cutting a mango with amazing skill
June 10th, 2015 by Tanya du Randt

A mango is a very messy fruit to eat. It is sticky and all over the place, but super good tasting. This street vendor however has great skills and slices up a mango so that it is ready to dig into.

Not only is it ready to eat, it also looks great! If I were to work a knife in that way I would surely end up with a few fingers missing…

Welcome to South Africa: Where we lockup EVERYTHING
June 8th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

In South Africa we know that anything that is not locked, bolted down or in a safe, has a good chance of “disappearing”. Some people have taken this very seriously even going so far as to lock up their food.

Pizzas are very popular, especially in winter time, so remember to carry a lock with you always. You never know when your food will find a new home…

Welcome to South Africa: where we lock up EVERYTHING! ­čÖé

You should never neglect your health and during Defiance Monday we would like people to seriously look at this as well. We are not encouraging people to take up that pesky exercising thing. It is more important that we look at maintaining a healthy and sufficient level of carbohydrates, fats and calories. Here is our solution:

beer can patties
May 21st, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

This is probably one of the most disgustingly beautiful things I have ever seen. There are few loves greater than the love for great food and these find gentleman are creating burger patties that should have their own monument.

This is not your average every day of the week type burger patties and I think most mere mortals would only be able to stuff one into their faces in a single sitting. Doing it would however be great fun and I would recommend it for everyone.

It will definitely be a mess. It will definitely leave a smile on your face. It will definitely make your friends jealous when you put a picture of it up on Facebook or Instagram.

rainbow cupcakes
May 21st, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

Too many recipes you find online these days are either near impossible to pull off, cost loads to do or contain ingredients that you would only find on another planet. These rainbow cupcakes are however something out of the ordinary and is made using far more conventional ingredients.

Granted it would still take you a bit of time to make these little masterpieces, but that would be it. The ingredients are ridiculously expensive and the techniques are what most cooks would be able to do without too much trouble.

The video is just over 8 minutes long and by the end you will be drooling!

I think I will have to bake some of these for myself. Cupcakes are your friend. Rainbow cupcakes are your best friend. They’re everyone’s friend.

I think it is time to go on a strictly carb diet. It is sure to curb my hunger and also put on some much needed fat to help me care less about the winter cold. This one should do.

Enhanced Water

I have always known that those vitamin waters can’t be that amazing. It was just proven once again when I saw the advanced water on the shelves. I prefer to stay hydrated and focused through enhanced water.

happy sandwich featured image
April 15th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

I really should be doing these posts when I am hungry. Some of these look good, others look absolutely drool-inducing faint-and-fall-over delicious!

The thing about sandwiches is that they don’t need to be overly complex to be amazing. You just need some decent bread and then you start throwing stuff on there. Something as simple as the one from Australia goes down a treat with a cup of coffee. Then again, something like that masterpiece from Uruguay or the Kaya Toast just makes me want to overindulge BIG TIME!!!

(It also looks like a great reason to travel around the globe for an all-you-can-eat-holiday)

March 30th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

You know how you are always trying to cut back on sugar. It is however difficult to see the hidden sugar in many products. Here is a look at some of the sauces that people in South Africa use on a daily basis and how much sugar they contain. A can of Coke is also thrown in there for comparison.
