our daily bread

Life was put into perspective for me recently by a Karoo thrush I’ve cooed and clucked at in my garden and fed only fresh breadcrumbs for the last three years. One evening, while my husband and I were sitting down to supper, into our house hopped this little birdie, settling on a coiled pile of TV cables, which were clearly the closest thing to a nest he could find. Refusing to be coaxed out by anything – including my now-minced dinner on a saucer – he stayed there for the night. The following morning, he stepped out onto our patio and sat in the sun, not objecting in the slightest to me stroking him. Not even 10 minutes later, he gently closed his eyes for the last time. I was inconsolable all…

ADEL FERREIRA Freelance photographer Being a mother of two boys, it is the simple things in life that hold the greatest pleasure. My favourite part of cooking is picking fresh herbs from the garden. Inspired by Kath Megaw’s Real Food – Healthy, Happy Children , I want to grow a lot more of my own food. One of my favourite dinners is ostrich steak done on a griddle pan, green beans with a lemon and garlic sauce and roasted veggies.

It takes no time at all to get me, my wife and kids out to Pearly…

AN AGELESS SKILL I’m 13 years old and an avid reader of this magazine, as well as an aspiring chef. I have been cooking since I was three (that’s another story!) and I started reading Food & Home Entertaining in 2010. I love your amazing recipes and your reviews of gourmet restaurants. I read many cooking magazines but, I’ve got to say, this magazine exposes me to so much as a chef-to-be. My favourite recipe was your frosted coconut lemonade (January 2016), which shows, in a most brilliant way, how to use something that is so plain in a gourmet manner. One of my most memorable moments was when I made some coconut prawns and my younger cousins helped me – we ended up with lots of coconut on the floor and…
