Our cookbook club feature for this month is Australian Masterchef winner Emma Dean’s A Homegrown Table. The recipe book contains over 100 recipes with seasonal, farm-fresh and foraged produce. The book portrays her sense of adventure and has a rustic, homey feel to it.
Last week we celebrated Heritage Day, now also called National Braai Day thanks to Jan Braai, author of this month’s cookbook Die Demokratiese Republiek van Braai (the book is also available in English as The Democratic Republic of Braai). This guy is a genius for uniting the country with something that is truly South African – and with it comes good food and being all round sociable and happy.
It’s cookbook club time again! This month’s recipe book: Veld to Fork – Slow food from the heart of the Karoo by Gordon Wright, chef and guesthouse owner in Graaff-Reinet. The book offers 82 recipes that is inspired by Karoo cuisine and the photography of both the food and the local landscape is just gorgeous.
This month’s featured cookbook is by one of my all time favourite bloggers, Sam Linsell of Drizzle and Dip (I started following her long before I even thought of starting a blog of my own). Sweet is her second published cookbook – a true feast for the eyes – with recipes that are just as accessible as those on her blog.
I’m so thrilled to introduce to you today one of my favourite vegetarian cookbooks: The Vegetarian Kitchen by Melissa Bushby. The cookbook contains more than 140 delicious meat-free meals (some of them vegan) including soups, impress-your-guests main meals, breads and delectable desserts.
