Hey lovelies. If you haven’t spotted its gorgeous, feel-good, appealing, colourful cover in the bookshops yet, let me introduce you to The Great South African Cookbook (published by Quivertree). Sixty-seven local luminaries, from chefs to home cooks to gardeners, bakers, foragers and celebrity foodies have shared their favourite recipes as well as offering a glimpse into their lives and homes, and the results are a delight. The mix of recipes (there are over 130) is local and decidedly lekker, covering classics (both traditional and updated), contemporary fare and personal favourites of the featured cooks, often referencing heritage and memory… It’s a total winner of a book and would make the perfect gift for any occasion, a from-me-to-me pressie and will most definitely be cherished by an ex-pat friend or family member who hankers after a touch of homegrown flavour. The book has been published in association with The Nelson Mandela Foundation and will support the Foundation’s food security programme.
