Ukrainian Garlic Bread

My current favourite recipe book is Mamushka by Olia Hercules. A friend told me a while back how interesting and delicious Ukrainian cuisine was and when I read about the book on Twitter towards the end of last year, I immediately ordered a copy. The cuisine is something that is totally foreign to me and I have loved reading about the food and the traditions Olia recalls. I have been itching to bake some of the fantastic breads in the book…

Pea Hummus l heinstirred.com

Summer eating has to be easy, colourful and with as little fuss as possible. And as much as the eating must be so must the cooking. And I think this Pea Hummus fits the bill perfectly.

(We do get bombarded with messages about what is good for us only to be told what was good last year is now not so lets see what the experts say next year about coconut.) The one thing I…

The charred smokiness of the courgette and toasted bread blends wonderfully with the garlicky creaminess of the ricotta tzatziki  plus hits of added freshness coming from the mint. It is just perfect served with a cocktail, will add a beautiful freshness to a platter of antipasti or a colourful start to an al fresco summer lunch. The original recipe…

Growing up there were 3 things I looked forward to when there was a braai (barbecue): garlic bread, potato salad and my mom’s “heerlike poeding” (literally translated as delicious pudding) which has to be as South African as a braai. The best bit was a sneaky Sunday morning breakfast of cold garlic bread topped with potato salad followed by a heaped spoon of poeding scooped out of the fridge before my mom noticed. She always made garlic bread with some added…
