Warm Winter Salad

Winter hit Cape Town this weekend, it is absolutely freezing cold (there is definitely snow somewhere).  Although a stew or curry can cure the winter blues, I do tend to crave vegetables.  Salad is such an uninspiring meal to make during the cold months – cold lettuce, cold cucumber, cold feta….its all too summery and conducive to hot, sunny day.

Tomato-Tamarind Fish Curry

I love fish, it is one of my favourite meats.  But fresh fish can be super expensive and unfortunately I don’t have it has often I as would like (which would be like 4 times a week).  Frozen fish is slightly more affordable, but it doesn’t taste nearly as good as a piece of fresh fish.  However frozen fish works really well in curries and stews.

Chocolate, Coconut and Banana Muffins

I attempted to make gnocchi two weekends ago with the help and patience of Doug.  I love  gnocchi! Beautiful soft, pillows of joy either pan fried or coated in a slow cooked ragu or light sauce.  I am salivating just thinking about it!  I have always wanted to make gnocchi so I gave it ago.
