Flavours from South Africa

‘By changing the way we prepare the most ordinary ingredients in our store cupboard, we can create dishes from far-off places that only  exist in our dreams.  And as the aroma fills our home as we cook and then when we bring the food to the table to share,   we are left with memories of a good meal from the place of our dreams’

I cannot wait to share my  Biltong feature very soon to my collection of recipes from the varied cuisine of South Africa.

Many of our televiewers have made Malva Pudding and everyone seems to love it. The hot sauce needs to be poured  over the pudding while it is still piping hot and just out of the oven.  It adds moisture and flavour and you can also substitute the evaporated milk with coconut milk as an alternative.  Use an ovenproof dish without a loose bottom to make this dessert.  Serve warm as it is or with custard, whipped cream or ice cream.
