Fill the Cookie Tins with Chef Mynhardt Joubert

Fill the Cookie Tins with Chef Mynhardt Joubert
Tuesday 15 November
It’s that time of the year when we want to start filling the cookie tins for the festive season! Chef Mynhardt Joubert joins us in the kitchen with a masterclass on how to make the ultimate fruit cake, as well as how to gift a fruit cake for someone special in your life.
Remember to head over to our socials to join in on the conversation, telling us what your ultimate cookie is.
Apricot Jam Squares is definitely a South African family classic. The most important tip for baking this treat is to measure out your ingredients correctly. If the ratio of flour to butter is off, the cookies might be hard and tough.
There’s no denying that Chef Mynhardt is the king of the fruit cake! He gives us a first-hand look at how he creates his signature Free State Fruitcake. Enjoy this family recipe that smells and tastes of home. Later, he gives a tutorial on how to package and gift a fruit cake.
Spicy Thumbprint Cookies are next on the menu. Inspired by spices that are reminiscent of Cape Malay desserts, they’re perfect for filling those cookie jars (but we can’t promise just how long they will last).
Fasten your seatbelts as we bring you our version of a quick and delicious Rocky Road made with Bakers Choice Assorted.
Palesa and Panado share A Dose of Care with Alicia Solomons.
The last recipe is for Pali and those of us who don’t have the sweetest tooths, Spicy Butter Chicken with Cranberry Salsa. Pro tip: add about 1 teaspoon of sugar or baking soda when cooking with tomatoes, this will help to cut through the acidity of the tomato flavour.
