Gourmet Stuffed Braai Loaf

All the banters and paleos and gluten frees and carb fiends should look away because this Gourmet Stuff Braai Loaf is fantastic! Freshly baked home made bread stuffed with caramelised onions, roasted tomatoes, some grilled peppers and two cheeses. A winner in my book and perfect for these summer days filled with barbecues and outdoor eating next to the pool that is lying ahead. The original idea when chatting to my friend Conrad was to bake a focaccia, slice it…

Fried Risotto Balls

Another frying recipe but I realised during the week that I never shared this particular recipe on the blog after they appeared in the Sunday Times Cheese Issue and these Fried Risotto Balls are too good not to share. Spring has definitely arrived in Cape Town (although this morning winter is certainly back) but this recipe is comfort food at its best. And such a great way to use up any left-over bolognaise sauce you might have. You could replace the meat…

Aubergine Cheesecake

This Aubergine Cheesecake has to count as one of my finds of the year. I originally made a version of this dish for the Cheese issue of the Sunday Times Food Weekly in April of this year.  The issue coincided with the annual South African Cheese Festival and I loved creating and photographing 6 dishes made with local artisanal cheeses from all over South Africa. The original recipe is from Yotam Ottolenhi’s Plenty More, a beautiful book dedicated to cooking…

Homemade Ricotta l heinstirred.com

This post was supposed to be about Lebanon’s most famous salad Tabbouleh. But you needs a lot of flat leaf parsley for it and I have this pet hate for buying herbs from retailers when I know full well I can grow them myself. So the Tabbouleh post has been delayed until I can harvest 300g of parsley. Which brings me to this wonderful homemade ricotta. I saw a photo on the Donna Hay magazine’s Instagram feed of bruschetta with…

If there is one vegetable having a revival of sorts it is cauliflower. Gone are the days of being boiled to a watery mush and then topped with a floury cheese sauce. It must be related to all the no-carb diet trends out there and I am certainly not complaining. Today cauliflower “couscous” recipes abound, cauliflower puree appears on many fine restaurant menus and one of my favourite local restaurants, Hemelhuijs, roasts a whole head of cauliflower and serve it…

Quinoa Risotto

I think it is a bit ironic that the most popular recipe and photos on the blog is also my least favourite ingredient. I have said before that I do think the only thing interesting about quinoa is the spelling but I find myself time and again trying to make some flavourful dish with it. These Quinoa Fritters with Avo Salsa were definitely a successful attempt and remains a very popular recipe. I have been playing with the idea of doing…
