This year’s menu moves away from the traditional to a more trendy selection. Start the celebration with a pretty Prawn Salad with Chilli Dip. Allow the men to gather around the braai to finish off the Orange Duck while you have the kitchen (and oven) to yourself to roast the Pork Belly and potatoes and to add the finishing touches to the vegetables. Spoil everyone with the beautiful Cheesecake Trifle with Red Berries.
