Dutch Baby

A Dutch Baby is not Dutch and neither is it a baby. Derived from the German Pfannkuchen, it is a large puffy pancake fit for a celebratory breakfast with minimal fuss or to make an ordinary midweek meal all the more special with a delicious dessert. You make a thin pancake batter, pour it into a blazing hot cast iron pan and place it in a hot oven. The batter puffs up around the edges and rises higher and higher…

Fried Eggs in Garlicky Yogurt

Fried eggs in Garlicky Yoghurt with Feta Cheese is now the only way I want to eat eggs. It is so simple yet delicious and I do urge you try it even if it does sound like a strange combination. I love the play of the cold of the yoghurt with the heat of the fried eggs, the warmth of the paprika and the saltiness of the feta cheese. Add to that the chewy texture of a slice of sourdough…

Sumac Roasted Tomatoes and Lentils, Dukkah Crusted Eggs

If there ever was a recipe on this blog that exemplifies comfort food then it’s this bowl of Sumac Roast Tomatoes, Lentils and Dukkah Crusted Eggs. A bowl of simple ingredients with splashes of the exotic that envelopes you with the comfort and warmth of what must be the equivalent of a foodie hug. What made the dish even more special to me on a Saturday afternoon when I was in need of any kind of hug, were the ingredients I…

And if truth be told they really are just collapsed veggie souffles but so tasty that making them, waiting for them to collapse and packing them for your lunch box or picnic makes perfect sense. After the two weeks of eating like a king while we were shooting in France I am trying to make a concerted effort to eat a…

Another name for these Spicy Baked Eggs could easily be Hangover Breakfast. They combine all the elements that I want in a breakfast when the night before might have been too much fun: gluten, fat and spice! And if a breakfast pizza, loaded with cheese, eggs, bacon, sausage and chilli is not in easy reach (why do so few places make breakfast pizzas?), this is a great alternative. And even if the evening before does not need to be medicated…

One of my favourite food blogs is Hortus Cuisine. I love the design of the blog and Valentina’s photography is incredible. There is an ethereal quality to her work which has me mesmerized whenever I look at it. A few weeks back she posted a recipe for Moufflèes – Egg Muffins which was the inspiration for this recipe. And as my foodie luck would have it, it was the 2014 Food Blogger Indaba a few weeks ago and in the…
