APPLE CIDER VINEGAR and DIETING – what’s it all about?

​I think if you ask most people who know me, they would concur that I can be passionate / borderline geek / bore about what I do – usually it involves apples in one form or another. Fortunately, just enough of the passion seems to seep through to prevent narcolepsy within my audience, or a charge for the nearest exit.

I’ve been to Cape Town a few times, and at the risk of sounding a little blasé and spoilt, it was always just fine, ok.
