I am always looking for interesting recipes with eggs as they are the perfect breakfast food. Combined with the live Greek yoghurt in this recipe, you also introduce beneficial gut- friendly probiotics to your diet.

Herbed Greek yoghurt sauce

1 cup Greek yoghurt (see page xx) 1 tbsp dill, finely chopped
1 tbsp mint, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, grated

1/ 3 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Eggs in chilli ghee

1 heaped tbsp ghee or unsalted butter 1 tsp chilli flakes
1/2 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp ground cumin

4 large eggs

To garnish

1⁄2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
1⁄2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
1 spring onion, finely chopped or sliced salt and pepper to taste

To make the herbed Greek yoghurt

Evenly mix Greek yoghurt, chopped dill, mint, grated garlic, salt and ground black pepper together. Cover tight with plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge for 1 hour.

To cook the eggs in the chilli ghee

Combine the ghee or unsalted butter, chilli flakes, paprika and ground cumin in a pan over medium heat, stirring continuously. Once the butter has melted, let the spices cook gently for another minute, then turn the heat up and break the eggs carefully into the chilli ghee mixture, place the lid on the pan and cook to your preference (I prefer soft and sunny side up).

Lastly serve the fried eggs and yoghurt on a plate in any manner that pleases you, sprinkling generously with the herbs and chopped spring onions.

Banana Flour Pancakes by Marlien Wright

Brunchtime goals

Kids love these and you can feel quite smug when another wheat-free meal has been served to your family. Bananas are rich in inulin, a resistant starch that travels all the way to the large intestine where it becomes food for your good bacteria.

Ingredients

3⁄4 cup banana flour
2 eggs
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
salt to taste
50 ml of A2 milk, water or a milk substitute like coconut/almond or rice milk
ghee or coconut oil

Method

Simply add all the ingredients, except the ghee/coconut oil, to a mixing bowl and beat well until you have a smooth consistency.

Then scoop/pour the batter into a hot pan that has been coated with a ghee/coconut oil. The size of each pancake should more or less resemble that of an American pancake, or ‘crumpet’.

Wait for small bubbles to appear on the surface before turning over, aiming for an attractive golden appearance and then serve with your choice of topping.

Note: Top with fresh berries/bananas, yoghurt and raw honey. For a more savoury option try streaky bacon with some real maple syrup

Rialheim & @home celebrate four years working together with a bespoke new collection of unique tableware jewellery
Tableware jewellery - the new collection by Rialheim for @home

Tableware jewellery - the new collection by Rialheim for @home

Rialheim will make its fourth appearance in selected @home stores countrywide this December. In celebration of our relationship which started in 2015 we have collaborated with the team at @home to bring you a collection of unique tableware jewellery to bring homegrown sophistication to your festive table this season. 

 

As a proud local supplier to @home, we wanted to celebrate the handmade element that occurs in each product by highlighting it even more accentuating each items individuality and allowing the natural power of ceramics to flow more freely. To achieve this we have developed a tableware accessories collection with three different looks. 

Scratched matte black with bronze rim   Each item was individually scratched by our Artisans to ensure the uniqueness of each item. It is our aim that this freeness in making resonates with the @home end user. At the same time we wanted the bronze and matte black to flow naturally into each other. This colour combination is dedicated to our African culture and heritage.

Scratched Sky Grey with bronze rim   This colour combination also features the handcrafted texture, but what we love about the new Sky Grey, featuring in our new collection  Evolution , is the combination of matte black and white that naturally fuse together in the kiln highlighting the handmade texture on each piece.

The Big Bang white and black with an exposed nude clay rim   The Big Bang glazing technique provides each item with a unique look and allowed our glazing team to play with white and matte black. We combined it with the exposed nude terracotta to balance the strong glazing technique. Each piece in this collection is truly one-of-a-kind.

“Our journey with Rialheim has been a truly inspirational one. Not only is it amazing to see a young local talented brand turn into an international success story but their passion for developing and inspiring people is closely aligned with @home’s core values. We are very proud to be associated with such amazing people.”

-      Lelani Adamson, @home Buying Manager.

