Mocha and Raspberry Millefeuille

This Mocha Raspberry Millefeuille is a recipe worth keeping at hand as the holiday season inches closer. Visually so impressive and guaranteed to elicit a few wows from your family and guests but not complicated to make at all. A treat that tastes delicious, looks amazing and is not that hard work is always a winner in my book.   I came across the recipe on Pinterest as a pin from Gourmet Traveller Australia. It was one of those photos of…

Spiced Dulce de Leche

No matter how convenient convenience might be, few things can beat homemade. This Spiced Dulce de Leche is just one of those little work, high reward homemade dishes. But be warned. It is utterly delicious and addictive. Made from a tin of condensed milk, it is slowly heated and as it cooks it changes flavour and colour. It is very popular in Latin America and the French also have a version, called Confiture de Lait. Here in South Africa we…

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.

This is also a man who always makes his own puff pastry so I am usually in awe of what he creates in his kitchen without even breaking a sweat. His inspiration for the tart comes…

They grow a fantastic range of mushrooms which includes Shiitake, King Oyster, Oyster, Enoki, Shimeji and porcini Mushrooms. And with the exceptional quality, deciding how to prepare them becomes quite difficult as there are just too many ways to enjoy them. I finally decided to go completely vegetarian and made…

One of my favourite food blogs is Hortus Cuisine. I love the design of the blog and Valentina’s photography is incredible. There is an ethereal quality to her work which has me mesmerized whenever I look at it. A few weeks back she posted a recipe for Moufflèes – Egg Muffins which was the inspiration for this recipe. And as my foodie luck would have it, it was the 2014 Food Blogger Indaba a few weeks ago and in the…
