Book review: Durban Curry – So Much of Flavour

I read and reviewed lots of lovely cookbooks in 2014 but Erica Platter and Clinton Friedman’s Durban Curry – So Much of Flavour (PawPaw Press:  R295) was the one that seemed most likely to become an enduring culinary classic. In a publishing environment where obscure titles are this season’s foodie fashion, it is refreshing to […]

Recipe: Pork chops in an Asian-inspired sweet marinade

Someone who knows about these things once dissed a recipe book (which shall remain nameless) for being crammed with “great recipes, each with about five extraneous ingredients”. It’s been my mission to pare things down wherever possible ever since then. Here’s one of my all-time favourite lickety-split dishes that packs a flavour wallop, pleases even […]

Cosy Corner – restaurant review

I have never had a salomie so generous. I could hardly get my hand around it, such was the girth of this famous curry roll from Cosy Corner in Lower Wynberg. And it was delicious. The potato in the curry was miraculously tender: no flouriness, no glassiness. It held together perfectly. The lamb – huge […]

Recipe: Panna cotta with boozy fruit

France and Greece have both tried muscling in on Italy’s famous panna cotta, but with slim success. One of the great custards of the world, this ultra-smooth delectation is made with a simple mix of cream, sugar and vanilla, gently set with gelatine. Another blast from the past, the recipe has been dusted off and […]

Dollhouse – restaurant review

Anyone who grew up in Johannesburg (or, as in my case, wishes that they did) has a Dollhouse memory. The origins of this iconic Highland’s North roadhouse are unclear but there are photographs of the venue (complete with moving waiters looking blurred and ghost-like in the long exposure) dating back to 1940 – so, that’s […]

Kyoto Garden Sushi – restaurant review

Kyoto Garden Sushi has been having a good month. Four weeks ago it was rated five stars by Rossouw’s South African Restaurant Guide. This week, Eat Out voted Kyoto Garden SA’s Top Asian restaurant. Not bad for a gently-lit restaurant in a side street with a vibe that tends to quiet, not grandiosity. The sign […]

[spasie] – restaurant review

I’ve never thought much of long-table restaurants. Nor am I a fan of drinking wine out of tumblers. Innovative, hipster, trendy… whatever you want to call either fad, I prefer the privacy of a table for two, the absence of small talk and the elegance of long-stemmed glassware. Then I heard of [spasie]. I was […]
