Celebrating Nelson Mandela With Oxtail And Samp

According to the cookbook, Ukutya Kwasekhaya: Tastes from Nelson Mandela’s Kitchen by Xoliswa Ndoyiya, the personal chef of Nelson Mandela, the late president had a preference for simple, traditional food. One of his favourites was oxtail and in celebration of Mandela Day on 18 July, Chef Christiaan Visser suggests this recipe for Oxtail with samp and recommends you enjoy it with a refreshing carrot and pineapple salsa.

Leopard’s Leap Welcomes A New Cub In The Litter Called Pardus

Pardus is the Latin for panther or leopard and of course a fitting name for a new addition to the Leopard’s Leap collection of wines. For me, though, this red blend is more than a new option in our range. Not only was it born from a desire to make my own wine again, but it also acknowledges a lifelong commitment to the protection of our natural treasures – especially through our support of the Cape Leopard Trust and the plight of the vulnerable Cape Mountain Leopard.

The secret to really unique, and flavourful pickles lie is in the spices add to the brine. Carrots become more exotic when pickled with mustard seeds, Pimento, apple cider and bay leaves.
