Christmas Baked Alaska

My Christmas Baked Alaska is perfect for a South African Christmas. A Summer Christmas with sun and sea and open skies. The Christmas Baked Alaska also has a surprise element, because no one knows what is on the inside, until you cut it. Kind of like a Christmas gift….. just edible! The part I like […]

Passion Fruit Cheesecake Slices

I made these Passion Fruit Cheesecake Slices twice in less than a week, they were that good.

Delicious Chicken Salad

This Delicious Chicken Salad has been my staple this summer. Maybe it is old age, but I have never been more bothered by this intense heat.

Camembert Salad

Camembert Salad with Summer fruit, honeyed walnuts and a lemon curd salad dressing. You want summer on a plate, this is it! Camembert salad is usually nuggets of crumbed Camembert on a bed of rocket.

pork rillettes paté

Pork Rillettes is all the goodness of pork in spreadable form. The fattiness, the robust pork flavor and the shredded texture. Pork Rillettes paté is almost the same as rillettes, I just took it a little further in the processor to give a smoother end result….. a little more lady-like. I am a a sucker […]

Berry Lattice Tart to welcome Spring in my kitchen, hell yes! This Berry Lattice Tart can be made in winter too, using frozen berries. However, I have been eyeballing the fresh berries for weeks now.
