Pumpkin tart for dessert

On 15 February’s episode of Jy het ’n Wenresep! On VIA (DStv channel 147) brothers Burger and Alwyn tried to impress Huisgenoot’s Carmen Niehaus with their different recipes. Alwyn made a chicken dish which he learnt how to make while living abroad, and Burger stayed within their family recipes by making their mother’s pumpkin tart as a dessert. Theresa’s yellow tale with sesame seed made the judging difficult for Carmen.
