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.

Roasted smashed new potatoes with Parmesan

Nothing is easier than whacking a tray of new potatoes in the oven. Once soft and smashed, the olive oil and Parmesan gives then delicious crunchy edges.
