Lamb with Pistachio Pesto

Lamb with potatoes and pesto

On Saturday evenings after the rugby my dad will put a whole rack of lamb ribs into the oven and we would have that with pap. Nowadays I like to keep things a little more healthy and cook French-trimmed lamb ribs with a bit of potatoes and an awesome pistachio pesto.

Einkorn Bread

Sliced Einkorn bread

I love receiving edible gifts, especially those that are unusual. My friend B gave me a pack of Einkorn Flour a couple of months ago. I’ve been totally intrigued by it and couldn’t wait to try it out.

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

I am totally in love with Italy and all things Italian, especially the food culture and Mediterranean flavours.

A Simple Beetroot Salad with Goat’s Cheese

Beetroot and goat cheese salad

Ever since I can remember my mum would always ensure that, when in season, we have beetroot salad on the table.

Avocado Jelly Salad

A box of Fuerte Avocados

When I grew up, the family would gather on a Sunday for lunch. Everyone will be responsible for bringing one salad and one meat dish so it almost always resulted in someone bringing some form of jelly salad. My most favourite one is the Avocado Jelly Salad.

Moroccan-style Chicken with Bulgar Wheat

I can still remember the first time I had Moroccan food. I was in South Kensington with my cousin. I cannot remember what I had that night, but I do remember coming home and thinking: ‘wow! that was bloody fantastic!’

Pea and Mint Risotto

Pea and Mint risotto with parmesan

Pea and Mint is a wonderful summer combination. Along with a squeeze of lime, it really makes this risotto come alive.

Pasta Salad with Avocado

Bacon and Avocado Pasta

In South Africa we bought avocados by the case. It is for that reason that I love making this recipe.

Quail Scotch Eggs

Quail's Scotch Egg

I cannot stand an over-boiled egg! The moment you bite into a blue-boiled egg the struggle begins…

Homemade curries just fill the house with an amazing aroma.
