There is an immense authenticity and credibility tied to the Gourmet Guide 2016/2017, as months of research has been conducted and will continue, to ensure that only appropriate and deserving establishments are included. Initial visits conducted by professional gourmets were anonymous. Each selected restaurant has a write-up that includes a brief description of the restaurant, a map and detailed directions, GPS co-ordinates and a QR code for readers to link directly to the restaurant’s website. The top restaurants will include a recipe of their signature dish. It will navigate the reader from the major cities of Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban through country escapes en route, covering gourmet getaways, refined dining and fabulous food. There are no hotel or restaurant advertisers, which means all venues are rated on merit alone. There was also no cost for the restaurants/hotels to be included. The prestige and intrigue of the awards programme, the layout and design of the guide and its publicity will ensure appeal to a discerning audience of local and international food lovers and regular restaurant-goers.

The guide is written in an informative yet lively, personality-driven style. Each annual guide will have longevity for the recipe content.

Beer Safari - A Journey Through The Craft Breweries of South Africa (Paperback): Lucy Corne Beer Safari - A Journey Through The Craft Breweries of South Africa (Paperback)

R250 R197 Discovery Miles 1 970 Save R53 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Following the success of African Brew, the first ever book to showcase the South African craft beer scene, beer-centric author Lucy Corne is back with a second homage to hops and grain. Beer Safari takes readers on a journey through the microbreweries of South Africa, stopping to chat to each brewer along the way.

The book is laid out geographically to assist the reader in planning his or her own beer safari. Look out for the 'Big Five Pints' – the author’s pick of the very best South African craft beers. There is also space for beer aficionados to scribble their own tasting notes alongside each brewery’s beer menu.

Beer Safari is the only South African beer book whose author has, in person, visited every one of the 100-plus breweries to get the brewers’ stories, photograph their often quirky brewing setups and of course, to taste their beers. Peppered between the inspiring tales of passionate brewers, are snippets of essential beer knowledge – ideal for the 'beerginner' – alongside checklists that will appeal to newbie beer drinkers and veterans alike. Whether readers are looking for family-friendly beery weekends away, the cutest brewpubs with the finest views or a list of where to go for South Africa’s hoppiest ales, Beer Safari is a comprehensive and user-friendly guide.

The directory showcases everything needed to continue the beer journey – for those who prefer to enjoy other people’s wares, there are recommendations for liquor stores and bars offering a supreme selection of beer. Those who yearn to brew their own will find information on homebrewing stores, courses and clubs throughout the country. Written in Corne’s signature light-hearted style, and with a fresh, vibrant design, Beer Safari perfectly captures the exciting and unpretentious nature that characterises the South African craft beer scene.

South London-based blog, Deserter, is an alt guide to living and loafing in the wonky wonderland south of the river. Its authors, under their noms de plume Dulwich Raider and Dirty South, record off-beat days out and urban adventures featuring pubs, cemeteries, galleries, hospitals and pubs again, often in the company of their volatile dealer, Half-life, and the much nicer Roxy. Part guide, part travelogue, this book is a collection of these tales with the addition of lots of new material that their publisher absolutely insisted upon. South London, that maligned wasteland where cabbies once feared to drive, can no longer be ignored. The South is risen! "The ultimate reprobates' handbook to God's own side of the river - your liver may never be the same again... Wonderful." - Jenny Eclair "Of all the books about South London since 1947 this has to be the best." - Jay Rayner "If a man is tired of London he should read this book." - Bruce Dessau (London Evening Standard, Beyond The Joke) "Deserter's panoply of wastrels throw up the odd genuine revelation... historical, cultural or psychogeographical treasure. They may not mean to educate, but they do." - Ned Boulting, who also writes the foreword

A travelbook? A cookbook? Something more: a cook-travel-book, a perfect and complete guide to discover London, its restaurants and the chefs recipes, the best boutique hotels, the family attractions, the places for shopping and where to eats with less than 15 pounds.A book designed for cook-lovers and for those who loves London and wants to know more about this amazing city. "The first time I came to London I hated it: three days of rain, a hotel room to be forgotten and awful food. But my job of journalist has brought me back here at least once a year from that first journey in 2001, and year after year I fell in love with this city, so much so that today I can not stay away for more than six months.London revealed itself to me as a beautiful but not easy woman, and perhaps it is precisely for this reason that today I'm crazy for it. I discovered a piece at a time, and the more I walked away from the tourist places - though I love them - the more grew the desire to stay here and dedicate a book to this city. A book that, in spite of the bad food eaten in 2001, disassembles a thesis very popular in Italy and maybe in other countries, according to which you can't eat well in London. Thanks to this book I found amazing restaurants, great chefs, lovely places to dine, places where you can eat great lunches at affordable prices.And no other city in the world, with the exception of New York, offers such a variety of international cuisines with this very high quality standards. I have spent two years writing this book, at times this was intense and engaging, exciting and ambitious, and has allowed me to meet many new friends from all over the world. And at the end the result, in reality, is not a book. It's a declaration of love. Yes London, I love you. Every other word would be superfluous".

Includes Le Cinq, Beast and Farm Girl Café, and a new introduction by the author.

Jay Rayner isn't just a trifle irritated. He is eye-gougingly, bone-crunchingly, teeth-grindingly angry. And admit it, that's why you picked up this book, isn't it?

Because you aren't really interested in glorious prose poems celebrating the finest dining experiences known to humanity, are you? You want him to suffer abysmal cooking, preferably at eye-watering prices, so you can gorge on the details and luxuriate in vicarious displeasure.

You're in luck. Revel in Jay's misfortune as he is subjected to dreadful meat cookery with animals that died in vain, gravies full of casual violence and service that redefines the word 'incompetent'. He hopes you enjoy reading his reviews of these twenty miserable meals a damn sight more than he didn't enjoy experiencing them.
