With ambitious breadth and rare insight, she examines:

  • The arduous but exhilarating work of writing the Constitution and the Bill of Rights
  • The great experiment in catharsis that was the Truth and Reconciliation Commission
  • The reinvigoration of racial polarisation under the Mbeki administration, and the slow burn of resentment that is coming to a head among the next generation (as manifested in the #RhodesMustFall campaign)
  • The ntrenchment of cronyism under Zuma, and the fight to protect the crucial balance of accountability enshrined in the freedom of the media and the independence of the judiciary

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.

The Story of a House is not only two cookbooks in one, but also a richly adorned reading book that traces the history of a manor house and follows the story of its people. Come inside, the doors are open…

"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:

  • How Nelson Mandela studied the Afrikaner Broederbond to end white rule at the same time as he set up the military wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe in 1961
  • The story of the apartheid spy who fooled the white liberal elite
  • What made George Bush Senior change his mind about white rule in Southern Africa
  • How Robert Mugabe fooled South African intelligence
  • Why South Africa missed the Information Economy
  • What disillusioned Thabo Mbeki with the British Labour Party
  • How Jacob Zuma came under the spell of the Chinese Communist Party.
  • What it would take to get the country back on track

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.

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.

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.

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.

Obie captures the rare, the human, the wonderful, the cosmic even. And he doesn’t just take pictures; he also meticulously records it all in words. His descriptions are often as intriguing, as beautiful or as crazy as his photographs.

Go ahead. Feel smug. With Star Fish in your hands, there will no longer be anything fishy about the seafood meals you produce. In fact, the lip-smackingly good recipes in this book use only the top ten most sustainable fish off the SASSI (SA Sustainable Seafood Initiative) green list.

In this surprisingly funny, surprisingly fascinating read, author Daisy Jones takes you on an epic road trip to meet the farmers, conservationists, fishermen and scientists who will protect the top ten in the years to come. You’ll visit a vloeking oyster farmer in a wasteland on the West Coast and a high-heeled SASSI scientist.

You’ll meet an abundantly bearded kabeljou farmer in Paternoster, a third-generation treknetter in Fish Hoek and an Irish-accented aquaculturist in East London. Daisy has conducted hours of interviews on boats, rafts and onfarms to find out why her top ten are not in danger of overfishing and why catching them does no damage to the environment.

The chapters on each fish, and the paintings and illustrations that accompany them, will secure the top ten in your memory – a phenomenon sure to come in handy when you shop or dine out sans SASSI checklist.

The recipes at the end of each chapter, gorgeously photographed by Craig Fraser, tempt those of us in the habit of opting for white linefish and prawns to try something meatier (yellowtail), oilier (sardines) or slurpier (mussels). A chart at the end of the book provides green alternatives to orange- and red-listed fish – both local and overseas varieties.

There’s a word on SASSI, a word on the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) and a word on the state of our oceans. It’s an adventure, switching to green fish. And it’s the right thing to d

When bestselling photographer Rachael Hale McKenna embarked on a new life in France, it was inevitable that she would turn her talents to capturing the beauty of the world around her.

Evoking a gentle change of pace, Rachael’s imagery immerses us in French daily life: the scenery and unique light that inspired a generation of artists; the ancient villages and fortified towns; the beaches of the glittering Cote d’Azur that draw crowds of tourists; the taste of fresh Mediterranean-inspired cuisine that bursts like summer in the mouth, washed down with a pale and blushing rosť.

Illuminated with text by Peter Mayle, author of the bestselling A Year in Provence and A Good Year, For the Love of Provence is at heart a joie de vivre: a joyous celebration of this historic province of southeastern France that has so captivated artists, writers, lovers, and travelers for generations.
