I love the crunchy bits of skin .... and the cheeks.

Fresh Panga Fish on the Braai with a Peperonata Sauce.

TrickyRicky and I are dieting!  It’s like living in a home that is in mourning …. Tricky reminds me that the word DIET is made up of two parts … Die …. With a T on the end!  It’s really difficult to keep a Tripepi on the straight and narrow when it comes to dieting.  […]

Hot Off the Coals: Braai’d Fresh Line Fish with Roasted Vine Tomatoes and Salmoriglio.

I was so desperate to get back onto the internet that I went and purchased a 3G modem! Can you believe this? My useless service provider, namely iBurst, was offline in Durban for 4 days! Oh my madumbi’s the profanities that came flying out of TrickyRicky’s office were constant and got progressively worse! It’s impossible […]

A Tagine of Baby Chickens with Saffron, Green Olives and Preserved Lemons served with Couscous

Tino-the-claw-Tripepi has his ways. He is an impressive 14years old now and if he were to be kissed by a fairy tale princess he would *POEF *, turn into that grumpy old man, the late Walther Matthau. He is basically full of ‘kitty-kak’. I think that he has feline Alzheimer’s, for one moment he is […]

Surf and Turf Fillet Steaks a la Tripepi

Surf and Turf Fillet Steak with a Creamy Mushroom Sauce and Parmesan Mash

Summer is around the corner me beauties – and while little miss sunshine flirts shamelessly with us, flashing her sexy long legged rays knowing full well that she’s working us up into a vitamin D challenged frenzy, we are starting to stock up on summer accoutrements. We braai’d last Sunday – we just couldn’t actually […]

Kudu Fillet Burger with Monkeygland Sauce

Kudu Fillet Burger …..

  This is very much a tried and tested Tripepi favourite. Whenever I can get my hands on some Kudu fillet I make burgers. Burgers are more of a summer dish in our house though – my mind expects not only to smell a wood fire burning but the summery aroma cocoa butter suntan lotion, […]

Kudu Burgers …. South Africa’s Beautiful Venison at it’s Best!

As you all know I feed a household of Italian men! Not the easiest task in as much as, if the meal isn’t Italian enough, I get those sideways looks!   But when I make hamburgers – they just beam – I am guaranteed happy smiley faces if I grace our dinner table with venison burgers […]

Use Your Loaf …. Veggie Stuffed Loaf of Bread on the Braai ….. Pane Ripieno al Fuoco.

Oh! How many ways do I love thee …….. My husband – and indeed his whole extended Tripepi family, wouldn’t dream of throwing a piece of mouldy or spoilt bread away without first planting a kiss on it. This mostly relates to the fact that Holy Communion in church – Our Daily Bread – The […]

It’s the most beautiful day here on the East Coast – Spring has Sprung, the air feels like Champagne and it’s the weekend. It’s moments like this I just love – a whole two days lay sprawled at my feet and I am in the mood to cook. I’m off to go and check out […]

Thai Peanut Chicken Satay, Egg Fried Rice and Coconut Rice Pudding!

It’s been a busy weekend in glorious KZN. With temperatures soaring, mother sun shone down on us all weekend leaving a pink glow on whatever she touched. The men all humba-buggered off to throw their money at race horses and I was left alone at home. You would have thought that two models were preparing […]
