I’m a huge supporter of anything home-grown and food-related and in this case, it’s our very own world-class chef. Chef Jackie Cameron has been working up in the Midlands at Hartford House since 2002, and last year the incredible meals prepared at Hartford led to the establishment being listed in the top ten best restaurants in South Africa. And now you can have the opportunity to produce some of those meals at home. I have bought my own copy of this book and it’s a delight. It ranges from accessible and simple to prepare recipes for salads and muffins to the more complex but easy to understand duck confit and oxtail risotto. And speaking of the risotto, that was the dish that Hartford and Chef Jackie prepared for this year’s Taste of Durban and it was a huge hit.
Get a, ahem, taste of one of the recipes in the book by clicking on the link for this downloadable recipe PDF here: crepes filled with orange chocolate mousse. (link courtesy of Penguin Publishers)