 

As Rialheim celebrates six years of #DreamBelieveFly we felt it relevant to celebrate the people whose skilful hands create the uniqueness in each product. This collection is a true reflection of each artisan’s talent and the magic of African Clay. We salute the team members who have grown from a gardener to one of our best artisans in the studio today, the person who started as a packer in our studio to heading up our dispatch department today, just to name a few amazing journeys. As a company, we believe in all of their dreams and are extremely proud of the development so far and excited to see this evolve in further as their skills develop.

Rialheim regularly talks about the pivotal role @home played in our journey as a company. It’s this partnership that has allowed more people access to our products and story by featuring us in their stores. It’s a partnership that has allowed Rialheim to simply move beyond an artisanal brand while opening doors that we were only dreaming of. This has enabled us to tackle big projects, both locally and internationally. 

The new Rialheim collection will be available in these @home stores from 6 December:

Cape Town: V&A Waterfront, Cavendish Square, Century City, Tygervalley, V&A Breakwater Centre

Durban: Gateway

Johannesburg: Design Quarter, Mall of Africa, Melrose Arch, Sandton

Win with Rialheim & @home

To celebrate our new collection we are giving away a complete set in either Sky Grey & Bronze, Matte Black & Bronze or Big Bang & nude clay to one lucky reader valued at R2150. To enter, simply answer the question below. Winners will be announced on 14/01/2019. T’s & C’s apply.

Eating for your gut and mindful festive feasting: Interview with Marlien Wright 
Rialheim Marlien Wright

Marlien Wright is an avid yogi, nutrition coach, food writer and mother of two. She launched her first cookbook The Yoga Kitchen: 100 Easy Superfood Recipes in 2016 and has recently launched her second wellness orientated cookbook, The Mandala Kitchen: 100 recipes to heal and restore the gut. This is the second time that Marlien has collaborated with Rialheim in her books using our bespoke serveware for styling and serving. We recently met with Marlien to discuss her latest book and what’s to come.

 Congratulations on launching your second cookbook, tell us a bit more about the book.

Thank you, my second book, The Mandala Kitchen focuses on eating for your best Gut Health. Good gut health translates into a strong immune system, natural weight management, better mood and reduced inflammation.

 

What's your favourite recipe from the book?

That’s a devious question and very difficult to answer, but I can nominate the Sesame & Miso Chicken – which is definitely a crowd pleaser, as well as the Chocolate Pots which is pure yumminess - minus the guilt.

 

This is the second time that you have worked with Rialheim for your cookbooks, what’s the relationship been like and why do you enjoy working with our products? 

I absolutely love working with Rialheim, the ceramics inspire me to create beautiful dishes and they are so wonderfully unique, cheeky and beautiful. I also love the Rialheim team and their philosophy of collaboration and bravery. I am very proud to have a relationship with Rialheim and look forward to celebrating their delightful pieces in the future, I just know when I see a new collection from Rialheim it will put a huge grin on my face.

 

When you’re not cooking up recipes for a new cookbook, you’re also a busy yoga teacher and nutritional coach. How do you strike a balance and what can we expect to see from you next year? Any new projects you would like to share? 

I am a mom of two little girls which keeps me very busy, but when there is time, I enjoy reading, knitting, photography, walking or hiking. I am always working towards simplifying my life, and finding joy in the everyday rituals and simplicity, it is my greatest challenge! With that in mind it has inspired me to dedicate my 3rd cookbook to really simple nourishing meals as well as the therapeutic, mindful and zen aspect of cooking and eating.

 

What’s your ultimate comfort food?

I love potatoes, and after years of them getting a bad rap, we now know that they are actually fabulous gut health food, especially once cooked and cooled – potato salad here we come! I really love a baked potato, served with a homemade slaw…or homemade stews, they speak to me!

 

The festive season is notorious for over indulging - what are your tips for feasting without putting on the kilos? Whats your favourite Christmas dish? 

