To go without electricity for a couple of hours is a bad enough experience for most, but imagine the horror if the power grid were to stay down for days, or even weeks! The Taste Detectives have put together a list of Restaurants to visit during your loadshedding cuts.

Well you be the judge of that, I'm here to ask, "is a Restaurant the place for the Mobile phone?" or "Have we lost site of what is in front of us?"

Take time to look at your Husband. Take time to speak to your wife. Take time to savor the moment around the dinner table. But most importantly, remember to use the special moment when going out, as a time to connect, talk, observe, listen and Love.
