Bo-Kaap Kitchen
Bo-Kaap Kitchen
Bo-Kaap Kitchen: Heritage recipes and true stories. More than just a cookbook – part photo journal, part historical document, part culinary journey into the homes of the people of the Bo-Kaap, celebrating a uniquely South African culture. Through personal stories, recipes, historical images and Craig Fraser’s beautiful visuals, Bo-Kaap Kitchen reveals the heart of the Cape Malay people, their history and identity, distinctive architecture and language. The warmth and character of the people shine through as they share their stories about cooking, family bonds and strong faith. Residents of the Bo-Kaap are descendents of some of the first people to settle at the Cape, mostly descendents of slaves brought here from as diverse places as Ceylon, India, Indonesia, Java, Malaysia, North Africa, East Africa and Madagascar. Many of these slaves were sought after for their skilled labour and excellent craftsmanship. A large part of the book is devoted to the significance of food, which is so central to the culture. Rites of passage, pilgrimages, prayers for newborns and the deceased, breaking the fast during Ramadan, engagements, weddings, all are celebrated with meals that are shared in this closely knit community.

Cook. Better.
Cook. Better.
This is not a cookbook. It’s a book about cooking. Think of it as cooking between the lines. Or what your mother should have told you. Yes, there are recipes, but this book is about the journey, not the destination, so taking centre stage are the hows and whys behind everyday ingredients and techniques – when to use coarse or finely ground salt, best pairings for common garden herbs, extracting and building flavour, champion chopping techniques, foolproof fillet, spud’s lore, jackets and all … Whereas lessons on technique are found mostly in hefty culinary bibles, this user-friendly book is for everyone who’s anywhere along the cookery continuum. It is the ‘ta-da’ moment for those who have been cooking, duty bound, for years, but didn’t show up for basics training. SIZE: 197 X 255 MM • PAGES 300 • HARD COVER • ISBN 978-0-992216-94-8

A MOUTHWATERING COOKBOOK THAT PROVIDES BOTH THE WISDOM AND THE WAY.

‘Love is the most important ingredient. I’m confident I have the knowledge, experience and compassion to revolutionise your family’s eating habits for the better, for ever.’ – Kath Megaw

In Real Food, Healthy, Happy Children, Kath Megaw offers a research grounded yet easy-to-grasp guide on what to feed children at the different stages of their development.

Reuben Cooks Local
Reuben Cooks Local
In this, his second cookbook, renowned South African chef Reuben Riffel shares his favourite local ingredients, highlighting seasonal items and South African producers.
The easy instructions allow you to capture the flavours of South Africa —whether from sea, earth, field or orchard — simply and successfully in your own kitchen, producing dishes guaranteed to become instant favourites with family and friends’ jos baker
From ripe guavas and delicate waterblommetjies to sweetfleshed spanspek, bright yellow mielies and crunchy apples; from rooibos and buchu to Karoo lamb and an abundance of seafood – these are the building blocks from which Reuben crafts his extraordinary variety of delectable yet accessible recipes. Here Reuben explores the best of South Africa’s produce: fresh ingredients that arrive at his acclaimed restaurants on a daily basis throughout the year. As Reuben demonstrates, these local, seasonal stars don’t need complicated cooking techniques, just simple ways of combining excellent ingredients to maximize flavour. Reuben’s deep-seated knowledge of local produce – its history, place, variety and season – is in part gained from contact with local South African producers and farmers, many of which are honoured in this book.
