Goose eggs are almost as impossible to get hold of as the proverbial wild goose, hence sending someone on a wild goose chase for something! My first encounter with goose eggs was last year when I bought two of them at Giovannis in Green Point  and I served mine on  a delicious wheat risotto and […]

homemade pasta

Homemade Pasta is without a doubt my favorite thing to make. If Baking Bread is my therapy, then making my own pasta is self-indulgence. There is just something so magical about 1 egg and flour, gently converted into your own homemade pasta. After all that is in essence what pasta is, egg and flour. We […]

Top 5 Bread Recipes

Whole wheat bread has to be really good or else I’m prefer pillow-soft white bread! If I’m going to eat healthy whole wheat bread it must be full of goodness, moist, lots of nuts, fruit and it must have a crusty outside!

Caramel……. that sweet indulgence that adds calories and centimeters to your body, just by saying the word. Add caramel to just about anything and  you can start a new addiction. Caramel drizzled over even the humble bowl of popcorn transforms it to something heavenly. I made a crucial mistake and entered the word “caramel” into […]
