We are a house of pizza lovers, but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up a little and make something other than the regular cheese and tomato feast. This is where lahmacun (essentially a dough flatbread topped with a minced meat mixture) is a very tasty alternative. I put this scrumptious recipe together a few years ago for a tv cooking segment and realised that I’d never actually shared it here, time to rectify that!Continue reading “Spicy lamb lahmacun”
While Cape Town still decides whether it is actually spring or not (and I sit and type at my desk watching the clouds gather outside) I thought I’d sneak in a cooler weather dish. Tomato bredie is a South African family pleaser and has the marvellous combination of lamb, fragrant spices and tomatoes that we know and love. Once all of the ingredients are in the pot you can leave it to work its magic until its time to serve up. Scrumptious!
I have long been a fan of Leopard’s Leap wine, so I was thrilled when they asked me try out their latest recipe creation for Father’s Day. What a treat it was!
This incredible lamb recipe comes from one of my favourite cookbooks, “Jamie’s 30 minute meals” by Jamie Oliver. It was a Christmas present from my lovely sister many years ago and I have used it often when I need week night supper inspiration. All of the recipes I have tried so far have worked really well but this easy lamb and vegetable platter really impressed me. It’s a simple recipe when you look it but it tastes incredible, and best of all you can have this gorgeous platter of food (it’s a feast, let’s be honest) in no time at all!
