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...

Roast Prime Rib on the bone...

Prime Rib on the Bone I have recently moved into a new place and had a few friends over for dinner so decided a good roast was in order and what surprised me was the price of prime rib on the bone at under R60/kg. I used 1.8kg which was plenty for the 5 of us and it was so incredibly tasty it is something I will be doing over and again. (for 4-6 people) Anyway, the dinner was a real hit, Prime rib roast, melanzane (they...

Melanzane alla Parmigiana...

Melanzane This has been such a hit amongst my friends that I just had to feature it again. I served it with a Prime Rib Roast and potato bake with mushrooms – all in all a huge success. I had the most incredible Melanzane at Fournos in Benmore the other day that was everything a Melanzane should be, Creamy eggplant layered with tomato and topped off with a nice crust of Parmesan. It was so delicious I had to go...

Mediterranean Pork and Chorico dinner...

Delicious Spicy Pork with Chorico This Mediterranean style stew was really fantastic and you could use any spicy sausage if you don’t have chorico, even a good pork sausage would do the trick, just add a little paprika into the mix. It has plenty of sauce and the crushed grilled potatoes are the perfect  side dish to pick up the sauce. Really, if you like pork and a bit of spice in your food, you are going to love...

Grandma’s Perfect Buttermilk Scones...

Buttermilk Scones Forget every scone recipe you’ve ever read. This is the only one you’ll need! (Makes 12 – 15 scones) Recipe by Rozanne. When these came out of the oven I left my office and drove over to try them. It was worth every second in the traffic. They truly are fantastic, this is one of those recipes your children will be asking you to leave them in your will! What you need 4 x 250ml cake...
