Proudly South African Recipes with Mediterranean Delicacies

This summer Mediterranean Delicacies invited me to join their recipe project where content creators were invited to create their own recipe showcasing proudly South African ingredients. I LOVE Mediterranean Delicacies and often reply on their products when I’m testing out recipes or inviting friends over for snacks.

Because I’m generally quite greedy and couldn’t make up my mind, I decided to make 2 plates. The first is quick and simple ostrich salad, made up entirely by myself (hence how easy it is!). The second is more complicated, a feta stuffed peppadew and bacon quiche. I used Gordon Ramsay’s peek and pancetta quiche recipe to help me with this one. Here are the ingredients I used:
