A Little Help From Our Friends


I’m sorry we’ve been so quiet on the blog. We’re coming off an epic Design Indaba, a relaxed Maynardville Open Air run, and a lovely Argus Cycle Tour (in the Cycle Tour Trust VIP tent, no less), Getaway Expo, and Eat Out Produce Awards night market, and heading into Constantia Food & Wine Festival, and four wedding-engagement functions in the next month. Life is full and hectic and exciting, and we’re really grateful to be enjoying a bumper ‘high’ season this year.

But we’re also looking ahead to our second winter, which isn’t far off, and we’ve got one particularly special project in planning stage, which I hope to share with you, dear reader, in the coming week.

One thing I never really planned on when I launched this business, but has been a major part of our growth and satisfaction, is the wonderful community of food friends we have developed over the past sixteen months of scooping. Our small sister food businesses inspire, encourage and support us in so many ways. We are coming of age at a time when there are more artisanal food businesses in Cape Town than ever before, and it’s a wonderful time to be making like-minded friends. We share deliveries, equipment, advice, recommendations, gossip (the best currency of food markets, everywhere!). It is immensely fulfilling, and I’ve really called on the network in the last week, sitting down with three wiser and more experienced food friends, for help with our special, top secret project.  Everyone’s been so generous with their expertise and time, it’s really reminded me how fortunate we are in our friends.
