Oh I'm glad you are running this series again - it's great. I visited cape town a few years ago and think it is probably the most naturally beautiful city in the world.


I've got some real fond memeories of Cape Town from my travels there back in 2006 and I'm annoyed with myself that I can't seem to remember many of the details!

Bobotie is absolutely wonderful though - something I've not dared to cook myself in case I don't do it justice!!!

Andrew -


That's one impressive culinary city snapshot!!! I love the sound of granadilla pulp - the fresh fruit are so damned expensive here, so a jar of pulp would be great for topping Pavlovas and cheesecakes..


:) we just came back from a vacation in SA last week. Cape Town and Franschhoek are absolutely one of the best places we've visited and a culinary delight. Oh what a blast we had with the food! And the bobotie...OMG, the bobotie...we tried it in almost every restaurant that featured it!!


Out of all the foods of South Africa, Bilton is arguably the best as well as the most unique - it's very different stuff to American beef jerky most people try to compare it to. However if you are buying it or making it you need to make sure it's good quality. Some really old recipies ask for "saltpetre" which has been shown to be bad for human health and should be avoided.
