Discover the traditional recipes, veld remedies and diverse culinary tales in Kitchen of my Heart, a fascinating visit to the historic heart of South Africa. Author Sydda Essop has spent years interviewing more than 70 cooks and healers (who range in age from 23 to 96) from across the cultural spectrum in South Africa's remarkable Karoo region. Each interviewee has shared their heartfelt stories of personal challenges and triumphs, and their most precious family recipes. Those interviewed hail from a diverse range of backgrounds, as they include descendants of the Khoisan and Xhosa peoples, the Dutch, British and French settlers, slaves from the East, Greeks, Portuguese, Indians, Jews and even Somalis. Essop pays homage to this rich cultural interdependency without turning a blind eye to the politics, poverty and harsh climate that frequently characterises the region. The recipes included run the foodie gamut from traditional tripe, venison, Karoo lamb and beer to curries, bread, sweets and simple yet wholesome suppers. Also included is a selection of classic Karoo herbal remedies.

Simone Balman
R173 Discovery Miles 1 730 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

For adults only ...When someone is presented with a plate of seemingly ordinary cupcakes and told that it is in fact a twist on their favourite alcoholic drink, it's amazing to see how their eyes light up. The author and her family spent many years as "expats" during which time she started experimenting with alcohol-infused versions of cupcakes and soon could not keep up with the demand. This collection of recipes has been tested, tweaked and adjusted where necessary to ensure that they are practically flop-proof. Some have liqueur in the icing, some have wine or beer in the cake itself, and others have seductive soft centres oozing with delightful cocktail ingredients. Step-by-step instructions explain clearly how the cupcakes are made, and while this book is not about cake decorating, the author includes fabulous ideas for making the cupcakes reflect something of their special nature. Gorgeous full-page photographs of every cupcake will inspire even the most reluctant cook to try them and helpful hints and tips throughout will help ensure success. There are also lots of suggested alternatives and recommendations for substitutions. Conversion tables and basic facts about alcohol and how it reacts in batter and icing complete the information you need to replicate the scrumptious cupcakes. So whether your favourite tipple is beer stout or pink champagne, your ideal cocktail Pina Colada or a Margarita, you want this book. It will change the nature of high tea forever!

There are ingredients, and then there are Ingredients. An ingredient is what we're used to thinking about in the kitchen - things like tomatoes, tofu or thyme. An Ingredient is what those things are made of. There are millions of ingredients, but only eight Ingredients: Waters, Sugars, Carbs, Lipids, Proteins, Minerals, Gases and Heat. Ingredient isn't a book of recipes - instead, it's about learning to see beneath the surface of food, exposing the moving parts that cause every failure and every triumph in every kitchen. You can apply the mindset laid out in Ingredient to any recipe or technique, regardless of your skill level or how you like to cook. Home cooks will feel ready to take on any recipe, and restaurant cooks will feel prepared for anything that comes out of the fire. Beginners will have a lifeline if something goes wrong, and masters will improve dishes they've been cooking for years. Fans of old-school cuisine will understand classic preparations like never before and the innovation-minded will advance the art of cooking even further. Renowned culinary scientist Ali Bouzari illuminates the elemental world of food and unlocks the secrets of ingredients in a lively, engaging and accessible way that dramatically changes the way we look at our food.

Clean & Green
Science has proven that green leafy vegetables and fruit knock all others off the top spot for their spectacular concentration of phytonutrients, vitamins and fibre. And the quickest way to get an instant boost of these healthy greens is in a juice or smoothie. Packed with raw, whole vegetables and fruit, as well as herbs, spices and healthy fats, the fabulous recipes in Clean & Green are literally a health boost in a glass--or a bowl of soup. If you juice regularly, you'll be getting all the essential vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that you need. Each chapter covers the main health benefits of juicing: Cleanse your body with a Grapefruit Crush or the Parsley Purifier; get a healthy glow from a Fennel Flush or a Kiwi Quencher; detox with a Grape & Lychee Reviver, a Green Tea Punch or a Mint Rejuvenator; and soothe your digestive system by drinking a Pineapple Pump, a Broccoli Booster or a Spinach Aid.

Bountiful Bowls
Power bowls are the latest big thing in the foodie world - we now see smoothie bowls, breakfast bowls, Buddha bowls, macro bowls, poke bowls, quinoa bowls and flex bowls on upmarket menus and health blogs alike. So, what is the appeal? A substantial part is linked to macrobiotics, the idea that fresh, unprocessed local produce is always the tastiest and healthiest and that a varied combination of food groups will give you the perfect balance of nutrients. The 50 bowls in Bountiful Bowls focus on breakfast bowls, savoury snacks and lunch bowls, salad bowls, main meals in a bowl and dessert bowls, each one with a clear emphasis on fruit, vegetables, beans or alternative sources of protein. The bowls are often colourful and visually appealing, based on bright natural colours and appetizing textures - crisp red peppers, deep red tomatoes, crunchy pale green salad leaves, blanched red-rimmed circles of radish, the lush purple of beetroot, small blocks of feta or the inviting oranges, yellows and greens of split peas or lentils. So it's time to embrace the bowl in all its glory, with dishes such as Beetroot and Pomegranate Smoothie Bowl, Crunchy Noodle Bean feast, Grilled Chicken and Slaw Bowl, Veggie Burger Bowl and Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl.

