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!
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.
Rasmalai is one of those desserts that have really stumped me. Finally I think I’ve cracked it!
Panna Cotta – the name says it all! Rich, indulgent and utterly decadent.
There are very few things in the world that soothes the soul. Like sitting by a crackling fire whilst the wind sweeps eerily outside or a steaming bowl of soup that gently warms you from the inside out.
