I recently got some very impressive sheep tails i.e. skaapstertjies from a friend in Loeriesfontein, a small village in the Northern Cape situated in the Hantam region. This area is renowned for its sheep farming and its hospitality.
I recently got my hands on some well-priced pork tenderloin and decided to go with some Caribbean cuisine.

This is a creamy and wholesome Italian dish which is very easy and quick to prepare. The dish is said to originate from western Sicily in the 19th century with English families, where Marsala wine is produced. A heavy French influence is also suspected together with American influence in the modern version. This will probably explain why Chicken Marsala is more popular in the Unites States than Italy these days. See this article.
