Hangout with Heather – Stir It Up! Sauces create a stir in the kitchen and Wintery wines

Winter is certainly in the air and this week Heather has some yummy food and recipe ideas planned, as well as chatting one on one with the founder and creator of Stir It Up! Sauces Nini Jerman, whose tasty creations are currently taking South African kitchens by storm.

Amidst all the food and wine, we must remember to exercise, and Heather shares more about 6 simple wellness tips, that you can even do at your desk to keep you in peak condition, thanks to fitness buff, and Tropika Island of Treasure contestant, Trevor Lagerway.

Capsicum Culinary Studio have shared chef lecturer Eoin’s yummy risotto Milanese recipe and this looks so tasty and really easy to make, a great idea to spice up your lockdown culinary routine.

Heather celebrated Chardonnay Day yesterday (albeit with no Chardonnay) and shares more about the two latest offerings to come out of Vriesenhof’s vineyards, as well as sharing more about the new Sugar-Free Mixer options from popular brand Fitch and Leedes (yah for flattening our curves!)

Both Roodeberg and Steenberg Wine Farms have stepped up to the plate delivering some tasty must-haves – Roodeberg Reserve 2017 with its fruity and chocolatey yumminess and Steenberg’s 2017 Merlot are MUST haves for fireside sipping in the near future.

Lesser Known Somebodies – Anele Mdoda

I spoke to radio and television broadcaster Anele Mdoda and it is probably one of the best episodes. Hear how she was the Cristiano Ronaldo of Netball, why I didn’t make it as a radio DJ, A BIG SCOOP involving her family, tips on being successful, how she is gonna give me $100 when I go overseas, how she resigned from a burger place and how Anele will always encourage and help young talent.
