Duck Legs with Roasted Plums and Sumac

Throughout the lockdown I have been trying to use ingredients that I won’t normally have the courage to cook with. These duck legs were delicious and will quickly become a regular on our dinner table.

Traditional South African Vetkoek

Friday nights are Vetkoek nights. Delectable little rounds of bread dough deep fried until golden on the outside and fluffy and soft on the inside… Perfect for a rainy Friday evening where you just want to have comfort food and a shiny face!

Biltong-Inspired Beef Burgers

One of the most recognised South African foods is biltong. No matter where in the world you may go, there is always one person that is familiar with the meaty beef sticks that is so popular to the good people of South Africa.

Instant Pot Oxtail Stew

Instant Pot Oxtail Stew

When I hear the word Oxtail I can not only taste the smush of the baby carrots and the crack of the new potatoes’ skin when you push down with your fork, but I can also smell the richness of the aroma that fills the kitchen.

Not so authentic Rasmalai

Homemade Yogurt

Homemade yogurt

Ever since I could remember I dreamt of making my own yogurt and when I saw Instant Pot had a function to make yogurt, I was totally set on buying one of these miracle pots. I therefore was totally over the moon when my hubby surprised me with a Instant Pot!

Instant Pot Lamb Shank with Feta and Olives

Minty Yogurt and Feta Dip

Two pots of yogurt dip

A couple of nights ago I’ve made a Lamb Shank with Feta and Olives. I wanted to add a bit of luxurious creaminess to the dish so I made this dip as a side to the gorgeous lamb!