Well my best piece of advice would be to follow a Mediterranean approach to the big Christmas lunch, start with a salad, then a vegan dish such as stuffed mushrooms, then the main course of either roasted Turkey, Lamb and/ or pasture fed Ham or a vegetarian main such as , and then fishing off with a desert, give yourself a good 45 min between each course and choose organic & pasture fed only – always strive for quality above quantity. My favourite Christmas dish is roasted Brussels Sprouts dressed with a sprinkling of Pecorino cheese, olive oil, lemon juice and sundried onions…so yummy

 One quote to live by? 

“The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.” Thich Nhat Hahn – to me this translates into shifting my focus away from my own issues and worries and directing it towards they only thing that really matters…our relationships with our loved ones. Namaste!

 

Where can people buy the book?

The Mandala Kitchen is available from all major book stores such as Exclusive Books, as well as online retailers Takealot.com & Yuppiechef.com

 

We’re giving away 6 copies of The Mandala Kitchen

Interior design tips and tricks, we interview the owner of The Post House Hotel in Greyton
Each room in the Post House Hotel has a unique style, each with their own charm.

Each room in the Post House Hotel has a unique style, each with their own charm.

Janet Higginson and her husband, John, recently embarked on a massive project transforming the historic Post House Hotel in Greyton into a tourist destination that mixes the old with the new whilst being able to compete with some of the best boutique hotels in the world. Their impeccable style combined with a flair for hospitality and property development has resulted in a country style retreat perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of city living. Undertaking such a project is definitely not for the faint hearted and requires a clear vision from the onset. In this interview, we sat down with Janet to discuss her process.

 What was your inspiration when renovating the Post House?

Colour definitely played an integral part in our inspiration for the hotel. The property before was very neutral and we wanted to incorporate more energy and personality into the space with the strategic use of colour.

The eatery features rich fabrics and subtle pops of colour.

The eatery features rich fabrics and subtle pops of colour.

How did you balance incorporating the old with the new?

We worked slowly through each section trying to optimize it to its full potential and using bold, rich fabrics helped nicely to set the tone. The Post House was originally constructed in 1860 and is one of Greyton’s oldest buildings so we wanted to pay homage to the rich history in our rooms and public spaces. The building was used as a trading post and a place for lodgings for tired travellers. The main building which houses the restaurant and new coffee pod, also includes the pub, which is well-known for the Bells Whiskey advert and was also Greyton’s Post Office. We have honoured the pub’s humble roots with a vintage post box perched on the counter.

Why did you choose Rialheim for most of your wall decor?

Rialheim products are funky and original giving each space personality and flair. We also love being able to display skulls that are made out of ceramics as they are kind to nature whilst bringing the beauty of Africa indoors.

What are your top tips for anyone embarking on a project like this?

1. Make sure you have the time to focus and reflect while pushing through - having no other distractions helps a lot!

2. Keep to your budget as much as possible as it is easy to get carried away and then you cut corners at the end if the funds run out.

3. Plan your contractors accordingly to the renovations so that what has been fitted or supplied does not get damaged by the next contractor.

 

One style tip to live by?

Go with what suits you and what you feel comfortable in whether it is clothing or the space you are in.

 

What is your favourite aspect of living in Greyton?

There is no traffic, it is generally quiet and there is a real community feel to the village.

5 Tips for looking after your succulents

2-min read

by Simone Cleary

The Rialheim Pig Bowl in Splatter White styled by Little Succulent Co.

The Rialheim Pig Bowl in Splatter White styled by Little Succulent Co.

Little Succulent Co. started a year ago when my hobby of growing and planting succulents turned in to a small business making succulent arrangements from my home with the help from my three little girls.

Why succulents?

1.) They are super trendy.

2.) They are low maintenance and easy to care for.

3.) They look good all year round.

4.) Whether you are a green thumb or a novice gardener succulents are one of the easiest plants to care for.

5.) There are many different varieties which make for lovely succulent arrangements.

Top tips for looking after your succulents

1.) It is important that Succulents are planted in the correct soil to ensure their survival and healthy growth. The perfect combination of organic soil, pumice and sand making it well draining like Succulents need.

2.) Succulents require lots of drainage as they don’t like too much water or they may rot.

3.) Succulents are easy pleased house guests and survive indoors thanks to their special adaptations; fleshy leaves, thick stems and enlarged roots that allow plants to hoard water.

