolate Festival 2015 at the Lourensford Wine Estate. We got there at 10am and I reckon we were amongst over 300 people. The stands were crowded and only some of them offered samples. I tried to talk to a few stand owners but that did not work very well. I think their interest was in people who were spending money! The tickets cost R120 a piece and frankly that was quite expensive for what was on offer. Thankfully I had media accreditation and we live close by. By the time we left at 11am the cars were streaming in and I can only imagine how difficult the show would have been to navigate. We used the visit to also buy coffee from the Coffee Roasting Co. on the estate.
