A guide to this site

Hand to Mouth – all about what we eat and drink.

As a South African wine writer, wine brand consultant and commentator on restaurants, food and wine is what I do – and this is where I explore it. Please join the table.

At “food talk” and “wine talk”, the site has open forums for discussions about food and about wine.
At “wine columns”, my writings for a daily newspaper, the Cape Times, are published.

There are also ongoing reviews and discussions on restaurants in the “restaurant reviews” section, and if you are eating in Cape Town, please have a look at my restaurant guide of places in Cape Town and surrounds, and also send me a review. More on this publication on the top menu. There will also be occasional posts under “Eating with Andre”, accounts of occasional meals with a very hungry man. And if you are thirsty for something other than wine, The Thirsty Man has the advice you crave.

On the Mixed Case link up top, you’ll find a synopsis of my book called Mixed Case – A Unique Guide to the Cape Winelands. Check it out for a different take on the winelands.
