Winter’s Last Fling!

August 2016

It is with a measure of regret that we say goodbye to Winter’s Comfort Food!

In this month’s menu we coupled tradition with some trendy surprises. The Pumpkin soup (we used a combination of boerpampoen and butternut) shines with the addition of Feta Cream and sage.

Nothing, to my mind, beats our Old Fashioned Chicken Pie with Sour Cream Pastry! All the pie needs as an accompaniment is a medley of green vegetables dressed with our Cheese Sauce and a trendy seasonal Beetroot and Orange Salad.

Finally, turn on the bling with gold dusted Red Velvet Slices.
