It there’s one thing we know about asparagus it’s that there’s never a better time to enjoy it than when it’s in season – and that time is now. Woolies’ asparagus is grown in the sandy soils of the Free State and hand-picked to ensure it’s tender and juicy. Choose between thick or thin spears, or even the tips, and start cooking. This tender veg lends itself to a variety of cooking techniques. You could eat it raw, blanch it, steam it, grill it, roast it or even bake it – all perfectly delicious. And as for serving, asparagus loves savoury foods such as cheese, eggs or bacon – not to mention a bright green herby dressing. If you’d like to see more, we’ve made a video to celebrate, catch…

WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT CHICKENS? It would be a double blow, of course. I don’t know about you, but, right up there with the incredible egg (smirk), chicken is hands-down my favourite ingredient when a) I don’t feel like cooking; b) I feel like cooking; c) I want to cook something new; d) I want to make something flopproof; e) I want something comforting; f) I need to feed the masses; g) I want leftovers… I could go on.

WINNING LETTER “Mommy what are you making today?” That’s an everyday question from my four-year-old son. I enjoy challenging myself with new dishes. I made the chocolate-and-ginger bread in a bundt pan and topped it with the syrup from your speculaas tipsy cake (TASTE August 2020, p76)! It took two recipes to make my cake and the results were amazing! One thing I have learned is that even if you don’t have an exact ingredient from the recipe, you can easily replace it with a similar one. I did not have crystallised ginger and I replaced it with ground ginger and it was super-duper delicious, as my sons said after taking their first bite of the cake. I am always grateful to TASTE for amazing recipes, and always look forward to the…

“What fun! Tried the tiramisu with home-made lady fingers recipe from the August TASTE magazine, page 59. Loved the rustic way of putting it together, the melted dark chocolate added such lovely flavour and the caramelised almonds a wonderful crunch! A winner #Icookedwwtaste” – Michele Beukes “Made the new issue’s fish taco recipe! Delicious. Woolies was out of enchilada spice so I googled a mix and made my own. I added some toasted sesame seeds just because they are pretty. I made 181 portions today! Thanks TASTE! You inspire me in my kitchen!” – Yolanda le Roux…
