Parsnip, Potato and Leek Gratin

This is special occasion food. In this Parsnip, Potato and Leek Gratin, humble root vegetables are baked in loads of cream with garlic and gruyere cheese to end up as a luxurious dish fit for kings and everyone else. Parsnips have never been high on my list of veggies but I found a beautiful bunch at the OZCF market a few Saturday mornings back, photographed them (of course) and then searched around for a recipe I could use. One of…

Macaroni and Cheese Cake

This Macaroni and Cheese Cake is one of the two recipes I made for the kykNET program Kook en Geniet that will be broadcast this Wednesday evening at 8pm. Kook en Geniet is probably South Africa’s most iconic cookbook, first published in 1951 and has sold more than one million copies since then. kykNET commissioned a show looking at how the book has influenced and still influence people from various fields of the food world.

The brief was to create a seasonal, vegetarian and organic family meal using only fresh organic produce and pantry products from the Faithful to Nature online store.

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I have mentioned before that quinoa is not one of my most favourite ingredients but when I saw the recipe on What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today for this Quinoa Breakfast Bowl I was so intrigued that I had to make it and try it out. And I was pleasantly surprised. I think using quinoa as a breakfast “cereal” really works. But then I don’t eat breakfast anymore so this was more of a sweetish late lunch for me. I…
