In July we eagerly watched the lively Hayden Quinn grace our screens as he explored Cape Town cooking on top of Table Mountain, tasting as well as participating in the preparation of one of South Africa’s favourite dishes – a bobotie. From the onset, the show promised to be captivating, be full of adventure and it inspired viewers at home to experiment more with food, get out more and experience life.
I think you would agree that so far the cooking show has not disappointed. On the episodes we’ve seen so far Hayden Quinn has cooked and immersed himself in the life around Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Paternoster, Franschhoek, Hermanus and Knysna. Between these destinations he explored South African cuisine from various cultures and we have watched him prepare and try out mosbolletjies, potbrood, duck breast, oysters etc. Hayden’s interactions with the locals also give an interesting twist to the show while tantalizing our taste buds.
As with most cooking shows, a delectable illustration and collection of recipes, a documentation of places and experiences become the outcome. That is the case with Hayden Quinn as he introduces a collection of all the recipes from the show through a cookbook called, Dish It Up. The recipes are beach-living-inspired and are not only easy but also provide helpful hints on the dishes and ingredients. Dish It Up is perfect for cooks who aspire to fresh, healthy, mouth-watering food that’s easy to prepare and share. They are perfect for an outside braai while spending time with friends and family.
