This is a hyperlinked index of the weekly recipes we have published in MENU over the years. We update it constantly as new recipes are published. It is arranged by types of food and, sometimes, by style or country of origin, so some recipes appear in more than one category

In many of these recipes, you will see references to Main Ingredient, the award-winning speciality food and wine shop we used to own in Sea Point. The shop closed in 2010, but we have kept the references which are part of our history. They date back as far as 2003, so if you see a price mentioned, it may be very old and difficult to believe
