Fruit slaw

The Stone Fruit season is well on its way and what better way to celebrate long summer days than with fresh and delicious peaches, plums and nectarines that bring colour and vitality to any dish.

Think health and beauty in sumptuous fruit when planning your next get together – whether it’s a birthday, wedding, family gathering, a Christmas feast or just a traditional braai. Versatile and tasty, this Stone Fruit Slaw made by South African filmmaker, chef and TV personality, Justin Bonello, is the perfect way to enjoy nature’s take-away gems and add abundant flavour to your table.

Buon appetito!

With nothing but a suitcase full of dreams and her faithful friend ‘the cello’, Cecilia Di Cecco left Italy to work as a musician with the KZNPO in Durban. Here she learnt to cultivate her music and at the same time began a love affair with food that eventually led to the recent launch of her first cookbook, Cucina in South Africa.
