People with gluten intolerance or coeliac (celiac) disease often struggle to find suitable recipes. Gluten-free ingredients can be expensive, making it a challenge to prepare family meals that don’t break the budget. One of the keys to successful gluten-free cooking is knowing which flour will give the best result. In this book, the various types of flours are discussed and a homemade gluten-free flour mix that forms the basis of many recipes in the book is included.
The South African Gluten-free Cookbook presents 100 tried-and-tested recipes that are perfect for everyday meals, as well as for entertaining. Baking and desserts receive special attention, but there are also recipes for great-tasting breads, quiches, noodles and pasta dishes that make use of a variety of gluten-free flours and flour substitutes.
In keeping with current trends, caulifl ower, quinoa and kale feature alongside salmon, pesto and Asian-style chicken, while traditional cooking holds its own with pumpkin fritters, waffles, mince pies and Yorkshire pudding.
Influencers dominate social media. This book is not only a personal journey filled with overcoming challenges, but also inspires anyone to go after their dreams, whether it's an entrepreneurial adventure or just to curate a lifestyle that excites you every morning.

From the number one bestselling author, Peter James, comes an explosive standalone thriller that will grip you and won't let go until the very last page.
Investigative reporter Ross Hunter nearly didn’t answer the phone call that would change his life – and possibly the world – for ever.
‘I’d just like to assure you I’m not a nutcase, Mr Hunter. My name is Dr Harry F. Cook. I know this is going to sound strange, but I’ve recently been given absolute proof of God’s existence – and I’ve been advised there is a writer, a respected journalist called Ross Hunter, who could help me to get taken seriously.’
What would it take to prove the existence of God? And what would be the consequences?
This question and its answer lie at the heart of Absolute Proof, an international thriller from bestselling author Peter James.
The false faith of a billionaire evangelist, the life’s work of a famous atheist, and the credibility of each of the world’s major religions are all under threat. If Ross Hunter can survive long enough to present the evidence . . .
From Ronald H. Balson, author of Once We Were Brothers, Saving Sophie is the powerful story of the lengths a father will go through to protect his daughter and an action-packed thriller that will take you on an unforgettable journey of murder and deception, testing the bonds of family and love.
Jack Sommers was just an ordinary accountant from Chicago - that is, until his wife passed away, his young daughter was kidnapped, and he became the main suspect in an $88 million dollar embezzlement case. Now Jack is on the run, hoping to avoid the feds long enough to rescue his daughter, Sophie, from her maternal grandfather, a suspected terrorist in Palestine.
With the help of investigative team Liam and Catherine, and a new CIA operative, a secret mission is launched to not only rescue Sophie but also to thwart a major terrorist attack in Hebron. But will being caught in the crossfires of the Palestine-Israeli conflict keep their team from accomplishing the task at hand, or can they overcome the odds and save countless lives, including their own?
Johanne 14 explores the secrets of simple, homecooked meals in South Africa’s townships.
Told through the eyes of award-winning food writer Hope Malau, the book features authentic, traditional dishes cooked with love, and acknowledges the ability of countless unsung kitchen heroes – the mothers, fathers, grandparents and siblings – to make culinary magic with often very little.
It is a vital glimpse into South African township life; moreover, it is a celebration of culture, resilience, human spirit, community and family – through the shared meal.
Die Kos Revolusie het die wereldwye vetsug-epidemie aangespreek met 'n revolusionere benadering tot eet: Dit het diepgewortelde oortuigings uitgedaag, was (en bly steeds) 'n rekordverkoper regoor Suid-Afrika, en het mense se lewens verander. Met Superkos Vir Superkinders beoog die skrywers 'n revolusie in kindervoeding.
Hulle glo dit is tyd om die kindervoedselbedryf sowel as ons uitgediende aannames daaroor uit te daag – tyd om ons kinders die beste voeding en die beste wegspring in die lewe te gee.
Superkos Vir Superkinders is nie 'n banting-kookboek nie, en gaan nie oor ‘geen-koolhidrate’ voeding vir kinders nie. Maar deur 'n ‘ware kos’ eetplan wat laag in suiker en verfynde koolhidrate is, te bepleit, verteenwoordig dit Die Kos Revolusie se volgende stap om die wereld te verander.
It started as advice to his own two children entering adulthood, it spread to his students at the University of the Free State and now tens of thousands of his followers of Twitter and Facebook wait for Jonathan Jansen's words of wisdom every day.
Each day Jansen writes a "Letter to my children" - a nugget of advice on life, love and becoming a compassionate, thinking human being. Jansen has become South Africa's moral barometer in a time when leadership seems to be sorely lacking in many areas of our country which explains why this project has struck such a chord with South Africans young and old alike.
