FELLOW SOUTH AFRICANS… it’s been a year. One whole year since we packed up our desks, emptied the beloved TASTE kitchen in the middle of the year’s tightest deadline and finished the May issue at our dining-room tables. Which makes this an anniversary issue. Last May, TASTE was full of family recipes and food we crave as the days get shorter and shelves start sprouting pears and parsnips, whole pumpkins and Tuscan kale. This issue is also full of comfort food and, fittingly for an anniversary, it is also the first of our bigger, bi-monthly issues. Yes, you read correctly – from now on, you will get a fatter issue of TASTE, more jam-packed than ever, just every second month. Now, far from being a print detractor’s harbinger of doom, this is…

what’s your favourite comfort food?

“Squashing soft little pillows of gnocchi between tongue and palate makes me happy.” – Tharien Nel “It has to be something involving béchamel sauce. I ate gallons of the stuff as a child and it was the first thing my mom taught me to cook, so I could make it myself. Mac and cheese, lasagne, my mom’s version of chicken à la king – it all makes me feel warm, comforted and cosy.” – Katharine Pope “Butter chicken and rotis. I’ve been trialling various spice combinations during lockdown.” – Alistair Fester “What comes to mind when I think of comfort food is definitely something carb heavy. I make a mean lasagne and it’s definitely one of the family’s favourites too.” – Yvette Samaai “Oxtail stew with dumplings with a glass of Merlot brings me…

The kids have been begging us to make the plaatkoekie tower on the cover of TASTE magazine (November, 2020). We’ve been watching the latest MasterChef as a family activity each night, so they challenged us to a cook-off!

“My mum used to make me leftover roast lamb/chicken/roast beef and salad sandwiches. She would not allow Vegemite or peanut butter in the house. I was always swapping my lunches.” – Connie Miles “My mom Elna Coetzer made the BEST lunchboxes. Still can’t believe how she worked a full day and then had the time and energy to put a gorgeous lunch box together. We got chicken mayo sarmies. Cheese and salad with crunchy cucumber on it (still love cucumber on a sarmie till this day). If we were good there would be a Melrose wedge and packet of Nik Naks. Oh, how I miss those days.” – Chanel Lee Glass “A pikkie – a little cardboard triangle filled with condensed milk! Other than that it was usually a wholewheat sandwich with…
