Ina Paarman | Minced Beef and Vegetable Pies

We have given you 2 traditional South African options. (1) Illustrated Top and bottom pastry pies. These use more pastry and have less filling but are easy to eat out of hand. (2) Mini pot pies are baked in individual containers. They don't use a lot of pastry and have a generous amount of filling. Needs a spoon for eating. Both options will freeze really well.

Ina Paarman | Beetroot Salad with Orange and Pomegranate

Long life salads are the ideal travel companions on a camping trip. By adding the fresh orange and pomegranate just before serving you create a fresh deep red salad that sparkles like a box of jewels. It makes sense to cook a couple of bunches of beetroot at one time and make a fridge salad that you can use over a few meals.

Ina Paarman | Mini Herbed Yorkshire Puddings

The secret of perfect yorkies lies in the way it is baked. A very hot oven is needed and the Beef Stock with a little oil in the base of the muffin pans emulate the traditional browning left in the pan after roasting beef. It is also essential to pour the batter into a very hot muffin pan and to prick them when baked.

Ina Paarman | Coleslaw with Sour Cream Dressing

Unsalted cabbage leaches moisture, which makes coleslaw watery after standing. Salted cabbage has already shed its moisture and makes for coleslaw that is tender but not watery.

Roasted aubergine slices

Ina Paarman | Roasted Aubergine Slices

This to me is the ultimate way to preserve aubergines when they are fresh and at their best. I use the baked aubergine slices at breakfast time with bacon and eggs. Cubed and mixed in with sautéed mushrooms, they are delicious stirred into pasta, the slices are great to top grilled steak or chicken breasts and of course they make a very good salad
