South-Africa - Peppermint Crisp Tart - A typical South African dessert the Peppermint Crisp Fridge Tart is incredibly rich and decadent, but hugely popular all the same. Trust me, once you've tried it you will be so happy you did!!

South African lemon meringue pie. This is a classic South African favourite and differs from its North American counterpart because the filling calls for egg yolks, lemon juice and condensed milk; where theirs is what we would call “lemon curd”. Having tasted both, I have to say that ours is my best. (But they have pumpkin pie, which we don’t!)
