As most South Africans, I too enjoy nothing more than a good braai and a beer on the weekend. Saying this, I couldn’t have been more excited when I heard about the Fire & Feast Butcher’s Festival. We were fortunate enough to get invited to the event and thought we’d extend the invitation to a few lucky…

Duck with Asian Mushroom Broth

Duck with Asian Mushroom Broth

  Duck has hit our grocery store shelves and it’s no longer limited to specialist delis. I always enjoy duck when I order it at a restaurant and I am happy to see it appear on so many more menus. No longer limited to Asian pancakes, duck has taken off (I couldn’t resist) and reached…

Homemade Mediterranean Chicken Burgers {Recipe}

I love a good chicken burger. However, I am not a fan of the “chicken breast” burger and I appreciate the convenience of the ready to go crumbed chicken burger, but it’s not my favourite version. Chicken mince isn’t always available on the shelves of our local grocer. And that’s ok. It’s easy to make…

Sceptical at first, I tentatively dished up one wing and nibbled away. It was good. It didn’t change my life but I didn’t dislike…
