A trio of heirloom recipes from Nicolene, Janie and Jo the vegetarian
Because we love to hear from people on the other side of the internet, we put out a call for your heirloom recipes and asked people to share them with us (with the possible reward of a Moleskine Recipe Journal) and have been delighted with the response.
Check out these three gems from Nicolene, Janie and Jo – and if you’re sitting on a champion, don’t be shy and send it to email@example.com at the speed of light.
1. Boere Curry Bunny Chow (Nicolene Richter)
“This is one of my favourite meals, my Granny used to cook this for us. It is out of her kitchen not a recipe book, and we Boertjies call it Afval! You have to start and prepare this early as it has to cook long and slow.”
2. Basson Quince Sambal (Janie Basson)
“My family loves Malay/Indonesian flavours and I grew up with Quince Sambal. Keep in mind it is a condiment – not a salad, and as such it has a high proportional content of both chillies and onions. It goes very well with any meat, bobotie, and lasagne and of course a braai! Any meal that needs a sharp condiment to cut through the richness of the food.”
3. Irresistible Family Fruit Cake (Jo Sobey)
“My grandmother gave me three things: the love of sewing, the quest for knowledge and an enjoyment of playing in the kitchen. She also made the most delicious, moreish fruit cake imaginable. This is her recipe, made in the ring tin she used to use.”
Thanks for sharing your heirlooms, ladies, and enjoy your Moleskines. Got one too? Send it to us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Over and out.