Jansen talks to young people using new media but continues to give them good old fashioned advice about how to conduct their lives as strong and caring citizens who live life to the fullest.
What does it take for entrepreneurs to be effective competitors? What are the factors affecting entry and participation in sectors where there are historically strong incumbent firms? Opening the South African Economy brings to light the challenges of concentration, inequality and exclusion in different sectors of the South African economy.
The book begins with an assessment of the current state of the economy. Detailed case studies then recount the experiences – good and bad – of well-known South African entrant firms in sectors that are critical for facilitating economic growth, including retail, food, fuel, telecommunications, airlines and banking. Important cross-cutting chapters reflect on the role that government policies can play in achieving a more open, inclusive and competitive economy and the use (and misuse) of policy tools such as competition law, black economic empowerment and state procurement. It concludes with a set of concrete recommendations for opening up the South African economy, improved coordination among state institutions and inclusive industrial development.
Accessible and practical, Opening the South African Economy will appeal to a broad readership of business people, policy-makers, students and academics.
President Cyril Ramaphosa, Nelson Mandela’s preferred successor, faces new problems and new choices since he won his own electoral mandate in May 2019.
In the next five years, South Africa will be changed radically by the climate crisis, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, economic stagnation and political unrest among some of its southern African neighbours, and the rising African influence of Russia and China while the West is distracted by the insurgent populism of US President Donald Trump and Brexit.
Written like a thriller in the engaging style of his previous best sellers about the liberation struggle, this book takes up the tale in 2004 when Ronnie Kasrils became Minister of Intelligence, and continues to the present day.
Kasrils fought against the lies and abuses of state resources at the cost of his party popularity. His struggle for the truth, for that is what the book is about, covers the tumultuous years that saw Mbeki’s overthrow and replacement by Zuma at the ANC’s Polokwane Conference, the scandal around the Nkandla property, growing militarisation of the police resulting in the Marikana Massacre, the outrageous appointment of flunkies to high office, the present “state capture” report and the unseemly relationship with the Gupta group. The confusion engendered by Zuma has led Kasrils to explain theenigma and contradictions of the man giving rise to the book’s title. But uppermost in his mind is to explain that corruption and the abuse of power does not begin with Zuma. His thesis points to the compromises on the economy going back to Mandela and the negotiations of the 1990s which he refers to as a “Faustian Pact.” Political power but not control of the economy occurred.
The latter factor has given rise to the problems of inequality, unemployment, poverty, protest and frustration that besets the country. Kasrils argues that the scandalous corruption and crony capitalism under Zuma is symptomatic of underlying contradictions. Merely replacing Zuma without dealing with the economic factors will not solve the problem and time is running out. Kasrils suggests firm remedies to urgently turn around the situation in the interests of all.
A Simple Man: Kasrils And The Zuma Enigma is a gripping page-turner that courageously exposes the intrigues underway and threats to our young democracy. A stark warning rings out of what may face us all if urgent systemic remedies are not taken.
Gus Silber, well-known journalist and wordsmith, has over the last few years written some extraordinary commentary pieces on his journeys around his neighbourhood in Johannesburg and his digital wanderings through the global village we call social media, and posted them to Facebook.

This is a collection of over 50 of Gus’s most-loved social media posts – covering everything from understanding house-breaking hadedas, the meaning of pathos, deciphering Joburg style, and everything in between.
My F*k, Marelize, you’ll want to get your hands on this one.
Specialising in mystery books, Old Devils is a Boston institution; a place where tourists come to snap photos with the shop's Instagrammable cat and browse first editions of Patricia Highsmith novels. Malcolm Kershaw, its owner, lives a quiet life, so he's surprised when an FBI Agent shows up one gloomy winter morning and asks him if he can answer some questions.
Agent Gwen Mulvey is investigating a series of unsolved murders that appear to have one thing in common: each of the deaths bears an eerie similarity to the crimes depicted in several famous classic mystery novels. Malcolm doesn't know what to say - he doesn't know anything about the crimes, has barely even heard of the victims - but he certainly isn't expecting Agent Mulvey to bring up a blog post he wrote years ago.
'My Eight Favourite Murders', posted in 2004, was Malcolm's inaugural piece on the Old Devils site. Now, it seems, someone is using that list as a template; Agent Mulvey thinks Malcolm's specialist knowledge of the mysteries will help her solve the murders. But with each murder, the killer is inching ever closer to Malcolm himself, and the more Malcolm and Agent Mulvey learn, the less clear it becomes who is investigating whom.
My Second Reading Library consists of 50 books which are in different levels.
