The Cook with Biltong Club: Biltong, strawberry and mascarpone blinis

A heatwave has hit London…hooray. So it’s time for some summery food. Today I was inspired to make some biltong blinis using the beautifully juicy English strawberries that are around at the moment.

The Cook with Biltong Club: biltong, broad beans and garlic

It’s time for my monthly recipe using my favourite ingredient: biltong. This dish was inspired by a beautiful ham and broad bean starter I’ve eaten in restaurants in Spain. I thought, if ham, why not biltong? It worked beautifully. And you don’t just have to take my word for it. My ever-keen South African neighbours came […]
