FROM THE TEAM

Drum Food - - FRONT PAGE - The DRUM Team

FOOD brings peo­ple to­gether. More of­ten than not, there’s food in­volved when fam­i­lies meet, we build friend­ships around the din­ner ta­ble, we of­ten gather around the braai to cheer our favourite sports teams to vic­tory, and when we cel­e­brate those great mo­ments in life, there are plat­ters and treats or huge pots of homemade love. A lot of what we love to do as South Africans in­volves food.

The recipes in DRUM Food re­flect this love of be­ing with friends and fam­ily and en­joy­ing good food. From the suc­cu­lent leg of lamb (page 20) which is per­fect for fancier gath­er­ings to the more laid-back ul­ti­mate best pizza (page 55) which works for an easy sup­per – there’s def­i­nitely some­thing for ev­ery oc­ca­sion in this magazine.

There are 110 great recipes to try: quick and easy light meals, hearty stews and cur­ries, great pies, de­li­cious pas­tas, tasty meat dishes and deca­dent sweet treats.

We love the North African dukkah spice rub on the lamb cut­lets and putu pap salad (page 19) – and it looks so invit­ing on our cover! The harira (page 49) is a de­li­cious soup and gives a taste of Morocco. There’s also a se­lec­tion of truly South African dishes – try the easy boere­wors and pap pizza (page 54), bobotie phyllo tri­an­gles (page 58), chicken liv­ers with riga­toni (page 60) and the amasi fritters (page 78).

These recipes are per­fect for shar­ing. So get your favourite peo­ple to­gether, do the things you love and en­joy ev­ery scrump­tious bite.
