Heritage Day Recipes

Heritage day is the celebration of our South African culture.  Our History, expressions, language, and food.   Many South Africans (including myself) recognises the 24th of September as Braai Day because there’s absolutely nothing that unites a group of people more than an open fire, the smell of chops and boerewors in the air, and a beer in hand.  Needless to

Cake, Yes Please!

I am positive that I have spent more money on coffee these past few months than my food and wine bill combined. Yes fine, I’m exaggerating, but I’d pass a blind taste test of the whole Nescafe range and ace it! Life of a baker is definitely filled with plenty early mornings – especially when (like me) you’re juggling 2

Cupcakes for (any) one
