apple country bistro

If you're looking for something to do on your public holiday, go check out the Apple Country Bistro in Muldersdrift (around there).  It's a nice drive - just out of town enough to make you feel like you've taken a real excursion but close enough to go just for lunch.  It's a quaint little family run homestyle bistro that I encountered a few weeks ago run by a glamorous young lady named Gwynne Conlyn & her brother Julius and daughter and son-in-law who is the chef.  The food is err-mazing and it's one of those places that has no menu because the menu changes every day.  Ok enough gushing... now for pictures.... And if you wanna make a booking go take a look at their fb page: 

This is Julius, he introduced himself to us by saying, "Ooh, you have wine, we drink wine a lot around here!"

Freshly picked rocket, blue cheese, fig & pomegranate salad.

Home-made liver pate with freshly baked rye bread

This is Gwynne (in the middle) and her daughter and the chef JP & his wife Kim.

champagne, macaroons & sunshine... oh... & horses

I'm so excited I found these pics... I thought I had lost them - yay!!  Ok, so I know this is a bit post-dated but I took these pics at the Veuve Clicquot Polo in Franschoek a few weekends ago (whilst the air was still warm and the leaves still green) and what a fabulous day it was.  I have never seen so many genuinely well dressed people in one place and so much champagne in one place.  I genuinely wish everyday could be like that...

Love this old man

The fabulous Janine Jellars looking.... well... fabulous... naturally (left)

These macaroon covers look like pretty little pink nipples

This girl won best dressed. She made this dress herself... how purrty!
