    Now us South Africans really know about good quality karoo lamb. This dish will absolutely have you begging for more of these tender, juicy and meaty cutlets. My family and friends absolutely love them.

    A South African pudding, which is the ultimate winter dessert. It's rich and syrupy with a soft and spongy texture. Serve hot or cold, with lashings of pouring cream, if desired.

    A warming creamy chicken casserole that reminds me of growing up in South Africa. I don't think there is a South Afrcan out there that doesn't have their own version of a Chicken a'la King. This recipe was passed on to me by a friends Aunt and I always get complimented on it every time I cook it. Simple to prepare and tastes even better the next day! Perfect for any occasion.

    Also known as Melktart, this South African tart tastes very similar to a custard tart but it's made with more milk than eggs. It looks and tastes lovely with cinnamon sprinkled on top.

    A traditional South African recipe, which calls for rice to be cooked with turmeric, sugar, cinnamon, raisins and butter. It's easy and goes well with highly flavoured meats, such as venison.
