I love a challenge and last year had an absolute blast with the Community Cookathon hosted by yuppiechef. So, I had to take part in this year’s cookathon, not only for the challenge, but because I love supporting yuppiechef.
Part of the challenge was to cook 7 dishes – and for me, where to start? Should I start with the bobotie:
or head straight for the dessert of melk tert?
or even better, malva pudding!
However, I decided to start with the spicy chicken livers:
and followed this up with sugar free koeksisters – who knew the sugar free syrup would be as good as the real deal!
I followed this by cooking a lamb curry over two days:
being truly South African it is amazing I have never made phutu pap before. Sadly the given recipe for the pap and relish were not the best of the bunch and so what you see here is a BIG adaptation!
ps – all the dishes here represent my adaption of the recipes. I will post recipes slowly but surely for what I did. The word links will take you to the original recipes, which I adapted. And some of the photo’s already have links up as I have blogged the recipes already!
For the challenge I have recooked the first three dishes!
