step up to the plate

ooking for a salad? You’ve come to the wrong place – this month, that is. Try us again in summer when we’re feeling light and breezy. But, for now, you’ve got luscious and lickable plates of indulgent winter fare beckoning to you to dig in with abandon! No doubt our no-bake blueberry cheesecake cover dish (see recipe on page 11) was a leading clue to our hedonistic state of mind, although we did rein in on the sugar in this awesome dish by using Freesweet, a fabulous new sugar replacement that’s just hit shelves. Loaded with benefits, Freesweet is already gaining a loyal following – read the intriguing background story to the development of this product on page 12.

winning letter KITCHEN fairy My daughter, Holly (eight years old), loves to spend time in the kitchen helping me, as well as making her own creations. She also enjoys watching television programmes like MasterChef . When she spotted the white chocolate and fig tart on the cover of the May 2019 issue of Food & Home Entertaining , she decided she wanted to make it for our Easter Sunday lunch’s dessert. While I marinated lamb and prepared vegetables, Holly made the tart all by herself. It was the perfect ending to a delicious family meal.

the butterfly effect

Freesweet founder and creator Deborah Good isn’t a formally trained product developer. Yet this Durban-based mother of five has developed a sugar replacement unlike any other.

And so, her purpose became clear: she would create a total replacement for sugar. “My objective was to create an entirely new offering in the category of natural sweeteners – one that has health benefits when used responsibly and…
