Changing the face of publishing in South Africa’– Jenny Crwys Williams

With the other Best Books in the World, Feast was also admired for its excellent front cover and all-over design, which was exceptional.

Africanismo is wonderful – wow! …Quivertree gets better and better, the Phaidon of our country.’ – Vanessa Badroodien, Cape Town Book Fair director.

Africanismo:‘An extraordinary collection of images under separate elemental ‘umbrellas’ of Earth, Air, Fire and Water… It is glorious, fetching soul-candy.’ – Lauren Shantall, Elle Decoration SA.

On Reuben Cooks: ‘As satisfying as a long lazy lunch at his restaurant on a sunny day in beautiful Franschhoek, this fortifying time traveller seasoned with recipes is worth visiting and revisiting.’– Louise McCann, Elle Decoration SA.

‘Riffel’s book is one you will drool over and put to good use – it’s highly accessible.’– Hilary Biller, Sunday Times.
