Hard Chocolate Topping

Hard chocolate toppings keeps well in the fridge. Warm the chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave. Please be careful not to burn. Pour chocolate sauce over ice cream or dip the ice cream in a cone.

Deep-fry Chocolate Bar

This is a really decadent dessert. This recipe has been around for a while, and if you are a chocoholic it will always be a winner. Serve hot with custard and chocolate garnish, strawberries or a chocolate dipping sauce.

Umami (oo-mom-mee)

Umami is a “pleasant savoury taste”. We taste sweet, sour, salt and bitter, but the 5th taste is caused by a amino acid called glutamic acid which is found in a wide variety of foods. By adding umami to dishes you bring out a “depth of flavour.”

Buttered Chicken Curry

This is a rich, creamy and flavourful dish with a medium hot taste. This is the perfect way to introduce curry to those who don’t normally eat curry. Ethnic spices are combined with simple ingredients for a very tasty dish! Delicious!


Soya is very versatile, cost effective and nutritious. You can use it to replace meat in any stew, bredie, curry or potjie. The nutritional value increase makes this a product worth having! It’s attributed to a large amount of health benefits.

Mole Sauce

Mole is the generic name for a number of sauces used in Mexican cuisine and other dishes. This makes a super basting sauce for grilling/BBQ. It is one of those sauces you either love or hate, if you hate it, leave out the chocolate.

Oyster Soup

I served the soup in tiny Japanese tea bowls with lids and chopsticks. Serve with finely shredded spinach, which you have deep-fried until crispy (190 °C). It has a light sea-weed taste. (2003 Knysna oyster cooking competition – winning recipe).

Snails in Tom Yum Soup

This Thai paste is one of the most versatile spice/herb blends in the world. I also use it in potato salad, Indian curry, fish soup, BBQ beef, chicken livers, pate and many other recipes where a lemon/lime, ginger, chilli flavour is needed.
