The story of Grand Constance

E-mail Print PDF

 



I consider myself very fortunate to be associated with the majestic Groot Constantia wine estate, the oldest wine farm in South Africa, dating back to 1685. You can imagine my excitement when I received a phone call ten years ago as a 28-year-old maverick winemaker to inform me that I had landed the job as winemaker of Groot Constantia. One of my tasks was to revive Grand Constance, the sweet wine that made Groot Constantia famous in the 18th and 19th century.

Another Good Food Diet gluten-free treat

This gluten-free custard tart has a rich-tasting filling and light crust which is quick and easy to make (no rolling!). The most unusual ingredient in this recipe is rice flour which you will find in the health food section of your supermarket, deli or pharmacy. You probably have the rest of the ingredients in your kitchen already. It is perfect as a dessert or coffee-time delight. This custard tart is a treat even for those who are not gluten-intolerant.

Managing your to-do list

E-mail Print PDF



People often use a to-do list to make sure they do the things that will make them achieve their day-to-day goals. But what if that to-do list grows faster than the speed at which you can complete tasks on the list? How can you make sure you are spending energy where it will make the biggest difference?
