Win a Classic South African Cookbook hamper

The Classic South African CookbookDie Klassieke Suid-Afrikaanse Kookboek

 
The Classic South African Cookbook by Melinda Roodt is exactly that – classic home cooking for South Africans the way they eat now.

In line with the country’s diverse cultures, which often blend more harmoniously in the kitchen than in any other sphere of life, this book is a kaleidoscope of our modern lifestyle with influences from grandma’s kitchen, popular Mediterranean cuisine, as well as both Indian and African culture.

But no matter what your roots may be, this book sets a foundation for good, honest, carefree home cooking, incorporating all the well-loved and familiar favourites. The more than 170 recipes have been refined to guarantee mouth-watering results, no matter your skill level. Only fresh and locally available ingredients are used, while the various techniques are carefully explained – a real boon to those just setting out on their culinary journeys. Best of all, every recipe is accompanied by a full-colour photograph.

Also available in Afrikaans as Die Klassieke Suid-Afrikaanse Kookboek.
