Bunnies, Book Club and Currying Favours; Re-creating Iconic Durban Bunny Chow

Updated: Feb 21, 2020

I’ve been trying to ingratiate myself with Beth so she'll invite me on some of the fabulous, off the beaten path travels of hers. No such luck! She does, however, invite me to cook for her, replicating some of the delicious meals she has sampled on her many trips. I benefit how, you ask? I get menu suggestions that lead to incredible conversations that spice up my life. Not exactly plane fare and a five star hotel, but I’ll take it.


Beth’s recent trip to Durban, South Africa, yielded me a new cooking experience; curry. I’m not a fan of spicy food and have never tried to make a curry. But this was fun fare to attempt and serve to my willing book club taste testers. I settled on an easy curry recipe for a Durban standard, Bunny Chow.
