Peppermint Crisp: This is a classic South Africa dessert that is so easy to whip up and hardly warrants a recipe. Its something I just make without thinking.

Potjiekos - In South Africa, potjiekos literally translated "small pot food", is a stew prepared outdoors. It is traditionally cooked in a round, cast iron, three-legged pot, the potjie. The recipe includes meat, vegetables, starches like rice or potatoes, all slow-cooked with Dutch-Malay spices, the distinctive spicing of South Africa's early culinary melting pot. Other common ingredients include fruits and flour-based products like pasta. Potjiekos originated with the Voortrekkers.

For South Africans abroad, there’s nothing quite like the taste of the mother country to bring on a wave of homesickness. Probably the most iconic taste of all is that of Mrs HS Ball’s Chutney. Manufactured in Johannesburg and exported to the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Germany, the chutney is a slightly sweet and spicy sauce made from apricots and peaches.

Mrs Balls chutney - Have it as a complement to roasts and barbecued meat and as an ingredient in curries and stews

Koeksisters! - A koeksister or koesister comes from the Dutch word koekje, which translates to "cookie". It is a South African syrup-coated doughnut in a twisted or braided shape (like a plait). It is prepared by deep-frying dough in oil, then dipping the fried dough into cold sugar syrup. Koeksisters are very sticky and sweet and taste like honey

Afrikaans culture - the Koeksister is a braided doughnut made in syrup-sauce. Very messy!
