Bernadette le Roux 2
R420 R259 Discovery Miles 2 590 Save R161 (38%) In stock

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). Best known for her uncomplicated 'real' recipes as presented in her second book, Roots, Shoots & Leaves, as well as her engaging voice as author of South African chef Reuben Riffel's Reuben Cooks Local, Bernadette has become known to a wider audience through her editorship of Condé Nast magazine House & Garden: Gourmet. She is also part owner of the family-run Café Roux restaurants in Noordhoek and Cape Town's Shortmarket Street.

No Nigella cookbook would be complete without sweet treats, and At My Table is no exception, with Emergency Brownies, White Chocolate Cheesecake and a Victoria Sponge with Cardamom, Marmalade and Creme Fraiche set to become family favourites.

R330 R262 Discovery Miles 2 620 Save R68 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 10 working days

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.

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!

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.

R325 R256 Discovery Miles 2 560 Save R69 (21%) In stock

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.

R350 R275 Discovery Miles 2 750 Save R75 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

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.’

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.

Terroir is one of the Cape Winelands’ most acclaimed restaurants. It is located on the beautiful, family-owned Kleine Zalze wine farm in Stellenbosch where its oak tree-shaded setting is ideal for enjoying an elegant and refined, yet leisurely meal.

The chalkboard menu reflects Chef Michael Broughton’s ethos: what you leave off the plate is just as important as what you put on it. His deceptively ‘simple’ dishes – using quality, seasonal ingredients of local, traceable, and ethical provenance – are a sublime marriage of texture and colour, characterised by bold, punchy flavours that remain true to the original ingredients.

Terroir: The Cookbook is a culmination of Michael’s techniques and skills that he has acquired over the years, a collection of recipes that are authentic and true to the Terroir style, much of which is grounded in the French classics and, by default, technically challenging. However, this is not a book for chefs, but rather for those who want to stretch themselves creatively and technically in the kitchen.

Vulture soup, anyone? Or how about diesel-dipped dog biscuits as a side to some fried python? If you prefer something less severe, then how about having a braai on top of a submarine out in the middle of the ocean?

The South African Special Forces, or Recces, are known for being fearless and tough. Not only must they pass a notoriously gruelling selection course, but once they have qualified as operators, they often spend weeks in the bush living off rat packs and whatever else they can find. This cookbook with a difference combines stories about their experiences in the field during the Border War with recipes from the bush and the sea, and even a few from the kitchen. Fortunately, most meals are edible! These recipe stories offer insight into the scope of activities of the different reconnaissance units, including 4 Recce at Langebaan, 5 Recce at Phalaborwa and 1 Recce at Durban.

Readers will also learn about some of the important life skills needed to be a member of the Special Forces as well as Recce philosophy, such as staying in the moment and being adaptable. This book feeds into the public’s fascination with this elite unit and will help to break down some of the secrecy around the Recces.

If you are human, you can braai. Cooking meat over a fire is something that defines our evolution as a species. The act of using fire to cook food even defines our social structure as mammals - thanks to the lucky lightning strike eons ago, and the fact that there were some steaks handy. Anything tastes better if you hold it over a fire for a while. Sure, it may not improve the flavour of Brussels sprouts, but if you leave them on for long enough, it's a good way to get rid of them.

Take everything you think you know about cooking and forget it. Jean Nel is re-inventing the braai. It is about so much more than just steaks and boerewors; anything that can be eaten can be braaied. From salads to sides, meats to veg... you could even invite a vegetarian to a braai!

In Braai the Beloved Country, Jean Nel shares his favourite braai recipes from 15 years of cooking, training and catering. The book contains the secrets of cooking everything from a perfect 'tjoppie' to breads and salads on that favourite South African cultural icon - the braai. Not only does he present a host of delicious and unexpected recipes; he goes beyond just cooking, covering everything you need to know about the braai including the tools you'll need and their maintenance.

Before actors and Food Network stars Jazz, Jake, Jurnee, and Jussie Smollett conquered Hollywood, they spent their childhood crisscrossing the United States. Moving coast to coast thirteen times, they car-tripped to small towns and big cities across America.

But no matter where they lived, two things remained constant: their incredible family feasts and the long, wooden kitchen table where they shared food and lived their lives. Each time they arrived in a new home, their mother would transform planks of hard wood into a smooth, varnished butcher block table in a beloved ritual that took three days. That hand-crafted table would become the heart of the Smollett clan, where the most important and cherished events and accomplishments, no matter how large or small, were honored, and where holidays were celebrated: Christmas, Easter, Passover, Chanukah, birthdays, milestones. With a mother from New Orleans and a Jewish father from New York who met and married in California, the Smollett kids were exposed to diverse culinary heritages and grew up open to all the deliciousness the world had to offer.

In this warm and personal book, the Smolletts invite us all to take a seat at their table and enjoy the good times and good food that help families thrive. The Family Table includes more than 130 delicious, comforting recipes that pay tribute to their past and present, including:

  • Crispy Beef Lettuce Wraps
  • Potato Crab Au Gratin
  • Brown Butter Lamb Chops
  • Honey Sriracha Chicken Skewers
  • 7th Ward Gumbo
  • North African Chicken Stew
  • Cast-Iron Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

These favorite recipes from the Smolletts are suitable for intimate dinners and fabulous feasts alike, but more than that, The Family Table is a remarkable portrait of a loving, all-American family, rich with traditions that they continue to build to this day.
