The ultimate comfort food, few dishes can please like a roast chicken can. This recipe combines smoky South African flavour from the braai with the earthiness of rooibos and rosemary and the bright acidity of lemon. A kettle braai works best to smoke and roast the chicken simultaneously, but the chicken can also be cooked in an oven.
Epitomising summer feasting, paella is a celebratory combination of strong Spanish flavour and is one of the most popular “surf & turf” dishes. Featuring smoky chorizo, crispy pork belly and juicy prawns this richly flavoured recipe holds up to being paired with a robust red wine like Alto Cabernet Sauvignon.
Full of Mediterranean flavour, gremolata is an Italian herb sauce redolent of lemon zest, parsley and garlic. Delicious with most meats, the salinity of anchovy and capers works particularly well with the richness of lamb rib chops.
