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…

These Roasted Aubergine Tortillas is another one of those little work for maximum flavour dishes I just love. Bonus is that there are a whole lot of my favourites in this dish making it a superb “vegetarian dude food” meal in my book.

The original recipe is from Yotam Ottolenhi’s Plenty More, a beautiful book dedicated to cooking…

Roasted Aubergine

This Roasted Aubergine recipe has to be one of the best ways to serve aubergine and is inspired by an Ottolenghi recipe I came across recently. I am buying less and less recipe books as it feels that the market is saturated with books and I find following and interacting with my favourite bloggers for inspiration to be much more satisfying. So in saying so I have been slow to the Ottolenghi fan club. My trip to Beirut has had…
