The May issue has arrived!

Legendary local cooks Zola Nene, Ina Paarman, Dorah Sitole and Reuben Riffel give credit to their moms and share their most treasured recipes – such as our May cover recipe, venison pie from Ina Paarman. Ina inherited this recipe from her late mother, Nellie Jooste, otherwise known as the pastry champion in their family.

Winter is coming and we’re (b)raising the game – because greatness should not be rushed. Oxtail, cassoulet and ragù are just a few of the stellar dishes that form part of our slow-cooked line-up.

We get a glimpse of a Mother’s Day brunch from celeb chef Siba Mtongana, as she reveals how she plans to spoil her mom with some of her favourite dishes this Mother’s Day (including mini pavlovas that you will definitely want to steal for your own mom).

Hope Malau’s cookbook Johanne 14 is both a tribute to the food of his childhood and the resourceful spirit of our nation… Want to win a copy? Enter here. We also have a number of other prizes up for grabs, including five Espresto hampers and Phillippa Cheifitz’s new cookbook, Make it Easy.


Haven’t quite found the perfect Mother’s day gift yet? Allow us to point out the obvious: your mom would absolutely LOVE a subscription to TASTE (it’s only R28* an issue). If you’re quick enough on the draw you might even win one of three Woolies’ gift cards worth R1 000 each.

*Offer limited to SA. Please allow time for processing and delivery. Offer ends 28 May 2017.

Happy cooking!
