As the name would suggest, this dish goes hard on the sesame flavor. Just like Chinese Chicken Burgers, it isn’t an authentic Chinese dish but has been popularized by Asian American restaurants. Sesame chicken isn’t usually marinaded, although some recipes do call for a brief soak in sesame oil and soy sauce.


Who does not like a proper Cheese Burger? Leopard’s Leap Cheese Burgers on the Braai are easy to make with only a few pantry staples, a generous slice of Cheddar and of course, a glass of Leopard’s Leap wine!

When the weather’s warm and the sun is shining, a lighter Sunday lunch is in order. Get a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids from this divine salmon dish. While it might sound ideal to cook the fat out of a fish, remember that the omega 3 fatty acids found in high concentrations in salmon are extremely healthy, and contribute to salmon’s great texture and flavour.


Summer is back in sunny South Africa! Longer days and warmer nights mean spending more time outdoors. Alfresco dining calls for summer recipes that can be served in any outdoor setting.


During Easter, lamb is a favourite ingredient in kitchens all over the world. But there is more to lamb than a dish fit for the Easter table.


Asian flavours are popular for beautifully balancing saltiness with sweetness, acidity, bitterness and even some heat. They are, however, tricky to partner with wine. The 2021 Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc from La Motte in Franschhoek, South Africa, is an excellent partner to the complexities of these pork and prawn dumplings.


Easter lunch with a difference! A rich, spicy curry followed by a cleansing frozen berry dessert, paired with Pilsner Urquell and Castle Milk Stout – perfect for that in-between autumn season.
