Na 15 jaar is die imposante Ch‚teau de la Creuzette in aar volle glorie gerestoureer. Sy sit in haar skaduryke park omring deur eeu oue bome waar sy afwagtende besoekers steeds met oop arms ontvang.
Die suksesvolle Feestelike Frankryk het Fransgesinde lesers gaande gehad met stories en smaaklike resepte uit die Franse platteland. Uit La Creuzette se nuwe somerkombuis vloei daar nou ’n magdom kulinÍre heerlikhede wat elke kosliefhebber se mond sal laat water. Buiten die bykans 90 nuwe resepte wat die skrywers in vyf seisoene verdeel (ja vyf!) is daar ’n Kroekboek bygevoeg waarin die twee gashere hul maklike kortpadresepte en wenke met lesers deel – hoe om in die kombuis te kul en te konkel as die kalf in die put is. Hier word elke maaltyd ’n feesmaal.
Dek ’n mooi tafel en skink in kristal. Die storie van ’n Huis is dus nie slegs twee kookboeke in een nie, maar dis ook ’n ryklik versierde leesboek wat die verhaal en die geskiedenis van ’n herehuis en sy mense kleurvol naloop. Kom binne, die deure staan oop ...
It took 15 years to fully restore the impressive Ch‚teau de la Creuzette to her former glory. She continues to rest in her shaded park, surrounded by centuries-old trees, and welcomes her expectant guests with open arms.
The highly successful Festive France caused great excitement among Francophiles, who loved the stories and delicious recipes from the French countryside. Now, the wealth of culinary delights that emerge from the new summer kitchen at La Creuzette are enough to make any gourmand’s mouth water. Apart from the almost 90 new recipes, which the authors have categorised according to five (yes, five!) seasons, there is an additional Crookbook in which the two hosts share their easy shortcut recipes and tips – how to conjure and connive when immediate action is needed. Here, every meal is transformed into a feast. Take a seat a beautifully set table and drink from fine crystal.

When working mother Vickie De Beer’s life changed forever, she and leading paediatric dietician Kath Megaw set about The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics – and, in the process, developed an arsenal of the most effective systems and day-to-day strategies for practically dealing with diabetes.
Part emotive journey, part cookbook and part medical reference, and all bundled up in the care and love of devoted parents, The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics is the fruit of their combined findings – at once personal and professional, and essential reading that effectively ‘closes the gap’ for families coping with diabetes. Underpinned by the knowledge that time is one of today’s most precious commodities, Vickie’s meals are simple to shop for, effortless to prepare and, above all, packed with all the essential nutrients growing bodies and minds need for optimal health.
Grouped seasonally and covering all days of the week, from Monday through Sunday (and not forgetting, sauces, treats and drinks), The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics offers a wide array of choices for every meal of the day and to satisfy all those hunger pangs in between – a happy solution for both busy moms and even busier kids!
"For a couple of months in the near perfect summer of 1990/1991, Jacob Zuma came to stay in my house in Norwood, Johannesburg… Twenty five years later, my former house guest has all but morally bankrupted Nelson Mandela's ruling African National Congress. President Zuma's vision-free leadership, corrupt personal behaviour and attempts to use his political power to distort the judicial system render him no better than Italy's corrupt bunga-bunga partying ex-prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi."
So begins God, Spies And Lies, the most explosive insider’s account since Mandela came to power, a never-before-seen insider’s account of how South Africa got here -- and how things went wrong. It takes you into the room with Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki, into the Oval Office of the US President and the British Prime Minister’s Chequers country estate, as the fate of southern Africa was being set before and after 1994.
Among its revelations are:
John Matisonn has had a bird’s eye view of South Africa’s progress through apartheid and democracy. As a political correspondent, foreign correspondent and one of the pioneers of democratic South Africa’s free broadcasting environment, he interacted with every ANC leader since Oliver Tambo and every government leader from John Vorster to Jacob Zuma. Now for the first time this seasoned and erudite insider reveals the secrets of a 40 year career observing the politicians, their spies and the journalists who wrote about them. As a patriot, he argues that the way to a better future can be found through an unvarnished examination of the past.
It has been 21 years since the dawn of democracy in South Africa. To mark the "coming of age" of the nation, Melanie Verwoerd and Sonwabiso Ngcowa travelled across South Africa collecting the life stories of people born in 1994.
These "born frees" relate their personal journeys, dreams and hopes for the future of the country. The brutally honest voices of these 21-year-olds, challenging and disturbing, as well as funny and hopeful, give an invaluable insight into modern day South Africa.

