Salmon tacos

These are perfect for taco Tuesdays or a Saturday braai with friends. The combination of the lightly charred fish and the creamy dressing makes these tacos unforgettable.

Salted caramel and apple upside-down cake

This upside-down apple cake is essentially two desserts in one! Buttery caramelised apples all held together with a light and airy sponge. And, to top it off, next-level salted caramel sauce drizzled on top!

Asian-style spatchcocked chicken

Tired of the same old BBQ chicken marinade? Try our Asian-inspired spatchcocked chicken. The marinade is infused with ginger and chilli, which adds an incredible flavour to this classic bird.
