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…

Roasted Romanesco and Cauliflower Pasta

As with the Zucchini and Ricotta Bake I am keeping it vegetarian (and vegan for that matter) with this recipe for Roasted Romanesco and Cauliflower Pasta. Easy midweek cooking meets Meat Free Mondays in a delicious and nutritious way. Romanesco broccoli also knows as Roman Cauliflower is such a beautiful vegetable, almost too pretty to eat and at the same time a bit intimidating as to how to cook it. You prepare it similarly as you would cauliflower or broccoli by…

Baby Marrow and Ricotta Bake

I don’t think it can get any quicker and easier than this Baby Marrow and Ricotta Bake. In fact, it hardly requires much of a recipe. Simple, yet fresh and delicious ingredients layered, seasoned and baked to make a satisfying side dish or vegetarian main with some steamed couscous or bulgur. All you need to do is slice some large baby marrows (also known as courgettes or zucchini), season them well and drizzle with some good extra virgin olive oil…

Cider Cooked Apple, Onion and Cheddar Galette

I was inspired to cook with cider again after the Pears Roasted in Cider recipe and I think this Cider Cooked Apple, Onion and Cheddar Galette is a worthy follow up recipe. It is on the rich side but so delicious and could be a stunning dish to kick off a dinner party. Or as a lunch served with a crisp salad to offset the richness as suggested by Delicious Magazine where I saw the recipe originally. The pastry of…

Roasted Butternut with Miso and Garlic

This recipe for Roasted Butternut with Miso and Garlic is based on a recipe from Sylvia Fountain that she published on her fabulous Feasting at Home blog. I originally saw the recipe on Pinterest and had “filed” it in my seemingly neverending bookmarked list of recipes to try. I have tried some of her recipes before, like this Best Peri Peri Chicken Ever and I think is one of the most delicious chicken recipes I have published to date. The Roasted Butternut…

Fried Aubergine with Goat's Cheese

I have been an Instagram fan of Chef Loyiso Mthoba for a while now and I decided that before he gets too famous I will ask him if he would like to prepare a recipe for the blog. He immediately agreed and we got together a week ago to make his delicious Fried Aubergine with Goat’s Cheese recipe. The 23 year old Chef Loyiso is a commis chef at Reuben’s at the The One & Only Cape Town where and…
