Two easy winter recipes and some exciting news!

25 July 2013 in Easy to prepare, Taste of Durban

Everybody loses their mojo now and then, I think mine’s run off with the missing socks, hence the lack of posts from me lately. I have been cooking, but mostly my easy old favourites like my yummy oxtail and my Chinese style chicken soup. Click on the photograph to be taken to the recipe.

Early on Monday morning I had a call from Dstv to tell me that I was a finalist in a competition to win a trip for two to The Taste of London 2014.  (Food24 Editor Caro was there this year click here to see her photographs)

Tomorrow Himself and I will be off to The Taste of Durban, where on Saturday evening I will compete against two other finalists in a cook off. Apparently we will have to replicate a dish from one of the chefs and will be judged on taste and technical ability…..my nerves!

We will be staying at The Suncoast Towers for the weekend and will be at the show Friday evening and virtually all of Saturday, I can’t wait.

So cross fingers, hold thumbs and send positive thoughts my way!
