Orange Polenta Cake

I was recently invited to lunch at Tokara in Stellenbosch and had the opportunity to enjoy an olive oil tasting followed by a tasty lunch in the deli. The dessert was just incredible, a Orange Polenta Cake served with Orange Ice Cream, Orange Crème and Candied Oranges and as we were lucky enough to get the recipe afterwards, it was a given that I was going to make it and share on here. Tokara offers some of the most incredible…

Pears Roasted in Cider

The autumn issue of the Donna Hay magazine had some wonderful pear recipes in it and since we are in the same season as the Australians it made sense to try her recipe for Verjuice, Thyme and Cinnamon Roasted pears. From which I deviated quite a bit and ended with this recipe for Pears Roasted in Cider. (And from the images you can see I added some apples as well.) I did not have any verjuice and never have for…

Muesli Buttermilk Rusks

There was no way I was not going to bake Tannie Maria’s Muesli Buttermilk Rusks. After all, they are one of the main characters in the wonderful murder mystery by Sally Andrew called Recipes for Love and Murder. The story is set in the Klein Karoo, an area about 2 hours outside of Cape Town and tells the story of  Tannie Maria, “a fifty-something, short and soft (perhaps a bit too soft in the wrong places)” who gets involved in a…

Turmeric Latte Ice Cream

And ever since tasting the Turmeric Latte Ice Cream at Unframed on Kloof Street I have been wanting to make my own version of Turmeric Latte Ice Cream. It is deliciously spicy with that warm turmeric flavour and the colour is pretty fantastic. And I thought the ice cream would go really well with that classic South African dessert, the super…

Roasted Butternut with Miso and Garlic

This recipe for Roasted Butternut with Miso and Garlic is based on a recipe from Sylvia Fountain that she published on her fabulous Feasting at Home blog. I originally saw the recipe on Pinterest and had “filed” it in my seemingly neverending bookmarked list of recipes to try. I have tried some of her recipes before, like this Best Peri Peri Chicken Ever and I think is one of the most delicious chicken recipes I have published to date. The Roasted Butternut…

Fried Aubergine with Goat's Cheese

I have been an Instagram fan of Chef Loyiso Mthoba for a while now and I decided that before he gets too famous I will ask him if he would like to prepare a recipe for the blog. He immediately agreed and we got together a week ago to make his delicious Fried Aubergine with Goat’s Cheese recipe. The 23 year old Chef Loyiso is a commis chef at Reuben’s at the The One & Only Cape Town where and…
