Festive “soetkoekies” (photograph by Tasha Seccombe) - The taste of these old-fashioned sweet buttery biscuits takes me straight back to my childhood home in Stellenbosch, where I baked several batches of these each year before our annual Christmas holiday in Keurboomstrand. They are delicately spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon, and they’re just heavenly dipped in warm tea.

Braised Oxtail (Potjiekos) from Food.com:   								Potjiekos has been part of the South African culture for centuries, since the first settlements at the Cape when food was cooked in a black cast-iron pot hanging from a chain over the kitchen fire. This could work as a crockpot recipe, or as a set-it and forget-it stew. Original recipe is from Conrad Gallagher's "In 3 easy Steps" cookbook.