4.) When it comes to watering ‘Less is always more’. Supply your plant with a generous amount of water once a fortnight. I always recommend to gently touch the soil and if you feel it is dry then it needs a generous shower of water. If it is still moist from it’s last water. Check it again in a couple of days.

5.) Succulents love lots of sunshine to ensure they remain healthy and their colour vibrant. Succulents can be kept indoors but they require a well lit position. It’s encouraged that they are taken outdoors on sunny days.

Bespoke Succulent planters have such impact and wow factor and they make for the perfect centrepiece indoors and outdoors.

A dream worth believing in

It is our unique cultural diversity that enables us, as South Africans, to create magic on the global stage.

The inaugural Themba Gala called on the riches of our unique society by auctioning some of South Africa’s finest art, donated by 24 of our country’s top established and emerging artists. Art has always led society by challenging the status quo, holding up a mirror to current and global affairs. The bravery of this industry always demands attention and introspection. The donation of such work by local artists to Make a Difference Leadership Foundation enables South Africa’s future leaders to follow their dreams in realising a better future, not only for themselves but for their society at large. This makes me incredibly proud to call myself a South African and humbled for Rialheim to have been a part of this fantastic event.

Esteemed artists included Mbongeni Buthelezi, Anton Smit & Jaco Sieberhagen.

When Rialheim was challenged to join the movement to support 1000 leaders through MAD Leadership Foundation we immediately jumped onboard, supporting founder & Chairman Francois Pienaar’s dream to expand the organisation’s reach and impact. At present, MAD Leadership Foundation, together with their corporate and event partners, artists and individual supporters currently fund 220 young leaders at schools and universities in all nine provinces helping them achieve academic and leadership excellence. This fills me with so much excitement for tomorrow, for the future of our great country.

“Just imagine a world where every single person can follow and realise their own dreams. What a wonderful world that can be.” 

The venue was adorned with bespoke Rialheim décor including over 1000 ceramic birds and our Humanity Vase & Industrial Candle Stick in Bronze

I am privileged to live my dream every day and believe it is my basic human right to do so. To live your life, by following your dreams is not without challenges. Therefore, organisations like the MAD Leadership Foundation are vital for our society because they believe in and facilitate these dreams, aspirations and hopes. #DreamBelieveFly afforded Rialheim the opportunity to join the movement of creating 1000 future leaders by co-hosting the inaugural Themba Gala that took place last week and we are extremely proud to have played a role in raising R1.8 million during the event enabling young people to follow their dreams, ensuring that their potential becomes possible.

“This event reminded me that our rich and complex diversity combined with a little magic really can make a difference.”

A woman making a difference. Interview with Helette Pieterse

A woman who believes in the power of hope and the positive change it can bring to our country. We sit down with Helette Pieterse, CEO of MAD Leadership Foundation and chat to her about what motivates and inspires her on her quest to #MakeADifference.

 

Having studied Accounting and then post-graduate studies in Value and Policy Studies and Education Policy Studies, the first part of Helette's career was working in Finance as a Financial Director.

 

"I am a true believer in the power of Education and how it can change the world and I am very fortunate to now have a job where my passion meets my background and experience."

- Helette Pieterse 

 

What made you join MAD Leadership Foundation? 

I realised that I needed to do work that was meaningful to me. As I've said, I'm a true believer in the power of education and how it can change the world. This quote by Nelson Mandela says it so well: “Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation.” Education breaks down walls and opens doors. When I saw this opportunity at MAD Leadership Foundation advertised I knew this could be the meaningful work I wanted to do. What I like about MAD Leadership Foundation is the personal approach to providing comprehensive support to each individual scholar on the programme - it makes a sustainable impact. 

 

What are your dreams for the future of the Organisation? 

I have many dreams and big ones. But the first one to mind is the dream of 1000 leaders on the programme. That is the ambitious goal we set for ourselves - to have 1000 scholars on the programme - can you imagine the impact and ripple effect if we can have 1000 young people with leadership potential have an opportunity to realise their dreams and ambitions without placing the burden of the financial implications of a good education on their families who are already struggling to make ends meet. 

