MoTV, an onboard television station that broadcasts local content on various bus lines across the country was launched this past week in Gaborone. Entertaining passengers with either music or movies is not a new scene to local bus lines; the trend was very popular in the late 90s but somehow it slowly got phased out and ultimately died within a few years.

SWEET FIX

3rd November 2017

It is surprising how little time it takes to prepare our family satisfying favorites as Madeira flapjacks, cheese cakes, chocolate cakes, brownies, cupcakes, rock cakes and fruit cakes not to mention the list is endless. Like larger cakes needs to be complemented with nuts for example pecan, hazelnuts ,almonds macadamia also fruits like strawberries, peaches, pears, grapes and cherries however dozens ways in which fruits can be used as the basics in bakes. Thanks to modern transportation systems, the range of unusual and exotic fruits available in supermarkets seem to expand every week. There is also a range of common cake flavors like coconut, vanilla, ginger and my favorite cocoa powder which gives a strong chocolate flavor. It is already sweetened and does not require cooking, the resulting is less chocolatey.

FISH AND SHELLFISH

27th October 2017

There are so many flavors and textures available that the possible combinations are endless. White fish haddock, cod and turbot are widely available and easy to cook. Shellfish too are low key in fat yet flavorful and can be cooked in variety of creative mouthwatering ways especially in my kitchen, as I prefer white and red meat of course for health benefits. Some fish such as tuna, salmon, mackerel and trout are very oily and should be eaten in moderation as they are rich in fat soluble vitamins A and D. However, it is also believed the oil in these fish is beneficial in breaking down the cholesterol in the blood stream. In my recipe below, you can use any large fish fillet or steaks such as ling, gemfish, snapper, kingfish, or silver warehou.
