And just like that, we hit the half way mark of 2017 and winter is in full force in Cape Town. I’m always tempted to stay in hibernation mode as much as possible during these deep cold months and comfort food happens to the max. Here are a few recipes that you could make in July. Stay warm friends. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, bookmark this post for January.
And while we are on the topic of citrus being in season, clementines and in particular Clemengold are in stores right now and this is a delicious cake with a hint of bitterness.
This is one of my all-time favourite vegetarian recipes and I love the earthy sweetness of the beetroot. It need goats cheese or pecorino to add a salty touch.
This cake is so delicious I included it my second cookbook ‘Sweet’. With oranges in full swing it’s the perfect recipe to make right now.
This recipe allows the humble carrot to shine with the addition of cumin to add depth.
I did say winter was about comforting eating right? These are hugely decadent but also delicious.
Along with the comfort must come some health and these next two salads are lovely in winter.
This is such a tasty salad using my new fave ingredient kohlrabi.
This is a delicious snack or cut it up and serve on a wintery cheese platter in front of a fire.
This is the perfect side to serve with the chicken Parmesan below. It’s also an absolute favourite recipe.
Its winter so this is mac & cheese time. I love adding roasted tomatoes to up the umami and add juiciness. Bacon is simply a must.
