Melkkos the Garden Route

Melkkos the Garden Route

This is a very nice light meal for a cold or rainy day. It is so deliciously light and fluffy a real comfort food.. Delicious!

“Melkkos”, which directly translates to Milkfood, is a South African classic and more particularly an Afrikaans tradition of sorts.

There are many variations of the recipe, and two main variations of the dish as far as I am aware. “Melkkos” is the one I grew up with. It is made by rubbing butter into flour which then gets cooked in milk. It produces a smooth porridge of sorts, with a few lumps here and there.

“Melksnysels” is the other variation. It is made by making a dough out of flour, egg and a little milk which then gets rolled flat and cut into strips (similar to making pasta by hand), which in turn gets cooked in milk.

Renette’s Candles

Handmade candles the Garden Route

In 1987 I first created these amazing candles. Now Johan Nel and I are recreating them at our Lake Brenton home in Knysna. I am dedicating them to Johan and making them in honour of the hero in everyone. You are welcome to place orders. We send them all over the world to bring Light and abundance into the lives of those they touch!
