"Wow, you don't look like a chef!" This statement is something Chef Lesego Semenya has heard many a time over the years. His response is always: "So, what does a chef look like?"
With his bulging tattooed upper arms, soft-spoken nature and obvious passion for South African cuisine and giving it his unique twist, Lesego probably doesn’t fit the generic look of a self-made top chef. It is his unconventional personality and approach to food that has kept South Africans coming back for more over the years. Having cooked for billionaires such as Richard Brandson, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, starring on the judging panel of foodie programme Top Chef South Africa, being the resident chef for various newspapers and radio shows, and then building his successful culinary brand LesDaChef, he finally brings his foodie fans his first cookbook, Dijo - My Food, My Journey.
Every dish that will be featured in Dijo has a story that speaks of passion and nostalgia. Sharing both the recipes and their history will give foodies a way of getting to know Lesego’s food background while growing up in Soweto, as well as the fine-dining techniques he learned at chef school and a few hot chef secrets, too.
Divided into three sections that span his food journey, Dijo is an affirmation of South African cuisine, its heritage and its unique flavours. Readers will go on a journey through the simplest yet most-loved of township dishes, to the more complex fine-dining molecular gastronomy creations he has become known for. It truly is a reflection of his life lived through food.
Lesego is also very active on social media and has used this platform to not only build his brand, LesDaChef, but also to educate, inform and, sometimes, challenge his followers to learn and understand exactly what they're consuming - whether it be food or beverages.
Featuring over 100 recipes, The Gourmet Cookbook celebrates five years of food, and recipes, garnered from the pages of Condé Nast House & Garden Gourmet magazine.
From aspirational yet easy-to-follow dishes by some of South Africa’s top chefs (David Higgs, Peter Tempelhoff, Chris Erasmus) and food icons (Susan Greig, Andrea Burgener, Judy Badenhorst) to the coveted recipes of home cooks as well as the editor’s own specialties, these pages focus on a range of accessible and delicious everyday dishes.
The Gourmet Cookbook is divided into five chapters – Aperitifs & Appetizers, Starters, Mains, Sides & Salads and Dessert. And there are accompanying menu suggestions to tailor-make a stylish dinner party, an al fresco lunch, a festive feast or a laid-back family meal.
Bernadette le Roux is also the author of a number of cookbooks, including the acclaimed Prickly Pears and Pomegranates — co-authored with her mother Marianne Palmer — which won a World Gourmand Award in Paris for Best Local Cookbook (2009).

Champion of South African home-cooking, Errieda du Toit set out to write a cookbook about the food we most love to eat and the culture of sharing these recipes in community cookbooks. Intrigued by our strong attachment to these dog-eared, food-stained recipes collections, she pored over 150 titles spanning a century. SHARE is her tribute to this humble culinary source and a celebration of its collaborative spirit. It’s the first to deal specifically with the genre, and the result is a delightful, quirky and thoroughly modern homage that taps into our food memories in a unique way.
SHARE features a wide selection of recipes as generous, gracious and welcoming as the home cooks who shared them: the keepers (recipes known for their longevity), the never-fails (those epic recipes that never let you down), communal food for come-on-overs, retro classics and those defining dishes and bakes treasured as heritage food.
Bringing visual expression to Errieda’s vision, SHARE is beautifully photographed, and wittily styled and designed to further capture the character and off-beat traits of the genre.
Foodies of SA is the largest food publisher in Africa.
This is a collection of 100 of their brand new, most viewed and most shared recipes conveniently packaged into the pages of one awesome cookbook for you to enjoy!
All author profits from this cookbook will be donated to Breadline Africa.

