Summer is coming that we are sure of and are really looking forward to. It the exchange rate that is a major problem now, I mean very favourable for visitors to our fair shore and crazy fur us to travel out of the country, so I’d like to welcome all would are planning their vacations to include South Africa, moreover to The City of Cape Town, the Mother City, make your plans today, it’s going to bed a good holiday.

Took Mom and Uncle Jimmy to the country cousins on Sunday, invited for lunch we were twas a prelude to Moms 89th birthday on Wednesday, Pilotage and beer flowing, rugby and foody things discussed around the table lots of fun was had by all. The Kluze in the Kitchen really enjoyed the meal, mainly ‘cause he had a cooking day off, a lekkerlicious salad starter followed by a delicious Venison meatloaf with vegetables and rice and mushroom sauce with a creamy pie for dessert then relaxing on the patio with a cheese platter and finishing off homemade Limoncello. Must say Mom enjoyed very much now the pressure is on to find a suitable place to take her for lunch on Wednesday in the Rondebosch, Claremont, Kenilworth area. Got any suggestions?

Here’s some great new and always exciting to here about a new release by a great vocalist.

Giacomo Gates Celebrates The Release of His New CD “Everything is Cool”

Gates approaches jazz singing with a showman’s poise and an aficionado’s zeal. With his deep, cognac baritone and his vintage-hipster lexicon, his phrasing and his bearing, he upholds a distinctly masculine ideal of deceptively easy nonchalance. Gates is known as the modern day heir to Eddie Jefferson, the godfather of vocalese. Here he uses the style sparingly, but to great advantage. never showboating by using the challenging technique. Backed by his go-to pianist, John di Martino and guitarist Tony Lombardozzi leading the rhythm section and Grant Stewart out in front on saxophone, Giacomo sings and swings his way through a dozen tunes – some familiar favourites, some rarely heard gems. He may be soft and subtle or he may be hip and humorous but one thing Giacomo Gates is not, is predictable.

This story from Nestor Jazz News


So you’re a Hummus and a beer fan are you? Well now the good news is that you can indulge in both all at one time, in a glasss. An Israeli brewery, the Meadan Craft Brewing is now making Meadan Chickpea Malt Ale. Why you may ask? They wanted to make a kosher-for-Passover gluten-free beer, and did, so now hummus fans can rejoice by raising a glass of the favourite food.


Today is National Apple Betty Day in America!

Celebrate today, hey any apple pie is good any day, but The Klutz In The Kitchen thinks that the date should be changed to the 7th October, why you ask, it’s the head hocho’s Moms birthday on that day and here name happens to ne Betty see. Any how the Betty is a crustless apple pie seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. An apple brown betty is a common variation, which includes layers of sweetened breadcrumbs.

This classic American dessert dates back to the colonial period and probably evolved from the traditional English bread pudding. The name “brown betty” first appeared in print in 1864 when it was mentioned in a Yale Literary Magazine article.

In honour of National Apple Betty Day, bake your own version of this scrumptious dessert and top it with lemon sauce, ice cream, or whip cream. Yum!
