A couple of weeks ago we showed a recipe by Heston Blumenthal called Boerwors Burgers and we regret that. Why, becasue we found one here with our very own Michael Oliver on set with Liezel making his own version of a Boerewors Burger.

Adding a bit of South African style to an Amercian standard makes it our own.

You can use your preferred meat or turn them into veggie burgers. As the great Fleetwood Mac once said, "You can go your own way".

Liezel introduces us to one of her father's braai recipes. Obviously she manages to mess it up but she wouldn't be Liezel if she didn't. This reicpe will work well with most braai meats, chicken especially comes to mind.

Michael Oliver uses some interesting ingredients in this not so regular spinach salad. We are all very familiar with miso soup, the stuff you get at sushi restaurants. Well here Michael presents a recipe that includes a kind of mushroom miso omelette to go with the spinach, creating a rather different salad. The rye biscuits are also a bit left field but a great idea nonetheless.

I have no idea what Liezel van der Westhuizen was up to on Sunday but she was in a juicy mood Monday morning, on the set of Expresso, making this Bowtie Pasta salad with Michael Oliver. We’d received a tweet from @FoodWineGuru asking if we’d noticed the “beautiful wooden board”, made of Knysna Blackwood by @TheWoodStockSA. All we saw was Liezel playing with her lemon, tossing it about, fondling it and squeezing it. It was getting so dangerous Michael opted to remove the lemon from her ...
