• At Food&Home, we’re lucky enough to be on the ground, getting to try new foods, experience new equipment and learn about new brands. Every month we will be sharing a list of our Editor’s favourites that we just know you will enjoy!


    Mother’s Love Natural Products

    Favourite cleaning product
    Mothers Love Products’ range of eco-friendly cleaning products not only smells amazing thanks to the pure essential oils but also works really well and is perfect for those with allergies – like so many of us!  it should come as no surprise to have these products on our editor’s favourites for March as their products are not only effective and made of outstanding quality, but are beautifully packaged, making it a joy to display in your home. All products have a pure essential oil base (specifically chosen for its cleaning properties) that leaves the home smelling fresh and creates a sense of occasion when using it.  We also appreciate  that they are locally developed and manufactured right here,  in Cape Town, South Africa.

    Ernie Els Wines

    Our editorial team has been loving Ernie Els this month! The Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé is a dry, fresh and fruity wine – perfect as a picnic companion or to enjoy along with a cheese & charcuterie platter or a light salmon dish. The nose bursts with spring blossoms, fresh raspberry and strawberry notes, with a refreshing herbal cut. The wine is a perfect blend of the winery’s prominent varietal – Cabernet Sauvignon and blended with a splash of Cinsault to form the beautiful pale pink colour. It’s available for purchase from the Ernie Els Wines online shop for R110 per bottle.