Antoni's gorgeous debut cookbook brings together his trademark inclusive and accessible attitude to food with one hundred of his all-time favourite recipes. With chapters including Weeknight Healthyish Meals, Apps and Snacks and Bakes, the book celebrates Antoni's love for fresh, casual and healthy cooking and the occasional indulgent feast.
Antoni gets dinner on the table fast with Chicken Milanese with Baby Tomato Salad, makes visual stunners such as Roasted Carrots with Carrot-Top Pesto, playfully reboots Hi-Lo Poutine from his French-Canadian heritage and dazzles with Salty Lemon Squares for dessert.
Stories behind every recipe give readers a peek inside Antoni's kitchen and life. With delicious recipes, beautiful photos and simple cooking techniques, Antoni in the Kitchen celebrates fast feel-good food, the therapeutic nature of cooking and the joy of sharing food with friends and loved ones.
As the food and wine expert of the 'Fab Five' style gurus on Netflix smash hit Queer Eye, Antoni burst onto our screens in 2018. A self-taught chef, Antoni's degree in psychology helped him hone his underlying philosophy that food should tell a story because the heart and stomach are interconnected. On release, the show had a 100% rating on review website Rotten Tomatoes. In 2018, the show won three Emmy Awards and was nominated for four People's Choice Awards.

Accompanied by Tjaart’s charming background stories, gorgeous colour photography and packed with tips throughout, his recipes prove that enjoying summer on a plate has never been simpler.

‘You are what you eat’ seems like such an obvious statement, so why then is it so hard to eat well and satisfy our cravings in a healthy way?
This cookbook is for all those people who are tired of being told to eat more fruit and vegetables and reduce their intake of refined and processed foods, but who are rarely given any recipes or advice on how to put those guidelines into practice in a way that doesn’t compromise on the flavour and enjoyment of our food. It is also for the growing number of people who suffer from intolerances to certain food groups, particularly wheat and dairy.
The Guilt-free Gourmet is not about diet, weight loss or denial; it is simply showing you the various ways you can use alternative ingredients to achieve the same decadent results as the original, but as the strapline indicates, the recipes are without wheat, dairy or cane sugar. Recipes range from simple sharing plates to more exotic dishes such as Thai curry and fiery Korean noodles to Japanese tempura and Moroccan tagines.

SAAM is die Suid-Afrikaanse huiskoskampioen Errieda du Toit se uitsonderlike kookboek oor kos wat ons die meeste geniet en die kultuur waarmee resepte in gemeenskapsresepteboekies gedeel word.
Errieda verdiep haar in 150 boekies wat oor 100 jaar uitgegee is en vorm ’n spesiale band met die resepte op die omkrulblaaie vol kosvlekke uit dié versamelings.
In dié eiesoortige resepteboek vier Errieda ons noue verhouding met die nederige gemeenskapsboekies, die invloed daarvan op ons koskultuur en die kenmerkende gees van samewerking. SAAM is ’n genotvolle huldeblyk aan die genre wat in ’n moderne trant en effe tong-in-die-kies inspirasie in ons kosherinneringe vind. Die verskeidenheid resepte is ruimmhartig, gasvry en vol warmte soos die huiskokke wat dit oorspronklik in die boekies gedeel het – die aanhouers (langasem-resepte wat bly oorleef), die flatervryes (epiese staatmakers), kos vir oor-en-weer-kuiers en retrogunstelinge wat ons as erfeniskos koester.
Met net die regte balans tussen nostalgie, modernisering van ou resepte en boeiende vertellinge is SAAM dié boek vir huiskokke, kookboekversamelaars en almal wat nuuskierig en entoesiasties is oor Suid-Afrikaanse kos.
Combining Mediterranean simplicity with a dash of nostalgia, West Coast Wander is the definitive guide to sustainable seaside fare and a valuable addition to any South African kitchen.
Exploring this iconic coastline and the people that call it home, West Coast Wander takes readers – travellers and home cooks alike – on a culinary caper from Yzerfontein to Doringbaai, documenting each delicious detour along the way.
From heerboontjies to harders, the book encapsulates recipes both well known and newly discovered. Using a natural and unfussy approach to cooking, author Georgia East highlights the unique ingredients, both cultivated and naturally occurring, along this coastline, transforming them into dishes filled with local flavour.
Seeking out the best place to buy bread in Hopefield, discovering what sets a Sandveld Sauvignon Blanc apart and learning how the plumpest oysters in the country are farmed in Saldanha Bay are just a few of the topics covered.
My Vegetarian Braai is not about trying to convert carnivores but rather to broaden the horizons of every braaier, the ones who enjoy preparing meals for their families and friends and as well as those who will look at the photographs and say ‘I can make that’. With the growing trend of eating plant-based foods, the chances are that at some stage you will need to cater for a vegetarian or vegan.
This book will give you new ideas and delicious recipes to satisfy the taste buds of every guest that sits at your table. Even meat-eaters will be seduced by these tasty vegetarian and vegan recipes, which make brilliant side dishes to accompany any meal.
Create chef-quality food without spending hours in the kitchen.
With unlimited access to recipes, why does anyone need another cookbook? Because not all recipes are born equal. Not all of them have been created by a global superstar chef who has built his reputation on delivering the very best food - whether that's the ultimate fine dining experience at his 3 Michelin-star Restaurant Gordon Ramsay or the perfectly crafted burger from his Las Vegas burger joint.
Over the course of his stellar career, Gordon has learnt every trick in the trade to create dishes that taste fantastic and that can be produced without fail during even the most busy service. Armed with that knowledge, he has written an inspired collection of recipes for the time-pressed home cook who doesn't want to compromise on taste or flavour.
The result is 100 tried and tested recipes that you'll find yourself using time and again. All the recipes take 30 minutes or less and use readily available ingredients that are transformed into something special with Gordon's expertise.
Rebecca and Kate Lund, aka The Delish Sisters, are constantly inspired by the everchanging food industry and love to create beautiful food experiences for clients, friends and family. They enjoy experimenting with new and exotic spices and ingredients, and encouraging people to be a bit adventurous, and in turn see that it’s so simple to do themselves too! Rebecca and Kate’s recipes are fresh, wholesome, colourful, seasonal and ‘mostly healthy’. There are more indulgent dishes and treats, but they keep the eating experience balanced and as inclusive as possible – there are plenty of sugar-free, glutenfree recipes, delicious vegetarian options and tasty vegan food.
Knowing the origins of our food is important and they have developed recipes that make use of ‘whole foods’ and celebrate the least refi ned versions of ingredients. They love what they do, where they live and the power that food has to bring people together.
Delish Sisters – Tasty Food Made With Love is clear evidence of this and is a must for anyone who enjoys delicious, well-balanced meals shared with friends and family.

