Raymond Ackerman at Kalk Bay Books KALK BAY Books and Jonathan Ball Publishers host the launch of “A Sprat to Catch a Mackerel” by Raymond Ackerman, who will be in discussion with Donald Paul. When Ackerman was fired from his job in 1966, he persuaded a group of friends to loan him the money to buy three small Pick n Pay stores, which at the time employed a total of 175 people. On his retirement 44 years later, he had changed the face of southern African retail, growing his company to encompass 792 stores in eight countries, employing more than 60 000 people and generating an annual turnover of around R60 billion. In “A Sprat to Catch a Mackerel”, Ackerman highlights key principles to build your business. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet one of South Africa’s most admired businessmen at Kalk Bay Books at 124 Main Road, Kalk Bay this Thursday, 30 September, at 18:00 for 18:30. RSVP by tomorrow, Wednesday 29 September, to and indicate numbers for catering purposes. Please title your email Raymond Ackerman at Kalk Bay Books. Alternatively call (021) 788-2266.

New Alpha course

The wedding season has started again, and with Carl seeming to know the whole world, there is hardly a Saturday, or for that matter a day, when Clovelly is not hosting some type of a function. Sunday lunches are quite extraordinary, from the first day that Carl started, we have been doing between 120 and 150 people. You should join us for great food at giveaway prices, and the vibe is great.

THE King of Kings Baptist Church is starting a new Alpha course for new Christians and those interested in finding out more about Christianity on Wednesday 6 October. The launch dinner/talk will start at 18:45. RSVP to Jo Sharples at

IN SPRING, Earth’s axis increases its tilt toward the sun and the length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly causing new plant growth to “spring forth”, giving the season its name. – (

Food made with passion and garnished with love is what you can expect at Captains Table.

It has been a busy past few months for the

new owners of The Red Herring Restaurant and Skebanga's Bar in Noordhoek. Recent developments include the launch of their new wine list. The wines selected for the list by the restaurant owners, with the invaluable help of Wim Braak of Lourensford Wine Estate, were sampled during a series of food and wine pairing evenings. The wine list was awarded a Platinum award in the Diners Club Wine List Awards 2010. The dishes designed for these evenings have set the standards for the new restaurant menu, due to be launched this month. In addition to this, renovations to the building and restaurant are well underway aimed at making the dining experience even better.

We will custom design your year end function with a menu to suit your budget or staff's dietary requirements. Have your kitchen tea or baby shower on the deck with Snacks and a cash bar. Treat your loved one to an anniversary dinner or just be romantic. Let us organize a surprise birthday party or just plan an evening out with special friends.

We have a selection of take-home food, together with all the conveniences that a “garage shop” offers - fresh produce, daily newspapers, magazines, cigarettes, airtime, sweets and more. We have a fantastic group of people (some call them staff) who add so much value to our business in terms of expertise, friendliness and a willingness to grow with us. During our first year of trade we also took on the catering facilities at the Simon’s Town Country Club. Here we are able to add value to the shop by offering our customers a sit-down experience. And non-members are more than welcome to enjoy the pub and dining areas from as early as 08h00 daily, except Mondays. Our catering division can cater either in or outside the club environs and we would be happy to quote for any function, from platters to weddings, corporate functions, birthdays, Christmas functions and a whole lot more.
