Welcome to my recipe page from the 'In All Things' launch party held on Saturday 24 October. At the party, we chatted about rooibos, a South African herbal tea drink - not one of my favourites but adding all these spices to make a tasty chai latte drink is ideal!
And then something I do love - vetkoek. Maybe not super healthy, but definitely super delicious. Try making some yourself using this family recipe used by a friend's cousin.
Make sure you click the links for the buttermilk rusk and curried mince accompaniments too!
