When two classic South African favourites merge, it's bound to be magical. Make a thick spread with Woolworths original free-range beef biltong, peppadews and cream cheese and slather it in freshly braaied roosterkoeks. This braai season, don't overcomplicate your sides, just focus on flavour and ease. This roosterkoek can be sliced and shared, but it's so good, we suggest making individual portions so your guests don't have to battle for the last piece.
