  This is without a doubt my dish of the summer and I will be serving it over and over again. The charred smokiness of the courgette and toasted bread blends wonderfully with the garlicky creaminess of the ricotta tzatziki  plus hits of added freshness coming from the mint. It is just perfect served with a cocktail, will add a beautiful freshness to a platter of antipasti or a colourful start to an al fresco summer lunch. The original recipe…

There was no way I was going to decline an invitation from Nina Timm from My Easy Cooking to spend the morning in her kitchen! I am a huge fan of Nina’s work on her blog  My Easy Cooking and her fuss free way of doing things. And needless to say it was such a delight to meet her in person and I would have happily stayed the whole day cooking and talking food. Coincidently just this week Nina’s divine Mushroom Tarts was the inspiration for…

The best soup I ever had was at Via’s in Greyton. It was unpretentious, delicious, made from broccoli picked that very morning and served in a small cup as an appetiser.

Leave out the meat…

No braai is complete without a bowl of potato salad and everyone has their favourite way of making this dish. For me it has to be a thick garlic and grated onion mayonnaise dressing with some chopped boiled egg or the warm German version with a tangy vinegar dressing dotted with crispy bacon and chopped parsley.

Growing up there were 3 things I looked forward to when there was a braai (barbecue): garlic bread, potato salad and my mom’s “heerlike poeding” (literally translated as delicious pudding) which has to be as South African as a braai. The best bit was a sneaky Sunday morning breakfast of cold garlic bread topped with potato salad followed by a heaped spoon of poeding scooped out of the fridge before my mom noticed. She always made garlic bread with some added…
