Gourmet S'mores

I love tasting menus. Purely for the fact that you know there will be more than one dessert. Two minimum. Three if you are lucky. These gourmet s’mores consist of home baked graham crackers (we know them as digestive biscuits in SA), topped with a dollop of chocolate ganache and whipped marshmallow topping. The idea comes from a superb lunch at Amass in Copenhagen a few months back. Amass is situated at the end of the Copenhagen harbour (you reach it by…

Malva Pudding

The internet definitely does not need another Malva Pudding recipe but this is an idea I have been wanting to try for a while after getting my hands on some white miso. I did a quick survey the other day for a recipe feature about classic South African desserts and across all cultures Malva Pudding was the one mentioned the most. Quite surprising as it is such a simple baked pudding but I think because it is that one dessert we…

Baked Lemon Pudding with Lime Yoghurt

A baked lemon pudding is a baked lemon pudding.  Until you have a Baked Lemon Pudding with Lime Yoghurt. Double the citrus, double the zest and double the lip puckering deliciousness. It’s been a while I have made a Bill Granger recipe and this lemon pudding is from his book Bill’s Open Kitchen. I have been an ardent follower of his and have most of his books, cooking and baking from them regularly as well as looking at his work for…

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…

Turmeric Latte Ice Cream

I find it hard to resist fresh turmeric and I am so happy it is more readily available these days. 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…

Gateau Invisible

I first came across photos of the Gateau Invisible (Invisible Cake) on Federica Di Marcello’s beautiful Instagram account and immediately asked her if she had a recipe for it. She directed me to her blog and after a quick google translate I had a recipe for the apple cake and could go ahead and bake it. The cake is clearly not invisible but rather refers to the all the layers of fruit with hardly any cake batter holding it all…
