One of the reasons I am so fond of this curry is because it reminds me of a beef dish my late father used to make. It was made with blade beef, which was prepared the night before, lightly salted but generously seasoned with freshly ground black pepper and slow cooked, not a single minute rushed. Such care was always taken when he cooked beef, to ensure that the meat was tender and would literally just fall off the bone. But no matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to recreate it the way he did! However, I drew on his adoration and love of beef with this recipe instead and my heritage as a meat-loving South African!

Diversity is something South Africans know all about, but perhaps we don’t know as much about the diversity of pasta! How do you decide whether you want to cook long limbed linguine or charming farfalle? What is the difference between penne and fusilli? What is the meaning of lovely sounding names like orecchiette or tortellini? And have you ever heard about garganelli or cappelletti?

 

Leopard’s Leap has recently been acknowledged as an honouree in the 2020 Wine & Food Tourism Awards for its Authentic South African Experience.

Pap is a South African staple. Much more than a traditional breakfast, this polenta-like dish is often enjoyed with meat and sauce, whether it is a juicy onion and tomato stew or another South African favourite, chakalaka.
