bring home the bacon

A good way to bring your budget back on track in the new year is to look for food that’s gentle on the pocket. South African pork is one of the most affordable options out there and incredibly versatile, too. A leg of pork roasted slowly in the oven can go a long way towards a variety of meals – pull the pork and use it to make lasagne, or the filling for spicy tacos, or add it to your next stir-fry. Roast some over the weekend and enjoy the benefits all week long. Talk about a good return on your investment. tastyhealthymodernmeat.co.za Serving suggestion Mix 2 T paprika, 1 T garlic flakes, 1 T brown sugar, 1 T hot English mustard powder, 3 T sea salt and rub all over a…

take it easy

OKAY, so “the new easy” isn’t technically new . Not for everyone anyway. People have obviously been eating baked beans on toast since time immemorial, but if you love food and feeding people, canned beans won’t cut it as a midweek family dinner. And in that case, “the new easy” might be a proper revelation. It was for me. There are no beans on toast in this issue, but there are a lot of recipes that taste like they took a lot more time and effort than they actually did. The point? So you can spend more time at the table and less in the kitchen. Of course, one person’s “easy” is another person’s terrifying MasterChef challenge. Accomplished cooks always say annoying things like, “Oh, my twice-baked Alaska berry bombe? It’s really…

the team says

“I stay in the shade! And we do lots of seafood braais with snoek and yellowtail with garlic, apricot jam and butter. Sweet, sticky and so good!” – Alistair Fester “I cook more in the evenings for the next day, which helps me save time and money, and hopefully repent for my holiday overindulgence!” – Hannah Lewry “My husband makes a great dish using overripe tomatoes. He cooks them down with garlic, thyme and red wine vinegar and we eat it spooned over rice, or polenta cooked with a little stock and Parmesan.” – Katharine Pope “We make an end-of-the-month dinner with chilli, grated scraps of Parmesan, black pepper and chopped parsley mixed into pasta – usually a mix of all the quarter packets collected during the month.” – Abigail Donnelly “My picky eaters get stock-standard sarmies, with…

winning letter

One of the joys of subscribing to TASTE is that after reading the current issue (which I usually do by the middle of the month) I dig out one of the back issues and page through a lot of the recipes that I’ve either forgotten or didn’t take my fancy at the time. One of these was in the June 2018 issue, Phillippa Cheifitz’s Middle Eastern orange cake with spiced syrup on page 90. This easy-to-make cake is absolutely delicious. I’ve made it three times and totally wowed my guests. Thank you, TASTE. THE WRITER OF THIS MONTH’S WINNING LETTER WILL RECEIVE three bottles of Bosman Family Vineyards’ very popular Bosman Adama red blend and three bottles of Bosman Woolworths Chenin Blanc, presented in a beautiful Bosman Wine Club case, worth…
