South Africa Recipes


Starters
South African starters are usually made from localised seasonal ingredients. Therefore in the Cape you will find most people will use fish based starters and in the veld you will find either meat or vegetable based starters.
Soups
There's nothing better in the winter than enjoying a hearty bowl of warm soup after been out for a lovely sunny stroll. Do try our favourite soup recipe, butternut soup!
Baking
Baking can be so much fun, especially when you get the children to help. There are so many wonderful recipes to choose from. Ranging from braaivleis bread, biscuits, cakes and wonderful mouth watering koeksisters.
Main Dishes
South African cooking has its roots in the many cultures that have visited the country over time. Therefore you will find the main dishes include a mixture of Eastern flavours, Western tastes and a healthy dose of bushveld ingredients.
Desserts
No South African meal is served without a number of side dishes. These dishes are usually seasonal and are rich in both Eastern spices and Western flavours.
