Fresh egg pasta with peppered mackerel & reduced white wine cream sauce

Making fresh egg pasta takes a bit of time, but its soft, silky texture is more than enough reward. Plus, rolling out sheet upon sheet of your own homemade pasta is almost therapeutic, much like kneading your own bread dough. This recipe, with its reduced white wine and cream sauce, is rich and decadent –…

Sure plesier

Suurlemoene. Sakke en sakke suurlemoene om te omskep in iets lekker. Dít is een winternaweek in ’n jaar my voorland. In ons klein duplekswoonstelletjie se tuintjie staan daar ’n suurlemoenboom wat byna heeljaar, maar veral in die koue wintermaande, sy bes doen om te beïndruk met sy skynbaar onuitputlike vermoë om vrug te dra –…

Zesty lentil, courgette & pea salad

To me, having a packet of dried lentils in the kitchen cupboard at all times is a basic culinary principle. This trusty legume has saved me from many a potentially boring end-of-the-month dinner. I use it in soups, salads and sides or as a dish in its own right, usually flavoured with smoky bacon, fried…

Roasted baby vegetables

This mix of roasted baby vegetables is visually appealing in its combination of intense red and green and is rich in flavour. The heartiness of the roasted potatoes and onions is balanced by the freshness of the tomato and just-wilted spinach, making this an ideal dish for both summer and winter. Dead easy to make,…

It’s the small things

I am totally, utterly and undeservedly blessed. Unfortunately, however, I don’t live up to these blessings.
