Originating from the Swakopmund Post Office and running north for 108 miles, Namibia’s coast is dotted with mile markers. Weathered painted stones whose numbers have grown rich with meaning and legend, and are now inseparable from the places they signify.
David Higgs, co-owner of Marble restaurant, celebrated chef and co-presenter of My Kitchen Rules, grew up along this coastline. For him, Mile 8 is a special marker as it is where he caught his first fish and his food journey began. This is his story, beginning in the small, coastal town of Walvis Bay, through the cowboy kitchens of Cape Town in the 90’s, to the heart of South Africa’s lush winelands, and culminating at Marble, a culinary tour de force in the heart of Johannesburg.
With over 90 dishes and 150 recipes influenced by the journey of Higgs’ career, Mile 8 is a culinary adventure bringing together the unique and interesting flavours of Southern Africa. Impala Tartare, Snoek & Apricot, Amadumbe & Chakalaka, and his version of the classic Malva Pudding are just some of the delights to be found in this wonderfully illustrated book.
Set a Table is Karen Dudley’s newest offering, following in the footsteps of her ground-breaking and much-loved Week in The Kitchen books.
The recipes are carefully selected to showcase exceptional flavour, but are easily achievable at home. Many of the recipes are well-loved signature dishes from The Dining Room that have been developed for home cooks to share. The Duck Salad with Cashews or the Seared Salmon Sashimi with Vietnamese Caramel are as triumphant as the Asparagus Avgolemono and the Indian-Spiced Cauliflower with Coconut Coriander Relish. These are recipes that are loved by makers and tasters alike.
In addition to the splendid recipes, Karen considers the importance of inviting people into your home to eat around your table. The photographs are rich and beautiful, shot by the extraordinarily talented Claire Gunn, who manages to convey the intimacy and sumptuousness of actual dinner parties thrown by Karen in her home and at her restaurants, The Kitchen and The Dining Room.
This is a beautiful book which will draw people in with its visual allure, win their hearts with Karen’s entertaining and insightful observations and have people buying extra copies to share with their friends for its irresistible originality.
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.
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.

It took 15 years to fully restore the impressive Château 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…
Na 15 jaar is die imposante Château 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 kulinêre 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 ...
In Zola Nene’s own words, she says, "Food has always been a huge part of my life; important occasions were always marked with a feast of some sort … this book chronicles my food journey thus far – how it started and what has shaped me into the chef I am today."
And that’s exactly what Simply Delicious is all about; it’s Zola’s culinary career told through her recipes, interspersed with snippets and perspectives of her life journey, including tributes to the people who have inspired and infl uenced her cooking style and explaining the reason for certain culinary choices that she has made. If one had to describe Zola’s personality in a single idea, it would be ‘irrepressible joy’, which is the thread running through this journey as well as the state evoked by her delicious dishes. Her food philosophy is very simple – cooking is for everyone.
With easy-to-follow instructions, the recipes will ensure that anyone can produce mouthwatering results.
