The Tripepi family love to eat at Spiga d’Oro here in Florida Road.  The food is authentic Italian and the Santoniccolo family are very special people.  The vibe is just about the best in Durban I reckon and every member of my family has their favourite item on their menu.  I love the taglietelle pescadore […]

Porchetta Arrosto – Pork Roast with Tomatoes Peppers and Anchovy with Portuguese Potatoes

This rolled Pork Roast went down a treat last night – the recipe yields a wonderful gravy which i didn’t pour over the roast for fear of softening the crackling .   The Tripepi’s just love crackling so this roast is always welcomed.  I used a de-boned and rolled shoulder roast of pork from the Dargle […]
