Blomkool, klein mielies…bedien buns saam met dit wat vinnig in die oond crispy gemaak is, doop souse, steak, hoender repies, kaas stukkies, kaas worsies, crumbed chicken strips, mushrooms, crumbed mushrooms..en sjokolade fondue vir poeding! 🙂

Ansebe van Niekerk Nou ja in onse ouers se dae het hul mos altyd die steak blokkie, visballetjie en hoender “nugget’ gehad. Het nou die dag ons stofie ens. uitgehaal en toe sommer hoenderborsie in lang dun repe gesny en met suurlemoen en chilli flakes gemarineer. Dan ‘wurm’ jy dit op jou vurkie – heerlik. En ook worsie in klein stukkie bacon toegedraai werk ook lekker. Vriendin bring toe gebakte aartappels daar aan. Lekker afwisseling toe dink ek as mens die aartappel half gaar maak, kan jy hom ook op jou vurkie braai. En dan natuurlik al die doopsouse!! Lekker avodip en my gunsteling: ek meng 2 eetl kondensmelk, 2 eetl mayo, 2 eetl gladde maaskaas en 2 eelt wit uiesop poeier. Meng als en los v 2 ure – heerlik!!!!x

Madelein Smith Die tradisionele Swiss Cheese fondue’s is heerlik…jy smelt 50/50 emmenthsler en gruyere, meng dit met bietjie kirsch waswer (optineel) en dip brood daarin. Dis heerlik! die brood kan natuurlik met enige iets anders ook vervang word

Fondue with Meat and/or Vegetables
Meat for Fondue

STEAK
1 kg beef fillet steak
4 t (20 ml) Ina Paarman’s Meat Spice
2 T (30 ml) olive oil
Cube the steak into 2cm x 2cm blocks. Season and toss with olive oil. Leave at room temperature for at least an hour before cooking. These will cook very quickly – warn your guests.

CHICKEN
6 chicken breast fillets
2 t (10 ml) Ina Paarman’s Chicken Spice
2 T (30 ml) olive oil
Cut the breasts into 1½ cm strips across the grain,double over and spear onto kebab sticks. Leave at room temperature for at least an hour before cooking. These are delicious dipped into the beer batter(recipe follows) before cooking. The batter also protects the chicken from overcooking

Ella Brandt

HOW TO COOK MEAT AND VEGETABLES
Use one wok (or two fondue pots) and allocate 2 fondue forks and/or metal skewers per person.
2 x 750 ml canola oil
Warm the oil just before everyone is ready to start cooking. Ideal temperature would be 170ºC-180ºC. The guests skewer cubes of meat and/or vegetables onto their fondue forks and cook them for a few minutes before dipping the cooked morsels into the sauce of their choice. We have also given you a delicious batter recipe to dip the chicken and vegetables in, before cooking. If you do not have many small dishes to give each guest their own selection of sauces, they can simply spoon sauces directly onto their plates. Salads can be dished onto dinner plates.

Ella Brandt

TIPS FOR THE NOVICE
As soon as the food is cooked it is transferred to your dinner plate with the regular fork. Raw ingredients are once again skewered on the fondue fork and while frying, the cooked food is dipped in or coated with sauce and eaten with the salad accompaniments of your choice. Garlic bread is always a welcome addition.

Vegetables for Fondue
You can simplify or elaborate on this, but select at least three vegetables from the options given below. Do not omit the baby potatoes, they are always a hit.

BABY POTATOES
750 g baby potatoes
1 T (15 ml) Ina Paarman’s Potato Spice
3 T (45 ml) olive oil
Cook the unpeeled potatoes until just done. Cool and cut into halves through the waist. Season and toss with olive oil – leave at room temperature until serving time.

MUSHROOMS
1 small punnet of baby button mushrooms
1 x 300 g punnet portabellini mushrooms
Ina Paarman’s Garlic Pepper Seasoning
Wipe the mushroom caps with a damp cloth and cut the portabellini’s in half. Leave at room temperature until cooking time. Season just before cooking otherwise they draw too much water. Delicious if dipped in batter just before cooking.

BABY CORN/BUTTERNUT CUBES
1 punnet baby corn and/or ½ small butternut, cubed
2 t (10 ml) Ina Paarman’s Potato Spice or Green Onion Seasoning
2 T (30 ml) olive oil
2 T (30 ml) chopped parsley
Keep the corn whole but cut the butternut into small cubes. Season and toss with oil and parsley. Leave to stand at room temperature until cooking time. Can be dipped in batter just before

Ella Brandt

BABY TOMATOES
1 x 500 g punnet baby rosa tomatoes
6 fresh rosemary twigs
Ina Paarman’s Rosemary & Olive Seasoning
Spear the tomatoes onto wooden skewers through the stem end. Arrange in a bowl with the rosemary. Prepare two small dipping bowls with our Rosemary & Olive Seasoning for your guests to dip their briefly cooked tomatoes in.

BABY MARROWS/ASPARAGUS
1 punnet baby marrows and/or asparagus
2 t (10 ml) Ina Paarman’s Lemon & Black Pepper Seasoning
grated rind of one lemon
Cut the washed marrows into 2 cm long lengths and cut the asparagus across in half. Season and toss with lemon rind. Leave to stand at room temperature until time to cook. The seasoning will wilt the marrows a little which removes any bitterness and excess water. Delicious if dipped in batter before cooking.
BEER BATTER
A light and fluffy batter, ideal to coat chicken and vegetable bites. Instead of beer, use soda water for a non-alcoholic variation. It is best to make the batter well in advance to give the flour time to swell. Fold the beaten egg white in just before needed as this gives extra lightness.
1 cup (250 ml) cake flour
1 t (5 ml) Ina Paarman’s Seasoned Sea Salt
1 egg yolk
1 T (15 ml) oil
1 cup (250 ml) beer or soda water
1 egg white
Mix all the ingredients except the egg white in a food processor or with a whisk. Just before use, fold in the stiffly beaten egg white. Dip chicken and vegetables in the batter. Drip off excess batter and deep-fry in wok or fondue pot.

Jy kan ook n degie wat dikker as pannekoekdeeg is maak en neersit sodat mense hul groente daarin kan doop en dan bak.  Ek hou nie van die groente bv net so gaargemaak in olie nie en dis heerlik jy kan enige groente in die degie maak en jy het ook sommer jou stysel by: degie: – 1 koppie bruismeel, 1 eier en halwe blikkie bier,  meng goed, sout en peper en speserye na smaak

Ek maak gewoonlik die volgende: Goulash vleisie (goedkoper as steak), hoender borsies in blokkies, kaas worsies, bacon om ‘n cherrie vas gesteek met ‘n tandestokkie, baby aartappeltjies (blikke wat reeds gaar is – braai dan net crispy), bro…od blokkies, peppadews met kaas blokkies in, mushrooms. Dan kan jy net ‘n lekker kaas sousie en ‘n mushroom sousie daar by hê sodat die mense dit daarin kan dip (sommer daai pakkies wat jy met kookwater aanmaak) Komkommer repiers, baby tamaties, wortel stokkies, gurgens etc kan ook in ‘n bak neergesit word om tussen deur aan te pesel – net ‘n afwisseling. ENJOY!!!
