When in Paarl ..... The Goatshed at Fairview

Usually, pregnant women are advised to avoid soft cheeses. (Just in case you were wondering why: the moisture they contain can be the ideal environment for the listeria bacteria, which are normally not dangerous to the mom but can be life threatening to the baby.)

After that depressing lesson, let me tell you that staying without the good stuff makes for a very long nine months. On a much more positive note, what a better way than to “get back on the horse” than having one of Fairview’s famous cheese platters at their restaurant, the Goatshed. They offer 25 different cheeses, made from both cow’s and goat’s milk. It is served with an array of fresh breads, baked daily on the premises. Add a glass of their Goats-do-roam wine and the miserable weather outside turns from an enemy to be faced into an ally who co-conspired to give us an excuse to have an amazing lunch!
