Hi! My name is Janet.

This blog exists because I wanted to find a space where I could keep track of all of the amazing places I have visited over the years. I'm a huge lover of good food and good wine. The aim of this space is to document all of my special memories at wonderful restaurants and wine farms, and to share these memories with you.

The blog is named "Just Janet" because I am literally just your average Joe (Janet)
exploring the food and wine venues in and around Cape Town.



I live in Cape Town with my husband, Gary, and my two naughty Staffies. 
I left my high school teaching job after nine years to explore the world of blogging (eek!)
I'm currently studying wine through WSET and am now on Level 3.
I'm also a keen freelance writer and love to write about my two passions: Food and Wine.

I've recently started up a side project: My Grapevine Page - where I aim to write about wine specifically (what I am learning as I fill up my own wine glass). Feel free to follow along for some wine education...

If you're wondering about where you'd like to visit next for a Sunday lunch, or you're pondering about going wine tasting, have a look through the blog posts and pick one you fancy.

You can have a look at all of the places I have been to so far here.



All of the opinions and photographs on here are my own
(or of my husband, family and close friends who accompany me on my outings).
The photos that aren't mine are credited.
I am not a food or wine critic - I merely state what I enjoyed (or didn't).

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
