South African Hertzoggies recipe

South African Hertzoggies recipe

A virtual visit to South Africa calls for more South African snacks. Because we can’t possibly head on safari or visit all out favourite haunts without bringing our tastebuds along for the ride. And with a 2pm AEST start for today’s sofa safari, coinciding with afternoon tea, we thought it was time to whip up […] Read more…

Sri Lankan Egg hoppers

A Sri Lankan-style breakfast is amongst the greatest meals this asbestos-tongued foodie has had the pleasure of meeting and eating. And, in my opinion, the undisputed stars of this Sri Lankan morning show are Sri Lankan egg hoppers.

Indigenous experiences in Canberra

Falls Creek Resort with Kids

There’s a distinct chill in the air and that only means one thing at Casa Eats World! Nagging. Incessant freakin’ nagging!

My […] Read more…

South African samoosa recipe

South African Samoosa Recipe

You say samosa, I say samoosa. At least I do after our latest visit to Cape Town, where we shovelled the little golden triangles of savoury spiced goodness down our throats at every conceivable opportunity. The samosa, originally introduced to India between the 13th and 14th centuries by Arab traders as the sambosa, made its […] Read more…

South African Melktert (milk tart)

Sabi Sabi’s South African Melktert

Busy piling a tower of cake on her plate, Sugarpuff nearly loses the lot at a sudden unexpected trumpeting that emanates from beyond our afternoon tea buffet. A parade of noisy elephants is lumbering at speed toward Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge’s inviting waterhole, with a couple of tiny (by elephant standards) tots in tow. While […] Read more…
