Roasted Butternut Squash Falafel

I absolutely love falafel. Made with chickpeas or lentils (as they make at Nooka in Roeland Street) or a mixture of both. And now I love them made with butternut squash. I have made these Roasted Butternut Squash Falafel on a few occasions now and everyone loves them. I originally saw the beautiful photo of Food and Travel Magazine’s Butternut Squash and Feta Falafel on Pinterest and it immediately when to the top of my “must make for the blog” list…

Peri Peri Chicken

I have posted this recipe for Peri Peri Chicken before – back in March 2014 – but after making the recipe part of a chicken feature for the Sunday Times Food Weekly recently, I wanted to share it again with updated photos and because it is so incredibly delicious.

I think soaking the shredded chicken in the salad dressing amplifies the flavour just that much more rather than adding…

Nadia loves to work with fruit in savoury dishes and after photographing her Grilled Mango with blueberries and Danish Feta Salad I asked for another recipe I could make for the blog.   Overlooking beautiful mountains and a large pond dotted with ducks the bistro is bright and airy…

Monkey Gland Rump Kebabs

One of my favourite Sunday Times features to create was the Heritage Day one which featured this recipe for Monkey Gland Rump Kebabs and it has finally made it to the blog. When I was given the task to create 5 recipes to celebrate the public holiday also known as Braai Day (Barbecue Day) I set out to give the South African braai a new look while referencing the classics that form the basis of a braai. I marinated chicken…
