Pissaladière

Pissaladière is a classic French dish that originated in Nice in the South of France. It is a tart similar to a pizza but the crust is thicker. It is traditionally topped with caramelised onions, olives and anchovies and I have kept to that tradition. You can serve it as an appetiser and I think it is a great dish to serve as a snack to nibble on with drinks.Even if you do not like olives or anchovies. And those…

After a bit of a search I came across the recipe for the tart from the book Fermented by Charlotte Pike. This tart…

Vegan Kale and Coconut Soup

And it worked a charm and perfect timing while we are in the middle of Cape Town winter. I packed the soup with as many healthy ingredients as I could: beautiful Kale, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Garlic, fresh Ginger and Turmeric. All those ingredients are filled with nutritional values that are through the…

Kale Chips

I have been a recent convert to kale. And partly because it has not been as regularly available in South Africa as it is now and it has also veered on the far too healthy scale of the food spectrum for me. But I have been cooking with it quite a bit and was pleasantly surprised with these Kale Chips. Kale is often referred to as the Queen of Greens. A member of the Brassical family (cabbage, broccoli etc), the…
