‘Chenin is a refreshing varietal that can be made in completely different styles – and it goes really well with summer foods,’ says Spier executive chef Lolli Heyns. Chenin Blanc is also my own personal favourite wine to sip all summer long, and I can’t wait to try it in Lolli’s West Coast mussels in white wine cream sauce this weekend.
If you’re a fan of these baby summer squashes (like we are) then these baby marrow fries are the Friday night treat you’ve been waiting for.
If you are looking for a low-kilojoule meal but could do without a boring salad, step up your game and whip up these simple garlic-chilli prawns instead. It’s the perfect meal to fill you up after a workout.
Say what? Skordalia is a creamy dip of mashed potato, garlic and olive oil, and is a Greek favourite that is often enjoyed with fried fish. Yum, yum!
A true vegetarian feast that will have your mouth watering and you begging for more. These black bean tacos are perfectly spiced and they boast plenty of freshness with yummy greens, plus a garlic aioli to add some creaminess.
It’s that time of year again where we all need to give our immune systems a boost. And this healthy wholesome meal will certainly do the trick, and it’s absolutely delicious. If you are looking for a more budget-friendly option, feel free to swap the prawns for shrimp, or use beans as a vegetarian option.
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.
Being a WWF-SASSI ambassador and forager, I love the ocean and cooking with the fresh ingredients found on my doorstep in Grotto Bay. This is one of the signature dishes that started my career with the Ultimate Braai Master back in 2014. I have a few mussel recipes, but nothing beats this or tastes as true to the ocean as this one. It’s the greatest WWF-SASSI recipe ever!
