Cape Malay Home Cooking made easy. The Muslim community has also had a large influence on the cooking of South Africa. Cape Malay cuisine is delicious. It usually consists of a combination of fruit, spices, vegetables and meat.

Using my cooking know how to inspire everyone to cook the food they love. Here you will find tried and tested simple and delicious recipes for relaxed home cooking that go far beyond baking. From easy soups and roasts to delicious breads, deserts, stews, etc…
