We’re bringing together two of our favourite local street foods: fish and chips and the mighty gatsby! Grab the ingredients on your way home, because there’s nothing like our calamari and chips gatsby after a long week.
Stuffed mushrooms are the way to go when you have people over. Add a good cheese and some spinach to balance it all out, and you have a winner on your hands. We recommend popping our stuffed portobello mushrooms on the braai right before serving to give them a delicious smoky flavour.
We couldn’t be happier that this wonder fruit is finally back in season. Incorporate it into your dinner by making this lovely watermelon salad. The chicken and couscous will bulk it up, helping you feel full.
Did you know that butter beans are a low-density energy food? This means that they have a low-calorie count relative to their serving size! Add more of them to your diet to help you maintain a healthy weight. We love serving our butter bean and sweet potato pot with couscous or quinoa. Yum!
We’re bringing you another one of our gorgeously gourmet dogs. Light up the braai and whip up these French cheese and onion hot dogs to end the weekend on a good note.
As South Africans, we love vetkoek. And we love to put grilled banana on everything. We bring you the best of both worlds this weekend. Indulge in our caramelised banana vetkoek for dessert. Or, you know, just because.
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.
Give your guests a bar snack they can get excited about this holiday season. These little baby pizzettes should do the trick. Feel free to add your own favourite toppings and set out a variety of options to suit everyone’s tastes.
Have you always wanted to learn to make your own restaurant-style stuffed chicken breasts? We’re making it easy for you by keeping it simple and using seasonal, budget-friendly ingredients only.
Do you love cooking with this gem as much as we do? Good! There’s nothing wrong with having pizza for dinner on a Monday night, especially when it’s our vegetarian butternut pizza.
