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.
Ever since I can remember my mum would always ensure that, when in season, we have beetroot salad on the table.
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.
In South Africa we bought avocados by the case. It is for that reason that I love making this recipe.
Growing up my mother always woke up super early. Even on a Saturday. Some Saturdays we were lucky enough to be spoilt with these little sweetcorn fritters for breakfast. Mieliekoekies!
When I was little my mum always made a massive spread for my birthday each year. One of my favourites was Peppermint Crisp tart.
There are a few staples that you will always find at a South African braai: pap, sous, greek salad, garlic bread and potato salad. This is my ultimate potato salad recipe.
My sister-in-law’s sweet potato bake hits just the right spot!
I love the rain. When it rains in South Africa we eat pancakes. I love pancakes. This year I’ve incorporated traditions from both sides of the equator.
Oh no! I cannot believe it is nearly February. Nearly a twelfth into the New Year and I’m still in the Christmas spirit!
