Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!

I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...

After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and

we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or

South Africa.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....

Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko

Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Weekend Snapshot No. 25

The South African Garden Route is full of wonderful places and Restaurants.
One with a long history and a speciality is "The Oyster Company" on Thesen Island in Knysna.
The oldest and biggest oyster farm in South Africa.
If you love oysters this is the place to be.
Fresh oysters (both wild and cultivated),you will find some unusual ways to prepare this delicacy.
For example African Oysters deep-fried and served on a bed of spinach and mielie pap topped with tomato relish and garnished with corn and biltong.....
But even if you are not into Oysters there is still a good selection of other seafood, as well as chicken, venison and steaks.
