Following the success of the inaugural House and Leisure Food issue in 2011, the second special-edition HL Food issue is now available countrywide. Featuring recipes from some leading local chefs, this year’s collection covers a wide range of dishes from sophisticated to relaxed, and budget-friendly to indulgent.
“Contributors include top South African chefs such as Peter Tempelhoff, Christiaan Campbell, Werner Snoek, Eric Bulpitt, Kevin Gouws and Malika van Reenen. Local foodie personalities Tina Bester, Suzi Holtzhauzen and the Ras sisters are also in the line-up, as are previous HL food editors and cookbook authors Phillippa Cheifitz and Neil Roake. The contribution of our current food editor, Raphaella Frame, deserves a special mention as she has created many of the dishes selecte,” says editor, Naomi Larkin.
‘House and Leisure Food is aimed at food lovers and people who enjoy cooking and entertaining,’ says Raphaella. ‘Mouth-watering food need not be fancy, but then again, a bit of food theatre to entertain friends is never a bad idea. We have a recipe for every taste.’
Some of the recipes featured are:
- Snoek fishcakes with spicy potato wedges and chutney
- Warm Moroccan spiced lamb salad with couscous
- Tagliatelle with peas, ricotta and mint
- Courgette and lemon curd cupcakes with cream cheese icing
- Chicken wraps with plum sauce, spring onions and cucumber
- Croissant bread and butter pudding
- Fig, honey and ginger yoghurt tart
During February and March, HL will add more food content to the House and Leisure website. Visitors to the site will also be able to create their own food file by using the popular HL Moodboard to save their favourite recipes in their own personal collection.