The quintessential South African cooking style, Reuben takes you on a roadtrip through his past from hunting and cooking pigeons on the farms of Franschhoek as a kid, to his travels. In Braai, Reuben on Fire, he challenges you to lift your game above the simple tanning of a chop and burning of boerie. Delving into the business of naming rites, the politics of the braai, the logistics of the braai timeline and the importance of developing a relationship with your butcher, Reuben covers the basics before getting into the meat of the matter. Throughout the book tips and tactics and wine and beer food pairings are dispersed liberally while braai myths are blown out of the water. The dishes are unmistakably South African in flavour and feel. From new versions of standard rockstar South African ingredients to digging deep into the spectrum of what is possible on a braai, Braai - Reuben on Fire is a book for any braai fan keen to take their skills to the next level.

There are few things that compare to an afternoon curled up with a good book. It is even better if it is followed by a great meal shared with good friends. And the cherry on the top is when, at the end of the gathering, you have a fresh stack of books next to your bed to thrill you for the coming month. But probably the greatest scenario of all is when it was you who hosted book club and everything went smoothly: you did not kill yourself during the preparations for the evening and your guests liked your books and loved your food. I hope this book will help you towards that specific state of bliss.
The idea for this collection of recipes started with the premise that not all readers are necessarily confident cooks. Neither are some social people who want to invite a group of friends or family over for a catch-up or special celebration. This book helps you prepare a great meal for your gathering with a bit of planning and without too much stress. For this reason the emphasis is on dishes that can be prepared and often completed before the guests arrive.
The book is a celebration of the South African celebrity and showcases some of the most popular influencers in our country today.

Meat Manifesto: Proper and Delicious offers a practical and considered guide on how to choose meat, how to butcher it and how to cook it.
Andy believes you can’t sell meat unless you know what to do with it and, in between personal food philosophies and agricultural insights, the book celebrates various cuts of meat, by introducing readers to them and offering delicious recipes best suited to each specific one. Andy smokes, grills and roasts his way through beef, pork, lamb, venison, poultry and even goat as recipes range from exotic (tongue, ears and offal) to basic (how to grill a pork chop).
The book will explain how to make bacon at home but also why you should be eating grass-fed beef, as opposed to feedlot. It will show you how to butcher a chicken at home but also explain how to best cook it. It is meticulously researched but presented in an approachable way. The end goal is to walk people through various meat recipes, sure, but also to strengthen the reader’s relationship with their supply chain by asking them to consider if they really are happy with the status quo.
From a grand sandstone mansion rescued from dilapidation in the scrubby Free State veld, to a romantic Arts & Crafts style double-storey that presides over a halfacre of prime real estate in the high Berea suburb of Durban, Remarkable Heritage Houses of South Africa provides a privileged glimpse inside 20 of the country’s most distinguished, remarkable and treasured private residences.
Predominantly constructed no later than the mid 1950s and chosen for the singular legacy each keeps alive, these are homes that blend architectural integrity with an uncanny sense of place. Some more ‘historic’ than others, they have been sensitively rescued or meticulously preserved, or simply kept current with custodianship that has at all times respected their unique pedigree. Strikingly captured by distinguished photographer, Craig Fraser, they cover the full gamut of locations, architectural genres and interior decorating styles, yet have all been skilfully adapted to meet the demands of modern living.

Each chapter is driven by stories he’s written over the past 10 years and which revolve around what he finds most important as a cook. From how travelling influences your repertoire and teaching men to reclaim their skills in the kitchen to learning from masters (both lauded and unsung) or simply cooking over open coals – each chapter gives you a taste of Pete’s life, his opinions (of which there are plenty) and his dishes.
