Christmas Baking Recipes

"Memorable, happy-childhood flavours"
I'm ringing the changes and giving you two columns during December. They are about festive-season recipes so cannot be published on the last Saturday of the month as is usual. I shall showcase six recipes today and another six next Saturday - December 22, 2012.
So, if you happen to miss either of these copies of The Witness, I suggest you beg, borrow or steal to get your hands on some really interesting and mouth-watering ideas. Better still... diarise a to-do note for yourself to ensure you're up there with the rest of the readers!
The format I have chosen is to highlight the 12 days before Christmas and start with what needs to be done first, working down to the last-minute items which have to be done on the day - the final preparations and putting everything together.
I hope these recipes provide you with as much fun and as much inspiration as they have given me; and that you enjoy the South African twist to each dish. They are all memorable, happy-childhood flavours that I wish to share with you.
It's an exciting time so enjoy choosing your Christmas tree and putting up the decorations. I haven't heard Boney M yet!
To my fellow chefs, and others in the hospitality industry, prepare for a busy time. It can get quite chaotic - I know!
Remember to buy next week's copy of The Witness. I'll be back to complete the 12 days.
Take these recipe and try them!
