GNOCCHI WITH BACON AND CHEESE SAUCE

This meal works very well as a substantial starter for a fancy and expansive braai meal, where the mains would be meat served with a side of vegetables or salad. However, it is a delicious recipe, quite rich, and robust enough to stand on its own as a main meal, which is how I usually enjoy it.

BEAN BOLOGNESE

My family started making spaghetti Bolognese on the fire during camping trips in Botswana and Namibia when I was a teenager. The secret to a great Bolognese sauce is to simmer it over low coals for quite a while.
