“The Yumcious catering offerings are real crowd-pleasers. Whether you are planning an informal supper for a family get-together or a special occasion for friends, you can be assured of happy faces and plenty of compliments when you serve any of these dishes.
I have had the pleasure of cooking for several high-profile people – Prince Charles, Presidents Thabo Mbeki and FW de Klerk, Vice President Al Gore, Kenneth Kaunda, King Goodwill Zwelithini, Charlize Theron, Graham Norton, and the Duke and Duchess of Kent, to name but a few – and I treated them all the same as I would the man on the corner. I have approached every catering job as if I was cooking for my own family; I have never cut corners or used substandard ingredients, and I only prepare food that I like to eat myself. I cater weddings, funerals, birthdays, product launches, you name it. I love designing the menu around my client’s needs, imaging what they would like to serve their guests.
But more than anything, I simply love feeding people so catering will always hold a special place in my heart.” - Jenny Morris
After highly successful outings with her first two books, Sharon Lurie, aka the Kosher Butcher’s Wife, decided that it was time to make it official and combine the influences of her culinary inheritance, i.e. cooking kosher as a proud South African.

And in her inimitable style, Sharon will keep you laughing along the way.
Ideal for anyone who wants to eliminate sugar from their diet, Sugar-Free & Carb-Conscious Living is based on ‘low carb high fat’ principles, with the emphasis on home-cooked, nutritional meals, the recipes will increase satiety, reduce sugar cravings and eliminate the need to snack between meals.

Sauces, dressings, salads and vegetables – often the key to creating variety in everyday meals – are not forgotten.

The Real Meal Revolution was all about taking on the global obesity epidemic with a revolutionary approach to eating; it challenged ingrained beliefs, it sold (and still sells) in record-breaking numbers throughout South Africa, and it changed people’s lives.
With Raising Superheroes, the authors have now set out to revolutionise the way we feed our children. It’s time, they believe, to challenge the kids’ food industry and our old assumptions; it’s time to give our children the best nutrition possible, and the best start in life.
Raising Superheroes is not a Banting cookbook, and it doesn’t offer no-carb eating for kids. But – in advocating low-sugar, low-refined-carb, “real” food eating – it is the Real Meal Revolution’s next step towards changing the world.

The Sazerac ranks among the most famous drinks of a city famous for its drinking, but where did the classic New Orleans cocktail originate? Drinks journalist Tim McNally dives into the history of the Sazerac in a lively chronicle that ranges from a family-owned Cognac company in France, to an ingredient created by a New Orleans pharmacist, to a spirit once banned on three continents, to the renowned Playboy Clubs of the 1970s, which helped revitalize the enjoyment of complex, elegant mixed drinks. Among the many significant developments in the life of the Sazerac was its designation in 2008 as the official cocktail of the city of New Orleans. When the Sazerac made its first appearance in the mid-1800s, the very concept of a cocktail (though not the word) was still new. Bartenders did not spend much time combining multiple ingredients for a single drink, and when they did, they felt no impulse to give it a name. But the Sazerac was unique. It combined a specific Cognac named Sazerac de Forge et Fils with Creole pharmacist Antoine Peychaud's much-beloved brand of bitters, plus a sugar cube-all of which were stirred and strained into a drink glass coated with absinthe. The making of the drink provided the comfort and enjoyment of a social ritual, and the Sazerac became both a delicious beverage in its own right and a marker of the city's unique alcohol culture. With a spirited blend of history, cocktail trivia, and recipes, The Sazerac uncovers the true story of one of New Orleans's most long-lived and iconic beverages.
