is a freelance copy editor based in Cape Town. She enjoys the finer things in life, including good wine, good food, adventurous travels… and good grammar. If you could only live off one type of food, what would it be? I’m an enthusiastic gardener, so the perfect, aromatic, sun-ripened tomato is an eternal quest. They’re bursting with lycopene, vitamin C and fibre. Recipe in this issue you’ll be trying first? It’s the usual toss-up between good and evil: orange and watercress salad vs chocolate vodka. Foodie destinations you want to travel to? Cappuccino, pasta sauces, gelato… the question is: which region of Italy? Taste you’ll never forget? Haggis! What food can you not resist? If there’s a good Shiraz on offer… er, what food?
