Aubergine Cheesecake

This Aubergine Cheesecake has to count as one of my finds of the year. I originally made a version of this dish for the Cheese issue of the Sunday Times Food Weekly in April of this year.  The issue coincided with the annual South African Cheese Festival and I loved creating and photographing 6 dishes made with local artisanal cheeses from all over South Africa. The original recipe is from Yotam Ottolenhi’s Plenty More, a beautiful book dedicated to cooking…

Gluten Free Vegetable Pies

These should in all honesty be called “Clean Out the Fridge Pies” but Vegetable Pies sound so much better. And if truth be told they really are just collapsed veggie souffles but so tasty that making them, waiting for them to collapse and packing them for your lunch box or picnic makes perfect sense. After the two weeks of eating like a king while we were shooting in France I am trying to make a concerted effort to eat a…

Homemade Ricotta l heinstirred.com

This post was supposed to be about Lebanon’s most famous salad Tabbouleh. But you needs a lot of flat leaf parsley for it and I have this pet hate for buying herbs from retailers when I know full well I can grow them myself. So the Tabbouleh post has been delayed until I can harvest 300g of parsley. Which brings me to this wonderful homemade ricotta. I saw a photo on the Donna Hay magazine’s Instagram feed of bruschetta with…

Just over a week ago the lovely people at Cobb dropped off their “Kitchen in a Box”  Premier Cooking System. A nifty outdoor cooker that can roast, fry, grill and bake. It even has a roasting rack to roast a chicken! I could not wait to use it and immediately knew what recipe I want to try first. This Naan Breakfast Pizza that crossed my path a while back. Up until now I have just not been able to make a…

I have to admit this post only exists because the first image I saw on the day was of buckwheat pancakes on Instagram. That led to me wanting to just have fun with the camera and shoot my own version. But with honey oozing down the sides. (And I have always wanted to try buckwheat.) I looked at some recipes but none really grabbed me, so decided to adapt the recipe I posted before of Bill Granger’s Banana Sour Cream…

Another name for these Spicy Baked Eggs could easily be Hangover Breakfast. They combine all the elements that I want in a breakfast when the night before might have been too much fun: gluten, fat and spice! And if a breakfast pizza, loaded with cheese, eggs, bacon, sausage and chilli is not in easy reach (why do so few places make breakfast pizzas?), this is a great alternative. And even if the evening before does not need to be medicated…
