This festive season, SA’s Michelin-star chef Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen has your back with five recipes that’ll earn you bragging rights for the next 12 months (tip: make extra mustard sauce for gifts)

KAROO LAMB ROAST WITH WHOLE APPLES AND MINT

“The richness of roast leg of lamb brings an opulence to a table that is fit for a king. As the mantra goes, low and slow is the way to go. And as the centrepiece of your main course, a roast must be nurtured to perfection. Opt for a large platter that will give all guests around the table access to the dish.”
