The recipes bring seasonal produce to the fore and the balance of dishes and ease of preparation will have you inviting friends and family over in no time to share in this veritable bounty.

whole foods, celebrating seasonal produce, good fats and whole grains,
pulses and legumes, and foods that are almost entirely free of refined
carbohydrates and sugars.
Izelle Hoffman is on a mission to change perceptions about food and to increase awareness of the benefits of eating the right foods and choosing a life of health and wellness. Did you know, for instance, that the humble sweet potato contains anti-inflammatory properties and regulates blood sugar levels? And that raw honey isn’t simply a sweetener – it has antifungal and antiviral properties as well?
In Mindful Eating, Izelle encourages you to rethink what you put in your body in a fun, healthy way, and demonstrates that living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean that your diet needs to be boring and restricted, especially where vegetables are concerned. By sharing her recipes for energising breakfasts, quick weekday meals, sweet baked goodies, classics with a healthy (Izelle-approved) twist and family favourites, among others, Izelle aims to help you take back control of your wellbeing.
Packed with delicious, nutritious and deceptively simple recipes, Mindful Eating is more than a cookbook; it is an inspirational and motivational guide to leading a healthy lifestyle through good eating.
Many people want to lose weight and are looking for the easiest way to do so. When it comes to weight-loss programmes, one of the excuses most frequently heard by dieticians is ‘I don’t know how to prepare the right meals’. This book provides a solution to that.

Nigella Lawson is a champion of the home cook and her new book celebrates the food she loves to cook for friends and family.

As Nigella writes, 'happiness is best shared' and the food in this book will be served and savoured at your own kitchen table just as it is at hers.

The Colour of Wine isn’t just another book about picturesque Cape vineyards. Instead, it tells the remarkable story of South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy through the personal journeys of black winemakers. Woven through their stories are interviews with wine producers and politicians, chefs and sommeliers, connoisseurs and teachers, drinkers and tasters.
The book, twinned with the documentary film The Colour of Wine (included on DVD), explores the turbulent history of winemaking in South Africa, and the varied careers the industry has to offer. Wine doyen John Platter offers insights into where South African wine is now, and where the industry needs to go. You’ll also discover a rich array of local recipes that complement South African wines.
The Colour of Wine gives a taste of the changing world of South African wine.
So just who is Bertus Basson? A dreamer, successful entrepreneur, braaimaster, genius, fanatic or chef extraordinaire? He is, of course, all of those things.
This extraordinary cookbook, beautifully photographed by the legendary Claire Gunn, follows the success of Bertus’s first cookbook Homegrown, now almost out of print. But this one is different. In it you will feel the drive and energy of this whirlwind of a man. The book offers inspiration to those of us who sit, mouths agape, wondering just how Bertus and his remarkable wife have so successfully built multiple restaurants. It presents an inside look into these restaurants from the story of the beginnings and growth of signature restaurant Overture, to Spice Route, wildly popular with the tourist crowds, and Spek & Bone, the small-plate wine bar in Stellenbosch, through to his love affair with burgers and just how De Vrije Burger was conceptualised and brought to life.
Being Bertus Basson, or BBB as this book has fondly become known, is a combination of all that makes up Bertus. There’s a bit of entrepreneurial spice; a dollop of the practical advice that makes him such a successful restaurateur. For all those who’ve eaten or who’ve dreamed of eating at one of the restaurants so beautifully photographed in the book, here’s how to do it. The recipes will surprise you with their simplicity and quirkiness, show you just how to step beyond the usual and how to look at food, South African food in particular, in a whole new light.
Once you’ve read Being Bertus Basson, there’s no going back to banal food experiences.

You will find scrumptious desserts, easy dinners, fun and delicious twists on South African favourites (bobotie balls anyone?) as well as a few wonderful recipes from special guests who also wanted their recipes in the book, shame.
This cookbook is for everybody! If you are a master chef or a mini chef, if you only know how to use the microwave or even if your meals always come out looking a little bit rustic, there’s something in this book for you.
So pop on your aprons people! It’s time to use your own creativity and make some delicious kitchen magic happen. DIY? Because anybody can!
Mastering the kitchen can seem pretty intimidating, especially when confronted with Instagram and TV chefs who seem to do everything with ease while, at the same time, relating a cute anecdote on camera. I've found that what most people want is simply to learn to prepare delicious and visually appealing food - the kind that will gain likes on social media - which is what inspired this cookbook.
This book was written and compiled with YOU in mind, and takes into consideration all the different occasions a South African kitchen might have to cater for. The recipes use simple ingredients that are probably already in your pantry or fridge, and if not, they’re readily available in all our favourite grocery stores.
What’s not to love about sheet pan cooking? It is super- convenient, healthy, easy on the washing up and, as Liz Franklin proves here in 101 inspired meat-free recipes, big on flavour!
More and more of us are cutting out animal protein and products from our diets, or at very least reducing them. Liz Franklin reveals how all manner of truly scrumptious dishes can be created when oven, sheet pan and vegetables conspire. Most of the recipes are built on a rainbow of roasted vegetables, grains, cheese and vegan sources of protein, but there are also recipes for things you might not associate with oven cooking too, such as fabulous fritters, glorious soups and the best- ever baked porridge.
Taking their lead from dishes enjoyed all around the world, recipes include delicious dishes from the Mediterranean, Middle East, Africa and the Americas as well as ideas designed to showcase your own local seasonal produce.