 

What’s the most rewarding part of your job? 

This is a difficult question. There are so many elements to this job that makes it rewarding: the shared joy when we tell an applicant and their family that they will be receiving a scholarship; the interactions with our scholars who have the ability to energise and inspire me; the interactions with our loyal supporters and partners; the synergies we discover with like-minded individuals and companies, like our relationship with Rialheim. All these things give me hope for the future of South Africa and that is rewarding. 

 

And the most difficult? 

Not being able to help every deserving young person who apply to join our scholarship programme. 

 

What advice would you give to your younger self? 

I would borrow this piece of advice from the Greek Philosopher, Epictetus: “The chief task in life is simply this: to identify and separate matters so that I can say clearly to myself which are externals not under my control, and which have to do with the choices I actually control." 

Helette Quote.jpg

Being a woman, how important is it for you to inspire other women in business? 

As a woman, I hope to inspire not only other women in business, but women, and especially young girls in general. It's not always easy, but it really is worthwhile to see the magic that happens when your voice is heard, when your opinion matters and it is acknowledged that a woman's perspective adds value. However, because it's not easy women often forget to acknowledge and support each other. I want young girls to truly believe that they can achieve anything they want to. 

 

What is your advice for success? 

Work hard and dream big. 

 

Who has been your biggest inspiration? 

I have had many people in my life who inspire me, who make me want to do better, to be better. But if I had to single one person out it would be my Mom. She has shown me how to be a strong and independent women, but also she has taught me compassion and empathy and I am truly grateful because this has helped me find my purpose in life.  

 

How has working with Rialheim been? 

It has been inspirational, an absolute pleasure. The thing that makes it special is the intent, values and beliefs of the people of Rialheim. Working with an organisation who also strongly believes that South Africa's future is bright and that we have a responsibility to help build that future is what makes it very special. 

 

What would you like your legacy to be? 

To have paved the way for whoever comes after me to have a strong foundation upon which they can build and improve.  

 

One quote to live by? 

I love words and have many, many quotes I believe is worth taking note of, so this is not a quote, but a motto that drives me - "Privilege entails responsibility." 

 

What more can we expect to see from you? 

I would love to say that you can expect to see me help fundamentally change our education system for the better so that every child in this country has a fair chance in life, but that is my big dream. The only thing I know for certain is that you can always expect to see me work passionately towards making the world a better place.

Styling tips by interior designer, Lauren Egan

Styling’s fun, right! It’s a chance to play around with nice things (my favourite things are ‘nice things’) and put them together to make it look, well, even nicer. I recently got a chance to play around from nice things from Rialheim at Design School at a shoot for The Block Shop. The brief for the shoot was pretty open: have fun and provide images that demonstrate how the products can work together, which gave me and my “Style Buddy” Laura Stanley, pretty much carte blanche on what we’d like to pair together to make styling magic (IMHO).

We immediately gravitated towards the Rialheim Humanity Face Bowl because of its versatility (it’s a plant holder! No wait: it’s a bowl! No wait: it’s a sculpture!) and it had a point of interest in its shape and form, without being that bowl at the party that’s all “Look at me! Look at me!” (those bowls are so irritating, amiright!). We used it predominantly as a planter as it’s hard to not put a plant in a pot that has a face - which if I’m honest – can sometimes look gimmicky, but as this piece is quite elegant it absolutely worked for our left of centre aesthetic.

Look, I don’t want to give the impression that Styling is as simple as ‘pick a bowl, put a plant in it’! What is made to look glamourous through the lens is balanced out by a complete lack of glamour and a good dose of chaos behind the lens. An explosion of bubblewrap, double sided tape stuck to your face, anti-gravity moon walking to avoid tripping on photography cords, and guaranteed everyone’s running around in yoga pants and sneakers. There’s an obsessional amount of tweaking – constantly moving and twisting things by millimetres, adding and removing objects to get the balance just right. But gosh, it’s a good feeling when you get that perfect shot in the bag.

Thanks Rialheim for bringing the ‘nice’ things for us to play with – we’ll be back for more!
