Favorate South African Recipes
South African pumpkin fritters. I've tried another recipe before & it wasn't a hit. Will give this one a try next.
The Best Koeksister recipe & my adventures in the Klein Karoo
It was only about 3 hours into the drive along Route 62 when I realised what I was actually doing; I was travelling 400km into the middle of the Klein Karoo (aka nowhere) in search of 'The Perfect Koeksister'.

The first time that I had "souskluitjies" for dessert, was at my Grandma Naomi Uys's house in Johannesburg when I was about 15 years old. My Ouma was a very grand lady - perfectly groomed, well-traveled, informed and very stylish. Their townhouse in Northcliff was impeccable, filled with beautiful Persian carpets and mohair curtains.
