Sides
Blakes Menu comprises favourite or traditional
British dishes to which we have added a modern
twist. In most cases we have stayed true to the
original recipes, some of which date as far back as
the 18th century. In other cases we have included
items which simply take us back to yesteryear, or
our childhoods, when, whether living in South
Africa or the British Isles, some of these dishes
were simply a part of life.
