My friend Michala used to live in Gordons Bay. We have a common love of food and she shared this recipe of Jambalaya with me. I have never tried this version which is why there is no photograph of her dish. Maybe one day I will get around to testing it.
This jambalaya recipe comes from the Argus food section on Thursdays, and it’s from 2001! It seems to get better and better.

At this stage of my blogging I was not really concerned with photographs. My blog was all about sharing recipes. I made an effort to share a recipe per day and this one was orginally posted on my food24 blog. I moved that blog across to the Taste platform as it was part of Woolworths. At that stage I was developing recipes for their online portal. I have also had my recipes featured in their magazine. I only started this WordPress blog in 2010 and at the time I created it I just moved all of my recipes across. This is why there is an untested recipe featured here, with no visual content.