This book celebrates vibrant, flavoursome food with strong Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences. The recipes support a cook-from-scratch philosophy, guided by the intuitive prompting of seasonality, solid flavourings and visual appeal – from vegan to vegetarian, soulful soups, slow food and simple suppers to pantry staples that make everyday meals easy and effortless. The book aims at a balanced way to cook and eat, rather than exclusions and restrictive classifications.
The reader will find here a modern interpretation of cooking with bold ingredients such as za’tar, harissa, chermoula and ancient grains. Delight yourself with Shawarma chicken and spelt pilaf with zhoug yoghurt, Harrisa lentil shakshuka with foaming sesame butter, Curly kale soup with freekeh and parmesan, Cardamom crème anglaise with hibiscus-roasted guavas, and much more. The popular Cake Friday and Dessert chapters feature swoon-worthy bakes and posh puddings to impress.
Bibby’s Kitchen – The essence of good food articulates the reason why we eat. It’s unapologetically colourful and filled with exuberantly delicious food. It’s about fashioning food and flavours, but mostly it is about people. Together, they create a kind of magic.
Today many of us are looking to eat less dairy, meat and fish, as the host of environmental, ethical and health-related reasons for doing so stack up. The concept of not centring every meal around an animal-based protein is well on its way to settling into mainstream society but out there, is a whole middle-ground of home-cooks, somewhere between carnivore and vegan, who are doing their best to reduce meat and fish consumption, but enjoying it on occasion when the urge strikes. For these so-called flexitarians, choices are less about adopting a rigid regime, and more about an organic attempt to eat a mainly plant-based diet.
This timely cookbook is a collection of modern recipes and comfort food classics, all of which feature simple adaptations that can make them suitable for vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians and meat-eaters. No longer will you have to juggle between multiple cookbooks or haphazardly hash together a meaty ending to a recipe depending on your appetite or cravings!
Drawing inspiration from, Soweto, Mama D and her gran's cooking, Chef Nti realised that in order to talk to a new generation she had to reinvent these flavours in a fresh, innovative way.
Chef Nti - My Modern African Kitchen embraces this concept, celebrating food that is proudly South African.
