Beginning of January, the shops were overflowing with ‘Back to School’ images and advertising. Images of pens, crayons and books line the shelves. Then the pens make way for pink and red with images of chocolate and hearts. Yes, it is nearly Valentine’s Day – again. The commercialized day of Love.

In December I started with a series on Boozy Desserts with my Tiramisu with whisky recipe. This recipe proved to be very popular. Also, towards the end of 2017 Backsberg Winery invited several food and wine bloggers to join in a #MyBacksbergRecipe campaign. The goal was to create the ultimate recipe to pair with the Pinotage Rosé.
Many years ago I traveled through Russia. It was an amazing experience. Growing up, I never thought I would stand on the Red Square, see Saint Basil’s Cathedral and touch the walls of the Kremlin. But after the fall of Communism, Russia opened up and I grabbed the opportunity to travel there, with both hands. I spent some time in Moscow and then took a boat down the Volga to Saint Petersburg. The experience and landscape was mind-blowing.
