I love everything about the combination of these heritage dishes and the twist that we have added to each of them.  Each dish is easy to prepare and light on the budget.  You can add to your seafood pot whatever is fresh and available and make it as indulgent as you wish and it is a real crowd pleaser!  The combination of olive oil and butter ensures that is stays in a spreadable consistency and will keep for months.  The roosterkoek mix is some of the best I have ever tasted make extra and freeze for those busy weekdays so that you will always have a taste of weekend on hand!
