comfort me with carbs

THERE IS NO COMFORT FOOD like Italian food. If food has genres, which of course it does, the Italians must take the credit for this one. And it’s not just the food either, it’s the way the food is prepared: with generosity, skill, respect for tradition, and very often with lots of carbs and cheese. One of the first proper recipes I learned to cook was osso buco Milanese, from the blue River Café cookbook. That page still bears the smears of my early years as a budding food nerd.

WINNING LETTER Christmas with my family has always been a festive affair. The whole family would congregate at my grandparents’ place for a week of affection, celebration, good food and crowded sleeping conditions. The Christmas table would be filled with an incredible array of dishes, but the ever-present highlight was the slow-cooked lamb that my grandmother is famous for. We would all wait expectantly for the heavy cast-iron pot to appear and would dish up, putting way too much on our plates. This would happen on Christmas Day and continue for days as we enjoyed the leftovers.

on the menu: eid al-adha

Saadiyah Hendricks cooked her first dish – mince curry – when she was 10 years old. She started her blog Sadie’s Bubble of Yum a decade ago as a space to explore her love of cooking. And while she’s still working full-time, and raising two girls, she’s become something of an Instagram icon – especially in the baking world. This month, she is our guest contributor on taste.co.za. Ahead of Eid al-Adha, we asked Sadie to share eight of her favourite showstoppers for the occasion. We got her mom’s recipe for the perfect mutton biryani, special-occasion lobster tails with a creamy, garlicky, buttery sauce you’re going to want to eat with a spoon, and a magnificent cardamom pavlova with whipped rose cream for dessert. Get yourself to taste.co.za for these recipes…
