Searching for the finer things is never easy. With so many places to go and new things to try, it can all be a little overwhelming. But when you find those instances of magic, whether they are thousands of miles away, or sitting right in front of you, it's all worth it.

“The way to find a needle in a haystack is to sit down.” - Beryl Markham

Here's to finding your magic wherever that may be. Just remember to make time for yourself. Take a seat, pour yourself a chilled glass of your favorite libation and soak it all in.  

🧭 Places to Go

Every once in a while, you are treated to a culinary experience that combines some of the most picturesque views in the world with an expertly crafted tasting menu, perfectly paired wines and a magical vibe. Located just 30 minutes outside of Cape Town, South Africa at the foot of Chapman's Peak Drive, the Chefs Warehouse at Tintswalo Atlantic has it all.  With ingredients sourced from a selection of small, sustainable local suppliers with a focus on marine produce, and an incredible selection of South Africa's finest wines, this homage to the ocean is one dining experience you wont want to miss.
