India House

Holy pope of Rome we’ve had a fantastic few days, all in celebration of valentine’s day, our wedding anniversary and sweet love.  India House is situated in the Bastiaanskloof valley, with wrap-around mountains and all the views to go with it. It’s only a 1.5 hour drive from Cape Town via the ridiculously scenic Bainskloof pass. For 4 days this was our HQ of  good food, reading, relaxing, a million swims and 1 hike.

Valentine’s breakfast – wild flowers and a plate of grilled cheese sandwiches, which I forgot to photograph.

A super easy gazpacho recipe – grill whole tamotoes and any other vegies you have lying around like carrots, onions and peppers with loads of fresh herbs, S&P and olive oil on 180 degrees until the skins go black. Peel these off and whiz everything in a blender with yoghurt. Refrigerate until cold and serve with crumbled feta.
