Peri Peri Chicken Livers:   South Africa has a large Portuguese community which is famous for its amazing foods.    We’re also home to a “peri peri” fast food chain that brings Portuguese cooking to the man in the street. The best part about this “fast food” is that it’s said to be the healthiest of all the on-the-go foods we get here, with flame grilled chicken and a variety of salads on offer.  #cooking #recipes #food #southafrica

South Africa fruit chutney:   South Africans love chutney, whether it’s the famous “Mrs Ball’s” that now sells in “expat” stores around the globe; the chutney flavoured crisps; crispy chutney chicken; or a dollop of fruit chutney to complement a curry, we’re all crazy for the stuff.  #cooking #recipes #food #southafrica #chutney

South African Rusks.  A rusk is a very hard and very dry biscuit that was often made by the Dutch travelers. They are very much without moisture and as such will travel well. #cooking #recipes #food #southafrica #rusks

Bunny Chow: "...during the Great Depression Indians, whites & Chinese in Durban suffered hunger... The cheapest curry was made by an Indian caste known in Durban slang as the Bania. Kids took to hollowing out a 1/4 loaf & getting the seller to put the curry into it. They then used the bread they'd taken out as an eating utensil. Chinese food was called "chow"... the two words came together: Bania Chow... With time it became simply, Bunny Chow." #cooking #recipes #food #southafrica #bunnychow

Cape Velvet creme brulee. I have a friend who says that one judges a good butcher in this country by the quality of the boerewors he makes and there is a lot of truth in that. And when it comes to desserts I tend to judge a restaurant by the quality of its creme brulee.    It’s not one of the most difficult desserts to make, but not many eateries get it just right. #cooking #recipes #food #southafrica #desserts #cremebrulee

Bobotie.  This is a traditional South African minced meat dish, slightly sweet and lightly curried. A Cape Malay recipe, it is a firm favourite across the country - and with visitors lucky enough to get a taste of it! #cooking #recipes #food #southafrica #capemalay

Spicy lentils.  A delicious dish to serve with a salad or as a side dish to steak, chicken or fish, spicy lentils is a good alternative for a meat dish if guests are vegetarian. #cooking #recipes #food #southafrica #lentils