The Juice Bar
Give your body the boost it needs with a mouth-watering drink from The Juice Bar. For breakfast, power-up on slow-release energy, with drinks such as Muesli Motivator or Berry Kick-start. When you're thirsty, rehydrate with a cool, ice-packed Raspberry and Watermelon Crush or Minted Melon Squash. Those who are looking to improve their diet, health and well-being with the help of fresh, exciting and invigorating juices.

A revolution is underway in the art of cooking. Just as French Impressionists upended centuries of tradition, Modernist cuisine has in recent years blown through the boundaries of the culinary arts. Borrowing techniques from the laboratory, pioneering chefs at world-renowned restaurants such as elBulli, The Fat Duck, Alinea, and wd~50 have incorporated a deeper understanding of science and advances in cooking technology into their culinary art. In Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, Nathan Myhrvold, Chris Young, and Maxime Bilet--scientists, inventors, and accomplished cooks in their own right--have created a six-volume, 2,400-page set that reveals science-inspired techniques for preparing food that ranges from the otherworldly to the sublime. The authors and their 20-person team at The Cooking Lab have achieved astounding new flavors and textures by using tools such as water baths, homogenizers, centrifuges, and ingredients such as hydrocolloids, emulsifiers, and enzymes. It is a work destined to reinvent cooking. How do you make an omelet light and tender on the outside, but rich and creamy inside? Or French fries with a light and fluffy interior and a delicate, crisp crust that doesn't go soggy? Imagine being able to encase a mussel in a gelled sphere of its own sweet and briny juice. Or to create a silky-smooth pistachio cream made from nothing more than the nuts themselves. Modernist Cuisine offers step-by-step, illustrated instructions, as well as clear explanations of how these techniques work. Through thousands of original photographs and diagrams, the lavishly illustrated books make the science and technology of the culinary arts clear and engaging. Stunning new photographic techniques take the reader inside the food to see cooking in action all the way from microscopic meat fibers to an entire Weber grill in cross-section. You will view cooking and eating in a whole new light. A sampling of what you'll discover: *Why plunging food in ice water doesn't stop the cooking process *When boiling cooks faster than steaming *Why raising the grill doesn't lower the heat *How low-cost pots and pans can perform better than expensive ones *Why baking is mostly a drying process *Why deep-fried food tastes best and browns better when the oil is older *How modern cooking techniques can achieve ideal results without the perfect timing or good luck that traditional methods demand. Many invaluable features include: *Insights into the surprising science behind traditional food preparation methods such as grilling, smoking, and stir-frying *The most comprehensive guide yet published on cooking sous vide, including the best options for water baths, packaging materials, and sealing equipment; cooking strategies; and troubleshooting tips *More than 256 pages on meat and seafood and 130 pages on fruits, vegetables, and grains, including hundreds of parametric recipes and step-by-step techniques *Extensive chapters explaining how to achieve amazing results by using modern thickeners, gels, emulsions, and foams, including example recipes and many formulas *More than 300 pages of new recipes for plated dishes suitable for service at top-tier restaurants, plus recipes adapted from master chefs including Grant Achatz, Ferran Adria , Heston Blumenthal, David Chang, Wylie Dufresne, David Kinch, and many others. From the professional chef to the home cook, Modernist Cuisine is an indispensable guide for anyone who is passionate about the art and science of cooking.

Laura Thompson's grandmother Violet was one of the great landladies. Born in a London pub, she became the first woman to be given a publican's licence in her own name and, just as pubs defined her life, she seemed in many ways to embody their essence. Laura spent part of her childhood in Violet's Home Counties establishment, mesmerised by her gift for cultivating the mix of cosiness and glamour that defined the pub's atmosphere, making it a unique reflection of the national character. Her memories of this time are just as intoxicating: beer and ash on the carpets in the morning, the deepening rhythms of mirth at night, the magical brightness of glass behind the bar... Through them Laura traces the story of the English pub, asking why it has occupied such a treasured position in our culture. But even Violet, as she grew older, recognised that places like hers were a dying breed, and Laura also considers the precarious future they face. Part memoir, part social history, part elegy, The Last Landlady pays tribute to an extraordinary woman and the world she epitomised.
