CREAMY BAKED CHEESECAKE — JAN the Journal

My mother LOVES cheesecake, so whenever I want to treat her, it’s always at the top of my list. Once you’ve got that failsafe recipe that you’ve tried and tested so much you know it can’t fail, you’ve got a great foundation. From here it gets really fun, because you can get so creative with the topp

PICKLED BABY HAKE WITH PEACHES — JAN the Journal

I’d love to say that I’ve always loved pickled fish in curry, but the truth is I only discovered it in my twenties! When I first moved to the Cape.

TARTE FLAMBÉE (Flammekueche) — JAN the Journal

To the northeast of France lies a region that I find truly fascinating. In many ways, Alsace finds itself between worlds. The original Alsatian dialect bears a more than striking resemblance to Swiss German (although, since WWII, fewer residents continue to speak the language). Its people are also n

BAKED FIGS WITH BLUE CHEESE & PARMA HAM — JAN the Journal

There’s a lot I miss about home when I’m in France, but my cravings always seem more pronounced during the in-between seasons. Right now, I couldn’t be more excited about springtime in Nice, seeing all the new produce arrive at the markets, planning my next season’s menu, and making picnic plans. Bu
