South African Gourmet Food & Wine by Myrna Rosen & Lesley Loon. Traditional South African food & more...
This cookbook published by Dorrance Publishing is such a treat! Work and life always get in the way of cooking, but I can't wait to try one of these recipes. As I have never been to South Africa, I know nothing of their food or culture. The entire cookbook is not comprised of all foreign recipes – only pages 11 to 72 are dedicated to traditional South African recipes. The last 230 pages are dedicated to appetizers, soups, seafood, poultry, red meats, salads, desserts, cakes & tarts, and cookies. In the center of the book there are approximately 16 beautiful picture pages of various recipes. I will enjoy using this cookbook and exploring the different recipes in the many years to come!!
“This is a book of not only traditional South African foods, but also international cuisine prepared with South African flair and presented in the style and manner that you would experience in South African homes of every description. From traditional family favorites to modern easy techniques to sophisticated entertaining, you will find a range of foods to suit every occasion and also experience something new and different.”
