Sir Hummus

In Amsterdam's ever more popular Pijp district, Sir Hummus opened their doors at the beginning of January 2015.

Founded by Guy, Dori & Lior, their quest has been to search for the perfect hummus.

Guy and Lior moved to Holland to study. During this time, Guy developed a passion for making hummus. After much experimenting, he found the perfect balance.

We walked in, drenched from one of the wettest days this year in Amsterdam. After warming up over a glass of mint tea, we ordered bowls of smooth, creamy hummus with delicious soft pita breads and Lior's vibrant red special salad. They only serve hummus 3 ways, au natural, with slow-cooked beef or with magic eggs!

The hummus is made with the greatest love and care. Dried chickpeas are soaked overnight, then cooked up and blended with Israeli tahini, lemon and cumin. We suspect that one of the secrets to this hummus's perfection is the addition of the cooking liquid while blending and balancing all the ingredients.

They also have a secret sauce, sharp and spicy. We suggest you use it with caution.

We'll definitely be back. This is pure, honest and real food - just the way we like it.

Babylonstoren

Earlier this year, to celebrate 10 years of working together, we travelled to Mischa's home town of Cape Town in South Africa.

We were greeted by warm summer sunshine, the most amazing food and gorgeous wines. For some time now, we had heard about the beautiful wine estate of Babylonstoren, situated between Franschoek and Stellenbosch. Driving up on the long dirt road on a scorching hot Sunday afternoon, with vineyards on either side and the mountains ahead of us, we were certainly in for a treat.

The manicured and sculpted gardens, also referred to as the Versaille of Africa, welcomed us. The fertile land produces the most amazing, ripe and varied ingredients which are used in their two restaurants, The Greenhouse, which offers a more laid back and relaxed atmosphere and their fine-dining restaurant Babel.

Hours can be spent wandering through the gardens and surroundings. If you have more time, and the budget, you can also stay in the Farm Hotel, which is tailored to be your home away from home. There's also a spa where you can be pampered and rejuvenated.

The shop sells the most beautiful local produced - think artisan breads baked right on the premises, meat, cheese, fruit and vegetables. Not to mention their own label wines, books and other beautiful items.

The only way to best appreciate this magnificent part of the world is not by reading the written word, but by experiencing it trough photos and images, or better yet, by going and visiting it for yourself.

For more information, visit Babylonstoren.
