Clover - Family Christmas cooking with Clover


Clover has been bringing their Way BetterTM products into the South African kitchen and helping families create healthy, flavour-filled Christmas feasts for more than 100 years. The traditional family favourites, like crumbling mince pies and scrumptious Christmas cakes can all be made with that homey touch using Clover’s dairy products.

 â€œThe sounds of excited children opening up their Christmas presents, the smells of a home-cooked meal in the kitchen, the feeling of being together and celebrating families… this is what Christmas is all about,” says Fathi ‘Coco’ Reinarhz, award winning, Belgian master chef and judge of Clover Little big Cook Off Series 1. “My favourite part of Christmas is definitely the food – the preparation, the cooking and the eating! My family uses Clover products in our meals, and Christmas is no exception.”

For years, Clover has given families fun ways to use their products and this year we’ve collected a gastronomical fiesta for the festive season that can all be made on a stovetop. Visit for a number of delicious recipes. Try the braised lamb shanks from the Way BetterTM family (; or take a peek at the new Clover Little Big Cook Off Recipe book, that includes scrumtuous recipes made for families by families. The book will shortly be available in leading book stores across SA.

“From being part of the Little Big Cook Off I picked up new recipes – like Team Sugar and Spice’s vanilla custard made with Mmmilk,” Coco comments.

Clover’s Amasi offers a delicious flavour and creamy texture to traditional pap and their fresh and sour cream is perfect for that scrumptious potato bake – let the kids be in charge of the measuring and mixing! If you prefer the cold meals, a selection of cheeses can complement every palette and don’t forget to dunk your home-made cookies in Clover’s fresh full cream milk!

Christmas can be stressful with kids, parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins coming over to visit. This year why not pick up a pack of Clover butter or a bottle of Clover Amasi and whisk the whole family into the kitchen to help you instead? From gingerbread biscuits to smooth mashed potatoes, anything is possible with a little imagination, a lot of Clover and plenty of Christmas music.