Once, chef Brett Ladds was given a cigar by Fidel Castro, he talked weightlifting with Swazi king Mswati III and his cooking made Quincy Jones sing. For many years he also served Nelson Mandela many cups of rooibos tea and made him his favourite meals.
Ladds was the executive chef of the SA government and manager of the presidential guesthouse at Bryntirion Estate in Pretoria from 1994-1999 where he served both Mandela and Thabo Mbeki. It was a naive and star-struck 21-year-old Ladds who started working at the guesthouse in the months before the first democratic election. During this time he was always in the background when struggle stalwarts like Steve Tshwete, Joe Modise and Dullah Omar met Mandela to discuss the future of the country.
This heart-warming book tells of a young man’s coming of age at a turning point in our history. His stories about meeting kings and queens, presidents, rock stars and even the pope are laced with his unique, self-deprecating sense of humour. Of Queen Elizabeth he says it felt like speaking to his gran. “I asked myself, how does all that power fit into this lovely, caring lady?” Of Robert Mugabe: “He never moaned about a thing.”
Then there are the Russian diplomats and their drinking habits and the Saudi-Arabian sheik who had 8 television sets installed in his room and bought 20 blankets at R5000 each for his stay.
It’s a book to make you laugh and cry. And Madiba’s favourite champagne? Pêche Royale . . .
Delicious pasta recipes each under 500 calories per portion, from classic traditional dishes to contemporary twists, including vegan, vegetarian gluten- and dairy-free options.
Pasta is one the easiest to make and most joyful to eat meals; always in the cupboard, ideal to turn to in a pinch and the ultimate comfort food. However, a fear of carbs has placed pasta firmly on the no-go list of 'bad' foods for many people - a huge mistake and wholly unnecessary! If you're on the hunt for a balanced, nutritious meal that can please a crowd as easily as provide a quick supper for one, pasta is a great choice. It's often the accompanying sauces and toppings that pile on the calories in a pasta dish, so here Julia Azzarello proves otherwise - all recipes are small on calories, big on nourishing ingredients and full of flavour.
Focusing on fresh, healthy ingredients in delicious combinations, Skinny Pasta also has many vegan, vegetarian gluten- and dairy-free options. From Vermicelli with Cherry Tomatoes, Rocket & Feta and Mafaldine with Romanesco Sauce, to tasty salads such as Greek Rotini and soups Butter Bean, Chorizo & Spinach with Pappardelle, as well as quick and easy mains including Orecchiette with Cime Di Rapa & Chilli, Spaghetti Carbonara and Mac 'n' Cheese, there's a pasta for every occasion.
If you have a little extra time on your hands then make your own basic pasta dough, gluten-free gnocchi, fresh pesto or marinara sauce, or simply add shop bought pasta, and indulge in a delicious and nutritious treat.
A generation of young adults have come to know, love and depend on Help! There’s a Stove in My Kitchen, Annabel Frere’s first cookbook. That same generation has graduated to the young professionals who now need to entertain on a somewhat more sophisticated level. Author Annabel has been through all these stages with her own daughters and once again provides a repertoire of tasty and relati vely simple recipes for events ranging from impromptu gatherings to well-organised occasions.
Much emphasis is placed on good planning, as well as preparing foods in advance so that the cook can spend as much ti me with his or her guests, rather than in the kitchen on the day itself. Attention is also given to texture and presentation, with plenty of tips and suggestions for effortless entertaining. Where dishes may seem to be more complicated, Annabel is an expert at demystifying them. And of course, no party is complete without the right liquid accompaniments so there is a chapter on some delicious cocktails, both with and without alcohol.

Spices weaved their way into my kitchen and somehow my collection seems to flourish regardless of the homes and locations I’ve lived in. From the author and chef of Cooking for my father in My Cape Malay Kitchen, comes a cookbook that chronicles her adulation and reverence for spices. Cariema Isaacs’s affinity for spices emanates from her Cape Malay heritage and her time spent cooking and baking in her grandmother’s kitchen in Bo-Kaap, the Cape Malay Quarter in Cape Town. Thus, at a very early age she understood the tastes derived from cumin and coriander, the pungency of fennel, cloves and star anise, and the piquancy of chilli powder, cayenne pepper and masala blends. Spice Odyssey showcases a multitude of beautifully written recipes with some familiar spices from her Cape Malay heritage and fresh aromatics from her travels to India, Turkey, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and the Middle East. ‘From east to west, north to south, the routes and journeys travelled from shore to shore by slaves and explorers, travellers and traders, the story of spices emerged and the spice odyssey began.’
An authentic Turkish cookbook by the owner of the Turkish restaurant Anatoli in Cape Town.
Travel with Tayfun Aras to Turkey and get to know him and the food tradition he grew up with better. Tayfun, who made South Africa his home in 1998 after marrying an Afrikaans girl, Louise, shares the restaurant’s most popular recipes. The dishes range from simple mezes and delectable main courses (lamb dishes and kebabs) to fabulous desserts (baklava and kadayif) and drinks (Turkish coffee and tea and the national drink raki). All ingredients are readily available in South Africa.
Get to know Turkish food tradition and culture as well as the heart of Turkish food: complex, honest food shared with Turkish generosity.
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.
