what to make your dad on fathers day

Fathers day is happening this Sunday so wanted to share a few recipes you could make to spoil the the dude who raised you. I won’t be with my dad on Sunday, but if I was, this is what I would consider making for him. 

Roast chicken in white wine, herbs & garlic

This recipe, and permutations of it with stout, or using a whole bird is the only way I ever want to eat my roast chicken. Once this is in your cooking repertoire, you will never look back. Your dad will also be very happy.

recipes to make in june

June has rolled in, but sadly for us in Cape Town, winter hasn’t really come with it. It definitely has got colder, but we are still waiting for the much-needed rains to replenish our water system. Here’s hoping that the ‘mega storm’ predicted for Wednesday arrives and stays for a few days. These recipes are perfect to make when you baton down the hatches and snuggle up at home this month. 

Eggs Benedict on roasted brown mushrooms

I love this version of eggs benedict which has the poached eggs nestled on a roasted brown mushroom. Perfect if you are watching your carbs.

vietnamese summer vegetable rollls

I adore Vietnamese rice paper rolls and since visiting Vietnam a the end of last year I love them even more. They are pockets of vibrant freshness that are so healthy your halo starts shining the minute you pop one in your mouth. For this recipe I have kept them vegetarian – although I do love prawns in them too. The important thing is to add variety to give enough crunch and flavour. You can literally clear out your fridge to make them. I have gone in a vegetable salad direction here and included romaine (cos) lettuce leaves too.  Continue Reading →

I think I went a little OTT with this one, but I figured the world doesn’t need another banana bread recipe (yawn), so I mixed it up. Blueberries, banana and chocolate are all happy flavor partners and I had all three on hand. I also felt like baking, which is happening a lot these days. The onset of winter and my intense desire to nest at home goes hand in hand with turning on my oven and baking delicious treats or bread. Continue Reading →

I spent last week-end away in the beautiful hamlet of Churchaven up the West Coast. It was just what I needed after an abrupt start to my work year, giving me three days to recharge my batteries again and revel in this idyllic environment. I wanted to try these four delicious salad recipes out on my friends, because summer and salads at the beach seemed the perfect way to go.

Churchaven, South Africa

I wanted to shoot in the gorgeous cottage we stayed in and, luckily for me, one which I will be visiting often this year.

I discovered that recipe testing, entertaining friends and shooting all at the same time is quite tricky and I ran out of steam when the food got to the table. The whole thing was quite a production and I just wanted everyone to get stuck in as opposed to watch me dither around taking more pictures. I thoroughly regret this decision because everything was quite beautiful and I wish I’d persevered. My friends are very understanding of my weird ways with food. Continue Reading →
