I’m still maintaining Patrick’s blog while he is doing his bit for the oil industry.
Patrick is without doubt the stir fry and curry expert. He finds a tried and trusted recipe and once he has mastered it. He makes it again and again. He might make mino…
Raw cracker biscuits – sweet and savoury
Very happy to be back in our kitchen in Cape Town for a while.
We have a couple of dinner parties coming up over the next few days, and I like to have a selection of snacks and cracker biscuits for guests to nibble on before the…
Raw Food Course
Last week was, I think, the first week that I haven’t put out a post.
Hopefully I will be forgiven, as Karen and I were frantically busy doing Deborah Durrant’s 5 day Raw Food course.
What a fantastic and fun week it was. We learnt such a lot, …
As promised, here is the recipe for the raw classic cheezecake.
This is the same dessert that was served up at the Raw Food seminar a while back, and I am pleased to say, I think my one turned out just as well as the pro’s one.
Raw Green Juice:
There is nothing like starting the day with a fresh healthy Green Juice, so I thought it appropriate to start off my 2016 blogs with a green juice mixture.
It’s also a fresh start from another aspect – I have just changed my blog platform over to Wordpress.
Which is also one of the reasons I have not been posting in a while.
And I am only just finding out how to work with Wordpress.
(Organic produce as far as possible!)
1 “pillow” of spinach leaves
1/2 bunch kale
Half a pineapple
handful of fresh mint sprigs

Run all the ingredients through the juicer.
Enjoy – I usually dilute the raw mixture about 2/3 juice to 1/3 water.
A few other thoughts –
This mix has a lovely subtle minty flavour.
You can sweeten it up by adding extra apple.
Of course, you can use any other greens you like.
The remaining pulp can go into the compost heap if you are lucky enough to have one.
And finally – all the best to all my readers for the new year – have a wonderfully healthy and
Patrick follows a recipe to the letter. He turns out perfect meals when he cooks. I am a super greenie and cannot bear to waste food. I open the fridge, see what has to be used up, then figure out what to make from there. Patrick has mastered currie…
Clafoutis is originally a French dish, from the Limousin area, and was traditionally made with cherries.
We are great ones for using up what we have in the fridge. So with both fresh apricots and eggs needing using up, and wanting to serve something different for our guests t…
Raw lemon, ginger and mango cheezecake
In case you hadn’t noticed, raw desserts are among my favourite things to make.
Here is another raw vegan tart that was posted recently by Deborah Durrant from Deliciously Raw.

Raw and Vegan in Cape Town
When I started this blog, my wife was a long time vegetarian while I did not eat a lot of meat.
Over the last couple of years we have moved to nearly 100% vegan and largely raw.
I love sharing recipes with you, but I also love tellin…
Berry smoothie – raw and vegan
Now for my berry smoothie.
You can of course use any berries you want, and whatever you use will of course create the colour of the smoothie.
This time I have used some soaked goji berries, among others, which give it the almost orange colour.
