Where do you go for cut-price designer labels, that must-have little black dress, or a unique ensemble for an exclusive evening out? Where can you take your children so they'll be entertained and safe while you can relax? And what actually are 44 Stanley, Arts on Main, and Gramadoelas? How do you fool your mother-in-law with a delicious home-made - read: catered - lasagne served in the dish she gave you (because what working girl has time to cook a gourmet meal during the week)? Who should you trust for that fantastic facial or perfect pedi? Are you looking for somewhere to sip exotic sundowners while the sun sets on the Jozi skyline, or the trendiest hangouts for a Saturday night on the town? How about where to find the juiciest cut of steak or the freshest fish in this landlocked city, organic veggies, freshly ground coffee beans, and still-warm, flour-dusted ciabatta? And if it's the most decadent Belgian chocolate cake that you're after to share with your girlfriends or a melt-in-the-mouth cheesecake, you'll find all this and much, much more in Chic Jozi: The Savvy Style Companion.
From restaurants, bargain-hunting, landscape gardening and urban chilling, to club-hopping, museums, markets and vintage stores; from spas, the best boutiques, and local designers, to going green with organic products, kids' courses, yoga and meditation: this is your one stop, utterly essential guide on how to have a good time in Joburg.

About Nikki Temkin

Nikki Temkin barely passed home economics at school but excelled at creative writing, which set the tone for her future as a young woman determined to become a paid writer and a better cook. Her colourful career has included a stint as an advertising copywriter, a TV producer/screenwriter, website editor and various other jobs in the media industry. Over the last eight years she has written prolifically for magazines and newspapers; her longest gig was with Sunday Times Magazine as TV columnist, critic and features writer. Other than living in the UK while completing her Master's degree in screenwriting in 1997, Nikki has always lived in Johannesburg, through each of this exciting city's incarnations. Chic Jozi is the culmination of many hours of eating, shopping, browsing, partying and meandering, and is a fully updated new edition of the original book.
