do it differently

We’ve thought out of the box and the glass in this issue… the pizza box and Champagne glass, that is – our intriguing selection of dishes made with Méthode Cap Classique (MCC), SA’s version of Champagne, produced in the same style as the original French bubbly (page 38); and our five recipes for making nontraditional pizza bases with a range of nutritious ingredients (page 90) – plus toppings with a difference – are good reason to enjoy two of SA’s favourite treats in a whole new way. The fresh inspiration doesn’t end there! In the spirit of embracing all tastes and preferences at your New Year’s Eve soirée, make sure you have platters of our oh-so delicious vegan canapés (no, that’s not an oxymoron) to hand round – trust me when…

the top culinary trends of 2020 uncovered...

1 FRUIT AND VEGGIE FLOURS Amazon Whole Foods predicts that “2020 will bring more interesting fruit and vegetable flours into home pantries”. The top three flours tipped to trend are banana, cauliflower and tigernut – contrary to what its name suggests, a tigernut is a tuber vegetable similar to a sweet potato but much smaller. 2 CBD OIL While cannabidiol (CBD) oil has already trickled its way onto the epicurean scene, 2020 is set to be the year it makes a splash on restaurant, fast-food and coffee shop menus, as well as in the soft- and carbonated drinks market. 3 FORGOTTEN AFRICAN GRAINS Equally recognised for agricultural and nutritional benefits, fonio (West Africa’s oldest drought-resistant cereal) and teff (hailing from Ethiopia) are hopping back on board the ancient grain train. 4 GASTROPHYSICS Head of Oxford University’s Crossmodal…

winning letter pride & joy Growing up on remote forestry plantations at the foot of the Drakensberg, our homestead was quite isolated. This meant family gatherings were a tremendous occasion involving amazing feasts. Feasts that were a vibrant celebration of traditional South African cuisine – recipes lovingly handed down through generations, shared between neighbours with great pride and all laid out on the farmhouse dinner table, for everyone to marvel at and devour! It is with these rich childhood memories that I relish SA’s annual commitment to Heritage Day, when dazzling cuisine takes centre stage. From home-cooked bobotie (done Ouma’s way) to our passion for a great braai, I burst with pride at our nation’s absolute love of good food. This is how I felt when I read the September 2019 issue of…
