Delish for a Christmas dinner or a Christmas gift

Sheila Swanepoel brings us delicious homemade delicacies, such as: 

Romesco Olives, tapenades, salsa, pesto - and the most divine Sicilian Dipping Sauce,  which can be used as: marinade, basting chicken, condiment on the table, salads, with cheeses, baked potatoes.  The Romesco Olives Company has a factory in Howick - their kalamata olives are grown in the Cape and their green olives are imported from Greece. The olives come in 380g jars and are marinaded in extra virgin olive oil, which can be used again after you've flattened all the olives.  The tapenades etc come in 250g jars at R55.

A traditional handmade Italian dessert.  Enjoy with an espresso coffee or a glass of wine. Chocolate Salami, also known as Salame di Cioccolato or Salame Dolce, is made from a creamy mixture of dark chocolate, vanilla biscuits, butter, eggs and other fresh ingredients. Each ‘salami’ is hand rolled and beautifully wrapped. A perfect way to spoil your wedding guests or your clients when presented as a corporate gift. Although nuts are not used in this product, it may contain traces of tree nuts. No added preservatives.
Serve with ice-cream or whipped cream or berry compote drizzle.
It is best refrigerated and may be frozen. If frozen, allow at least 45 minutes to soften, to prevent crumbling. Treat your guests to a wedding favour with a difference ..... a smaller size ‘salami’ or a few slices that are beautifully wrapped and co-ordinated to the bride’s request.  Also an ideal gift for corporate functions.

A traditional liqueur from the south of Italy.  Lemon rind soaked in vodka to which sugared water is added.
Traditionally sipped slowly after a meal.   It is best served ice cold - straight from the freezer where it will not  freeze completely because of the alcohol content - a healthy 40%.  Perfect for lazy summer days when mixed with soda or water. Comes in 250ml & 500 ml bottles at R35 and R70.
