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 More than just a cookbook – part photo journal, part historical document, part culinary journey into the homes of the people of the Bo-Kaap, celebrating a uniquely South African culture.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.

Constantia Glen
Constantia Glen
“The evocative journey behind a jewel in the Cape’s winemaking crown.”
This book is a celebration of Constantia Glen’s rocketing success – it’s an historical account, rich in scale, but it’s also the intimate story of a family whose determined vision is underwritten by a deep love for this land. It pays homage to the finely-tuned contemporary operations and advances behind its world-class wine-making, the Constantia Glen team’s unflinching commitment to quality in everything that they do and an honouring of the ‘extended family,’ the Constantia Glen staff – some of whom have worked on the farm for decades. “There’s a lot to be said for continuity,” says Alexander Waibel. “It’s in the way we learn about our vineyards and the way we value the people who work in them.”
  • A visual feast
  • A Cape gem revealed
  • Offers interesting insights into the farm
  • Large-format, art book

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

Eat your words, the bookclub cookbook
Eat your words, the bookclub cookbook
Eat your words by Louise Gelderblom There are few things that compare to an afternoon curled up with a good book. It is even better if it is followed by a great meal shared with good friends. And the cherry on the top is when, at the end of the gathering, you have a fresh stack of books next to your bed to thrill you for the coming month. But probably the greatest scenario of all is when it was you who hosted book club and everything went smoothly: you did not kill yourself during the preparations for the evening and your guests liked your books and loved your food. I hope this book will help you towards that specific state of bliss. The idea for this collection of recipes started with the premise that not all readers are necessarily confident cooks. Neither are some social people who want to invite a group of friends or family over for a catch-up or special celebration. This book helps you prepare a great meal for your gathering with a bit of planning and without too much stress. For this reason the emphasis is on dishes that can be prepared and often completed before the guests arrive. SIZE 220 x 230mm SOFT COVER, EXTENT 160 pgs. • ISBN 978-1-928209-90-4
