fire in the belly

Do you order pork belly whenever you see it on a menu but are way too scared to cook it at home? We thought so. But here’s the thing: pork belly is really easy to get right – it just needs long, slow cooking. Score the fat and season the meat generously with your spices of choice, then sit back and relax while it roasts in the oven or grills on the braai. (Yes, you really can cook that belly over the coals.) Affordable, versatile, packed with flavour – say hello to your next showstopping meal! sapork.co.za Serving suggestions CRISPY PORK BELLY BUNS Preheat the grill to 220°C.

Thea, Max, Almaaz and Holly, the mini me’s of the TASTE team’s Jeanne, Amy, Rugshaana and Kate. IF YOU READ my monthly ramblings you’ll know how much I treasure family traditions. I hoard rituals and happy memories the way I used to hoard Easter eggs as a child. I’d keep my stash in my wardrobe for weeks after the hunt – precious chocolate roosters and rabbits too beautiful to unwrap. Sometimes I kept them for so long that when I eventually did unwrap them, the chocolate had bloomed and was white and blotchy.But the last decade has seen such massive changes to our once little family that I’ve had to learn to embrace new traditions. I’ve had to learn to eat the chocolate in the moment.…

the team says:

“My simple curry noodle salad is always a hit! The combination of curry and spice makes it so irresistibly good. Even friends who don’t usually go for pasta salad love it.” – Yvette Samaai “Mussels in a homemade, slow-cooked tomato sauce in the pizza oven with a dash of cream and hot-buttered sourdough toast dippers. The show of cooking it in the pizza oven was probably the best part.” – Hannah Lewry “I made Hannah Lewry’s roasted pumpkin with salsa verde for my sister’s book club. It got lots of oohs and aahs!” – Jacqueline Burgess “I get up very early to make a huge pavlova; it’s a ritual. If granadillas are in season, then I make a curd that I fold into plain…

winning letter

WOW! Taste team, you have done it again, inspired greatness from a mediocre home cook-cum-wannabe chef! My stepdaughter, who believes I can do ANYTHING in the kitchen, nonchalantly asked if I would make a wreath pavlova to end our Christmas lunch. With some trepidation I agreed, not wanting to disappoint her. I have never been able to successfully make meringue of any kind and resigned myself to the fact that after many attempts this was one thing I would never be able to do. (That and scones, which my late father said, if thrown, could seriously damage someone or something!) TASTE December 2018 to the rescue! The result? My meringues were gorgeous. The wreath pavlova was the pièce de résistance and was demolished with many oohs and aahs. Thank…
