It holds a very dear place in the heart of most South Africans, but once it leaves the shores of the African continent…Well, that’s when the trouble starts. When I try to describe it to people, concluding with “and it’s delicious!” […]

Rainbow Food: Part Two

To many, South African cuisine can appear like strange concoctions comprised of ingredients that really don’t belong together. That might be why Heston Blumenthal is such a fan (he talks about it here too)! There is a dish for every mood: it can be comforting, spicy, fresh, exciting…and it’s constantly evolving.
