Ginger beer braised pork belly with crunchy crackl...

I don’t often cook Pork but this recipe is so easy and so tasty I made it twice last week to feed the masses. If you need something that doesn’t use a lot of pots and have no time to spend in the kitchen then this is the one for you. The whole preparation takes less than 5 minutes and then you forget about it for 3-4 hours. A lot of the fat dissolves when cooking, I was amazed at how little was left. This will feed...

Slow-Cooked Beef Short Ribs...

Beef short ribs are the ideal replacement for lamb shanks. Not only are they so tasty they are also quite affordable. Don’t be put off by the sinew and fat in the cut; they disappear when cooked in the wine and stock. The end result being a tender mouth watering dish that your friends and family will be talking about for a long time. What you need Olive oil 6 Thick cut short ribs (1.2 – 1.5 kg) 1 Large head of...

Mushroom and cheese sauce...

This is one of my favourite recipes for the simple fact that it tastes really yummy and it takes no less than 10 minutes to make.    As working woman we don’t always have much time to prepare big gourmet meals for our families.  With this recipe you can put a scrumptious meal together for your family in no time.  My son usually leaves his meat and only eats this sauce and chips.  This I discovered was his version...

Chicken Leek and Ham pie...

Chicken and Ham pie with Leeks I made these pies along with the Greek Lamb shanks and Lemon Flans for a dinner party of 23 people the other night and it went down a real treat. You can prepare the filling the night before and then just cover with the pastry and pop it in the oven half an hour before serving. It is a very simple recipe and seriously delicious.  Make a large pie or separate into 4 smaller pies, it works...

Christmas recipes...

Christmas I have had so many requests for Christmas recipes again this year that I thought I would re-post the whole lot in one entry. Some of my best memories are around the table at Christmas time with the table groaning under all the delicious things to eat. It is so worth taking the time and putting in the extra effort to make Christmas dinner or lunch something really extraordinary, it is something that you and all...

Black Cherry Tiramisu...

Black Cherry Tiramisu This is a non alcoholic Tiramisu that worked so well the friends and family were groaning at the table, taking “just one more little piece”. It really is very simple and the only thing you need to be a little careful with is not turning the egg yolks into scrambled eggs but I have a fool proof method for that which will make sure your Black Cherry Tiramisu is perfect every time. You wil;l...

Brinjal Curry...

Brinjal Curry This one is really fantastic if you have vegetarian friends that your meat eating mates will also love. It is very tasty, does not take much effort apart from making sure you give it a stir every now and then so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Next time I make it I will also add 2 medium diced potatoes and a little extra water just to add another texture and make it go further. I had 9 people...

Lovers Shortbread...

Lovers Shortbread This has got to be the simplest shortbread recipe I have ever had the pleasure of making. It takes all of 10 minutes to prepare and another 30 minutes until you can eat your heart out, they taste fantastic and freeze extremely well, what more could you ask for?  I am told these are a Lebanese shortbread, not sure where the Lovers shortbread comes from Folks, you really must make a batch of these,...

Smoked Trout pate...

Smoke Trout Pate Any trip to Dullstroom has got to include trout and along with the corn bread muffins there will always be some smoked trout pate and this recipe is also from the book “savour” which I changed slightly. It is rediculously simple and Oh so very tasty. We smoke our own trout but store bought smoked trout is just as good. I must say, cooking trout whole has never been my favourite and the bones...

Corn Bread Muffins...

Corn Bread Muffins I was lucky enough to be given a fantastic recipe book called “savour” by some great friends, thank you Chris and Natheera. A bunch of us are off to Dullstroom for the weekend and what would a trip trout fishing be without something delicious to pop into your bag or pocket while out on the water so I tested a few recipes from the book and this corn bread recipe is awesome. I made them as...

Potato and Mushroom Bake...

Potato Bake with mushrooms There are few dishes that give you that home comfort feeling like a great potato bake and this one, which I recently served with a Prime Rib Roast and Melanzanewas such a huge hit I am being forced to make it again… very soon Just gotta love it when people enjoy your food! (makes enough for 6 people) Use an ove dish that is about 30cmx20cmx8cm high or similar The three dishes for the...
