“South Africa is an exotic destination and people want to know what we eat locally, so we shouldn’t try to be too clever with our cooking. I believe in South African produce and I like to showcase the incredible array of ingredients in my dishes.”
Reuben Riffel, head chef at Reuben’s Restaurant, Franschhoek, South Africa
All of us are conscious about getting our 5 portions of fruit and veg a day but fitting this into a busy routine is not always as simple as it sounds. Of course, it is really easy to grab a South African apple, for example, out of the fruit bowl to snack on during the day, but why stop there? South African fruit is so versatile and they make great additions to both sweet and savoury dishes. Why not try the South African fruit challenge and include a different South African fruit in each meal of the day?
