My mate Anja (her blog is called reisenundspeisen.com for German speakers) loaned me her South African cookbook so I could get homeland feelings. And it worked! There was a recipe for Guinea fowl maafe, but I had never heard of the word or the dish. If you have, let me know please!
I know it was 2 weeks ago, but I just have to tell you about the wonderful New Years Eve we had and the awesome food we ate. Us 4 had a super party and Liz made a magnificent 5 course meal that would put many a restaurant to shame and will leave you wishing she was a friend of yours too!
Another year has passed and what a year it was. There's not many a year that can trump Trump and Brexit! 2017 is set to be a very interesting year. Hubby and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2017 will be exactly as you want it to be. C&Jxxx
Roger is a wonderful friend of ours and every 5 years he celebrates his birthday in a big way. This year was his 85th and he invited 70 of us to celebrate it with him in Bologna, Italy. Wow! I want to be just like Roger when I’m 85, just minus the moustache…
Bobotie is South Africa’s national dish and I never tire of it. I have put some of my own little twists to it, but the basic recipe is the traditional one. We had the deevine Rob and another new friend Guel for dinner a couple of days (make that months!) ago and they were a little worried about what to expect, but enjoyed it so much they have asked for the recipe. Thank you for the complement! So here it is!
(Today’s recipe: Dandelions)
Now where does the word Dandelion come from, I ask you. This is like Red Mullet actually being a Goat Fish. I love discovering the origin of words and/or just enjoying the strangeness of words. Maybe lion comes from the fluffy white head it gets before it goes forth and reproduces itself a thousand times over in my garden.
