The Man in the Kitchen’s Recipe Stash

If a recipe is posted on the blog, it will be listed here as well. Since our synapses tend to fire differently, and we therefore use different hooks to recall something from memory, I’ve used a multi-category system of classification, so you’ll be able to look for recipes by name, principal ingredients, dish type (starter, main, dessert), cooking method (roasted, casseroled, braaied, etc.), country of origin if applicable. Further classifications will emerge over time I am sure.

Each major classification will be listed on a separate page, all of which will be accessible from here. I’ll start off with the first listing, Alphabetical by name, and the other category pages will grow over time.

Recipes: Alphabetical by name – listed by name, which will usually (but not only) indicate principal ingredient.

Recipes: alphabetical by principal ingredients (A recipe may be listed more than once here.)

Recipes: Alphabetical by type (Starter, main, dessert, cake, bread, etc.)

Recipes: Alphabetical by cooking method

Recipes: Alphabetical by country of origin

    Dear Norman

    I was busy looking for the email address for the Bolander when stumbling across this scrumptious site of yours! This is where to browse when needing that special, fast and furious jummy something for our hungry Seven!

    Thank you for this little gem.

    Kind Regards

      Why thank you, Zita. I will be posting around 180 recipes over the next few months, so keep an eye on the site. Better still, register as a user and you can be informed whenever I do a post.

    Dear Norman
    I have been waiting for you to put your “Sensational, spicy tomato soup” published on 30 September, 2009. on this blog for months. the archives ony go back to October 2009. When you said that you would be putting a recipe a day on your site, I became quite excited as I have filed most of your recipes. Unfortunately since this notification, I have not noticed any new recipes on your index. As I have mentioned before, the snails eat my post if I don’t remove it pronto, so some of my filed recipes have lots of holes eaten in them, so I am not sure of the ingredients or method and would like to make this soup now that it has become cold. I would appreciate a copy on your blog, or e-mailed to me. I see only the alphabetically by name link to recipes works, none of the other categories, so it would be better to remove these links until you get so far to complete them.
    Thanks, Felicity Allwright

      I am still awaiting the recipe for “Sensational, spicy tomato soup”. I was hoping that you would send it to me soon, but it is more than 4 months since I wrote to ask for it and I am still waiting. Do send it to me soon please, or put it on your Archive which unfortunately starts a month after this recipe saw the light of day.
      Holding thumbs I might get it now before Christmas.
      Best wishes, Felicity Allwright

    Dear Felicity,
    I am red-faced with embarrassment! I’ve emailed the spicy tomato soup recipe to you. I’m off to the US for five weeks, on November 1, and will turn my attention to updating Man in the Kitchen with all my recipes, once I return.

    I would be very pleased to see your recipes updated reguarly. I would like to see all of them from the inception of your recipes in 2007. I have been looking regularly and awaiting recipes to come on to the web since you promised to put the older recipes on a year or two ago, unfortunately without success. I am eagerly waiting for them to appear. I know that this takes a long time and you have better things to do than this, but think how wonderful you would feel if anything that has appeared in print could be accessed on the web by typing the name or going to a category of food. Even if only one old recipe appeared a week, I would be satisfied, but I think you would have to put more than this, or employ somebody to do this on your behalf before you would have caught up in a reasonable amount of time.

    Best wishes

      It is indeed my intention to go all the way back to 2007 when I first started, and my wife Eppie and I have been working on sorting through the recipes, categorising them according to meal type, principle ingredient, preparation method, etc, and excluding duplicates (for eg, I’ve done the rye bread three times with changes!). This will all help in getting them onto the web site, but the main reason we’re doing it, is to select and submit around 150 for publication in book form, something that I’m hoping to have well under way by early next year, since I now have a publisher that is very interested.

    That is great, I would love to have a book that you have written and I am sure it will be popular with readers of the Bolander, so good luck with all the hard preparatory work. I have all three of the rye bread recipes and have made one of them, though it is difficult to get rye flour in Stellenbosch and it is expensive. The local baker in Church Street also has wonderful rye bread, but it is also very expensive (I think ± R32 ea). I have also got rye dough from my local Spar and baked 2 loaves, one for myself and one for a friend. At R8 each for a large 1 kg bead, I thought it was wonderful value and not much trouble.

      I buy rye flour from Checkers in Somerset West at around R28 for 2.5kg. The product is made by Eureka Mills no the Overberg. You might want to try Checkers in Stellenbosch. I know that the Kwik Spar Fine Food & Wine in Somerset West stocks it (slightly more expensive), and I imagine that the sister store in Stellenbosch would also stock it.
      I hope this is of help in finding rye flour at a reasonable price.
      Thank you for the good wishes about the book. I’m hoping that Bolander readers at least will be interested in buying it once it is released.

    I have seen some Eureka flour in the local shops, I must look if they have rye flour as well. I don’t have a car anymore, so I have to walk everywhere I want to be, so don’t want to buy anything heavy unless it is essential. I know somebody who lives near Checkers in Somerset West, so if I go visiting, or to Vergelegen for lectures, I can pop in there and buy some.

    Best wishes

      Pick ‘n Pay also have Eureka flour at the Somerset Mall, so maybe Pick ‘n Pay in Stellies has it. The new Vergelegen Kwik Spar next to Arun place also sells Eureka products. It’s very close to the Medi Clinic.

    I am going to SW tomorrow morning, so I can go and look for it. I did see some Crushed Rye Flour at Checkers in Stellenbosch, but I was not keen to buy it and lug it up the hill with my other shopping, so it would be easier to buy when I have a lift and won’t have to carry it so far.

    Have a good weekend.

      And a good weekend to you. In Upington for Orange River Cellars annual bash. Much fun will be had.

    That sounds good, do enjoy it. I was supposed to be in the Helderberg Nature Reserve for a picnic, so now it has been moved to the Baptist Church Hall as the weather won’t be too good, pity, but we can still go to the Reserve later for a walk as they have all our names, so if the weather is not too bad, I am going to do this.
