The long weekend has arrived! Time to breath out, relax and have your foodie fun. Prepare yourselves for a weekend of family, friends and, of course… food.

Celebrate the beginning of the weekend with a big glass of wine, cosy fire, loved ones and a bowl of sumptuous seafood risotto, your cup will surely runneth over.

Prepare your heart for the weekend to come and kick-start the day with a healthy Thai pineapple shake.

Pull on your Springbok jerseys, hold your South African flags high and light those coals. Support our boys in green and gold with a traditional South African braai.

Toss together some colourful salads such as this asparagus and pasta salad with cashew nuts and a bright red leafy beetroot salad. And don't forget the creamy potato salad!

Instead of the usual wors and chops, try out this tasty char-grilled sirloin with café de Paris butter and marinated grilled fish.

Complete your meal with a sticky and gooey malva pudding, with ice cream on the side.

Celebrate National Woman’s day by sleeping in. Leave this delicious flapjack recipe on your partner’s pillow, they will take the hint and bring you a scrumptious breakfast in bed.

Warm up with a lunch of bean soup with cheese dumplings.

For dinner throw together a mouth-watering apricot chicken potjie.

Enjoy a wonderful relaxing lie-in on your day off, and as you will only get out of bed at lunch time, make it a veggielicous one. This African vegetable stir-fry with sweet potato crisps or this brinjal spinach bake with three cheeses , are both great vegetarian meals.

End off your weekend with a big bacon and goat's cheese pizza while watching your favourite movie.
