TIP Let the pies rest for 10 minutes in the ramekins and turn out carefully.

MEXICAN MAMPOER-MARINATED CHICKEN

Cook the drumsticks in the oven or add a distinctive smoky flavour by braaiing them over the coals.

TIP You can replace the mampoer in the marinade with tequila or, for an alcohol-free version, just leave it out.

BRANDY-BASTED T-BONE STEAKS

The steaks are coated in a deliciously sticky braai sauce, which works equally well as a basting sauce for chicken or pork.

TIP Replace the brandy with strong rooibos tea if you prefer.

CHENIN-STEAMED MUSSELS

A seafood classic gets its South African flavour from local wine and a touch of masala.
