Thank you for the recipes Anna. It sound delicious. Perfect for a cold winters day.

Thanks Marinda – very easy to make and can freeze well as well!

One year away–next July!

I’ll have it waiting Vin!

I’m a big fan of braised short ribs, and this sounds like something to have a go at. Thank you.

Thanks Doug – it’s a delicious dish and can keep a few days as well!

Dear Anna, thanks for your great recipes! I love the food of Londolozi and here is another yummy dish I will certainly try out at home.

Thank you Christa – hope to see you again soon! Enjoy this deliciousness

This looks SO yummy! Can’t wait to make it. Will be with you next winter. Can’t wait to have it and see you and everyone again. All the best!

Thanks Bob & Lucie – we also can’t wait to make it for you and see you both again!

Hi Anna
Going to have a go at this but can you clarify the weights of the spare ribs and butter for the mash

HI John
The weight for the shortrib is 1.5kg which is 3.30lbs
The butter for the seriously delicious mash is 454g which is +- 1 lb
Hope that helps – let me know 🙂


It honestly is!

Love braised short ribs- will have to try your version. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you Denise – let me know how it works out!

I’m giving you long distance applause for these two delightful recipes that I WILL make! Both sound delicious and mouth watering. My thanks for sharing, Anna.

Thank you Joanne – i look forward to hearing how you enjoyed them!

Looks delicious !

Anna, we are going to try the recipe! It will probably work well on our annual Londolozi monthly menu at our restaurant! Love following your blogs! Maybe it’s time for a cookbook!! 😉

Hi Anna, we cooked this today for our dinner. It was darker than your photos, but the flavor was sensational. We now wish we could go out for an evening spotlight Safari. Will just have to settle for wombats and kangaroos in the yard. Looking forward to our visit next July. Xx Bill, Sandy and Annette from Australia

Thank you Annette! So glad it turned out so delicious!

One question, were we supposed to use the stock cubes made up with water or just left? There isn’t any water mentioned in the recipe . Cheers A

Hello Ms. Anna! Love these recipes and that you are sharing your marvelous talented recipes. Thank you! So being on Covid lock down in South Florida, summer time is hot & humid. Would you kindly share some of your light and refreshing starters, such as your mouth watering fig & cheese recipe. Wink! 🙂

Looks and sounds so delicious, thank you for sharing your recipe!

In lockdown in Ireland. Thinking of all that fabulous food surrounded by fantastic people and beautiful scenery. Take care and stay safe.

I HAD A GREAT STAY AT LONDOLOZI. GREAT FOOD as always with Relais Chateaux Dining. The history on the development of the properties is exciting, The location is superb and some of the best game drives, community projects and involvement for sustainability I have witnessed. Would love to get back soon!
