Gastronomisch gevogelte (2/2): Geen kerstkalkoenen maar kerstkapoenen

RVW Meningen 2019-11-14

"Kapoenen zijn zowat het beste wat de kippenfamilie ons kan bieden, en toch komt het in Vlaanderen en Nederland zelden op tafel. Nochtans is kapoen echt iets voor de feestdagen, pure 'luxueuze' traditie. Voor de liefhebbers van de jaarlijkse kalkoen is dat een perfect alternatief, zelfs de grootte van het dier is vergelijkbaar." 

Gastronomisch gevogelte (1/2): Ortolanen, de verboden delicatesse

RVW Culinair 2019-11-08

"Sinds 1979 is het eten van ortolanen in de meeste EU-landen verboden, maar Frankrijk deed er meer dan twintig jaar (1999) over om het verbod over te nemen. Het verbod was natuurlijk niet naar de zin van vele fijnproevers en chefs."

"Best curry since I left South Africa": an interview with the BunnyChow Experience (Netherlands)

Menán van Heerden, BunnyChow Experience Culinair 2019-10-28

"After travelling in Europe for years, I realised that there was a huge misconception about South African cuisine. Everyone seems to be talking about our 'braai, boerewors and biltong'. Knowing how diverse South Africa is, I thought the bunny chow is the most authentic and ultimate South African dish. It tells South African history and puts South Africa in middle of the world’s revolution of that time – the international spice trade."

Marli van Eeden, Mala Bryan Interviews 2019-09-18

"Kwéyòl Restaurant is an Afro-Caribbean restaurant with dishes that I enjoy cooking and have very fond memories of. We have such a wonderful mix of cultures in the Caribbean, including Indian, Afro-Caribbean and Latin Caribbean, that there are unending dishes to choose from. I also try to mix it with some dishes from the African continent, hence the reason I call it Afro-Caribbean cuisine."

Vaalpolonie: Wat is dit?

Cliffordene Norton Culinair 2019-09-06

"Elke keer as ek enigiemand van my tuisdorp vertel, vertel ek oor die Vaalrivier, die ooptes en natuurlik die kos. Kos is vir my ’n mondvol herinneringe, en al eet ek nie meer vaalpolonie nie, koppel ek dit aan by die huis wees. Aan Barkly se strate, aan kaalvoet loop en aan lekker tye saam met my neefs en niggies."

"Where the city meets the sea"

Paul Murray Reizen 2019-09-04

"Cape Town, a seafront city, offers the visitor the finest in fish restaurants, such as La Perla in Sea Point. One late afternoon, I also took to the V&A Waterfront (Table Bay harbour), where the land and sea meet, to see what the food was like at a few of the fish restaurants at the quayside."

First restaurant with insects on the menu opens up in Cape Town

Marli van Eeden, Leah Bessa Interviews 2019-08-15

Would you eat delicacies like mopane polenta, black-fly-larvae croquettes and deep-fried dark chocolate black-fly-larvae ice cream? Insects as a food source might not be your typical idea of a scrumptious meal, but that is exactly what a new restaurant in Woodstock, Cape Town, is experimenting with – yes, insect-based dishes! Marli van Eeden interviews Leah Bessa.

Paul Murray Reizen 2019-08-13

The Rosebank Area – Johannesburg, Oxford Road

Paul Murray Reizen 2019-07-22

"Rosebank is one of Johannesburg’s most cosmopolitan areas, yet it is also very commercial. It lies in the leafy northern suburbs, on the Main Gautrain route from Pretoria to Johannesburg central. Young professionals and younger people alike enjoy it as do business persons and residents of the adjoining suburbs, Parktown, Melrose and Houghton. Its day-time life is as lively as its night-time, with cafes, bars and it even has its own flea market." Paul Murray explores the Rosebank area.

Gin en Nederlandse herkoms by Afrikaanse kunstefees gevier

Maryke Roberts Interviews 2019-07-19

"As jy gaan kyk na die afgelope paar jaar se gin-malligheid wat ook Suid-Afrika beetgepak het, kan jy nie anders as om te gaan kyk waar presies gin, of jenewer, sy oorsprong gehad het nie. Ons het natuurlik vir Nederland hiervoor te bedank." Maryke Roberts gesels met Natascha C.

A gem of a Boland town: Franschhoek

Paul Murray Reizen 2019-07-02

"It is only relatively recently that the Huguenots settled in the Franschhoek Valley. The first to arrive at the Cape was Francois Villon and his family, which was in 1671, and by 1692 a total of 201 Huguenots had settled in what was then known as the Cape of Good Hope."
