Michelle’s philosophy of regional, sustainable cooking sprang from a traditional South African home, where a luscious garden offered loads of home-grown produce and mealtimes were taken seriously. She studied culinary arts and then worked at several restaurants in and around Cape Town, before joining the team at Pierneef à La Motte in 2010. She helped them make the top 10 in the 2013 Eat Out DStv Food Network Awards, becoming the executive chef in 2014. She showed us how to whip up her spectacular grilled kingklip (back on the green list by the way!) with white chocolate Béarnaise.
How gorgeous is this Greek whole baked fish? And you won’t believe how easy it is to make at home. So if you are having family and friends over and you guys are missing those summery fish braais, here’s your solution.
It may look like a simple dish, and it will only take you 20 minutes to whip together, but the flavour combinations of this recipe are not only perfectly balanced, but complex as well. With an allium flavour from the onion and garlic, the tang of the tomatoes and capers, not to mention a bit of bite from the chilli, our spicy calamari pasta is one dish you’ll go back to over and over.
