Chicken roasted in beer

Chicken is a national bird in Africa. Where there are people, you will find chickens. Here is an outstanding combination of flavours, all centred upon a slightly boozy version of Sunday lunch.
Madumbi in a creamy sauce

Madumbi, or the more accurate plural, amadumbe, is the rhizome that made KwaZulu-Natal famous. These flavoursome nuggets grow in our vegetable garden and can be found in fresh produce outlets across the province.
Cowboy pork and beans

Cold weather demands easy-eating, easy-cooking hot food in large quantities. Try this variation on a Western cowboy theme. Take along a wide-mouthed thermos of this meal next time you’re home on the range…
Rigatoni pasta with beef sauce

It was a Thursday, and this means spaghetti bolognaise in my house. So you can imagine the shock when my schoolteacher daughter visited and cooked a dinner that shattered the inflexible routine of her parents. What we got was rigatoni with beef sauce, and this is how you make it.

Hot, nutritious soup is ideal as a snack, a starter or a full meal. Here’s a delicious soup recipe for the beginner cook that will satisfy the most sophisticated diners wherever, and whenever, it is served.

Grilled prawns & prawn risotto

Here is a satisfying dish that brings together the creamy richness of arborio rice and the glorious flavour of prawns. The first involves a slow, gentle cooking process of simmering, stirring and frying. The second sees all hell break loose for three minutes.
Tabbouleh, your vegan standby

A good friend and former colleague has been converted to veganism. Vegans eat no animal- based foods, including milk and eggs. This is what I prepared when he and his fellow vegans came for lunch.
Ginger and honey cake

Baking is complex or simple, depending on how you’re feeling on the day. The food I cook is mostly very simple. Baking, on the other hand, is full of mysteries. If you’re up to the shock of it all, give this classic ginger and honey cake your best shot...
