Here is an alternative to the standard burger, the chicken of the sea, Mackerel and a tomato based relish, to smear in the Bap. You can modify the flavour of the burgers by using different types of mackerel, different dressing and garnishes. It all depends on individual tastes.
This recipe is delicious and is really suitable for family and friends alike. I like to just leave all the components of the meal in the middle of the table and allow all of the guests to help themselves and build their own fajita. The stir fry part of this recipe is also suitable for pork, duck or beef.
Boerewors is a traditional South African sausage made from beef or lamb and flavoured with special blends of herbs and spices. I like my boerewors quite spicy with loads of coriander and white pepper. You can make it for the rest of the year using butternut squash instead of Halloween pumpkin
This is one of my favourite recipes- it looks really fun and the flavour combination is really moreish. I have had students get up in the middle of the night to eat the leftovers of this recipe!
My dad, Norman, cooks the best steak ever. Normally on the 'braai' or BBQ, but with his top tips you'll get a great result in a heavy based pan. Fillet may be seen as the most sought after cut of steak, but I prefer rib eye steak any day. It has a great flavour and texture. Also very forgiving of a cook practicing to perfect pan frying steak skills. The creamy mustard sauce is just delish and can be used with chicken or pork instead.
My brother André is the natural gourmand in our family, effortlessly putting ingredients together to create superb meals. After visiting Greece in his early twenties, André came back with a passion for Greek cuisine: rosemary infused lamb, crunchy salads and lots and lots of lemon! As a long distance runner, Greek cuisine is a healthy lifestyle choice. Just not too much baklava and shortbread!
