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…

These pancakes are the perfect alternative to wraps and pita breads. They are light and buttery but strong enough to hold quite a bit of filling. The filling options are really endless – whatever you would have in a pita or wrap would work. I love serving them with my Slow Roasted Pork and these insanely easy and quick Cucumber Pickles. The combination is perfect for when you are serving many people and want a casual affair. Everyone helps themselves to make their…

These are my go to pickles when there are no “proper” pickles in the fridge. A few minutes to make and ready to eat in two hours. The longer the cucumber stays in the liquid the more crunch it will lose so these are best eaten within a day or two. They are the best accompaniment to some meat from the braai, on top of a toasted cheese sandwich or burger or served as a tangy addition to a wrap…

On the last look I decided to try and make something interesting as camouflaging it in a salad does not work. I devised these fritters and they are really tasty. I decided to go the…

If you serve it hot, some toast with garlic butter will be great. Cold, I think some melba toast with a dollop of cream cheese sprinkled with chives will be just perfect.   Print Yum Balsamic Roasted Beetroot Soup Ingredients1…

Of all my (many) favourite things to eat, delicate and beautiful zucchini flowers are very high on the list. Eating them takes me back to Rome immediately and somehow soothes my seemingly daily longing for Italy. We still have quite a bit of time before it is summer in the southern hemisphere but when I saw a tweet from Ethical Co-op that they had the flowers on the delivery list for the week I had to order some. I immediately…
