Chicken Tagine And Saffron Couscous

Braai Day and, more importantly, Heritage Day calls for friends and family to gather together and cook a hearty meal on the braai. This year, break away from the traditional pap, broedtjies and vleis by trying out this chicken tagine and saffron couscous recipe from Safaris and Spices (Jacana Media), R320, by Nico Verster. Historically, a Berber Moroccan dish is cooked over hot coals, so make this your braai day surprise.

Meadow Green: Bubbly Breakfast Buffet At Its Best

Overlooking the manicured African Pride Irene Country Lodge gardens on one side and the serenity of swans gliding on a dam on the other side, Meadow Green Restaurant’s breakfast buffet is as picturesque as it is scrumptious. Offering early birds a great variety of quality breakfast items, served elegantly on crisp white tablecloths, Meadow Green’s bubbly breakfast buffet is definitely one of the best the Jacaranda City has to offer.
