Suid-Afrikaners is nou maar eenmaal gaande oor vleis. Dis onontbeerlik op enige feestafel, en vir die meeste van ons is selfs ’n gewone weeksaandete nie volledig daarsonder nie. Nie net is dit heerlik en vullend nie, dis ook propvol voedingstowwe wat goed is vir ons.

Vleis: Die Omvattende Gids is ’n moderne ensiklopedie wat ’n ereplek verdien in die kombuis van almal wat graag vleis eet en gaarmaak. Afgesien van resepte vir smullekker vleisgeregte vir elke okkasie bevat dit hope inligting oor die beste manier om die verskillende snitte en soorte vleis te berei, hoe om vleis te vries of tot perfeksie te verouder, tesame met ’n hordes wenke om geur en sappigheid te verseker – alles sonder preserveer- en ander kunsmatige bymiddels. Die voedselwetenskaplike en gewilde kosskrywer Annelien Pienaar se passie vir goeie, volhoubare vleis word weerspieŽl op elke bladsy van hierdie boek.

Vleis: Die Omvattende Gids is die enigste vleisboek wat jy ooit weer sal nodig kry. Dit bevat:

  • Meer as 100 resepte wat die toets van die tyd deurstaan het – daar is beesvleis, lam en skaap, vark, pluimvee, afval en wildsvleis, en enigiets van maklike gesinsetes, tradisionele treffers en spoggerige onthaalkos tot kitsplanne met die oorskiet
  • Beskrywings van al die verskillende vleissnitte, hul gebruike en die beste metodes om dit gaar te maak
  • Nuttige inligting oor die voedingswaarde en veroudering van vleis, vleisterme en omskakelingstabelle
  • Ekstra resepte vir marinades, souse, soutmengsels, aftreksels en deeg wat vleis komplementeer
Rise (Paperback): Siya Kolisi Rise (Paperback)
Siya Kolisi
R320 R235 Discovery Miles 2 350 Save R85 (27%) In stock

His truth. His story. In his words.

Siya Kolisi, captain of the Springboks, and the first black man to lead his country in over 128 years of South African rugby shares his story in Rise. In an extraordinarily intimate memoir, Kolisi charts his story from being born into the impoverished Zwide township, to leading his proud nation to an astonishing victory at the Rugby World Cup in 2019.

However, Rise is not simply a chronology of matches played and games won; it is an exploration of a man’s race and his faith, a masterclass in attaining a positive mindset, and an inspirational reminder that it is possible to defy the odds, no matter how they are stacked against you. The title, Rise, is inspired by Siya’s mother – Phakama – which translates to the book’s name, as well as a celebration of his Xhosa heritage.

The Gourmet Cookbook (Paperback): Bernadette le Roux The Gourmet Cookbook (Paperback)
Bernadette le Roux 3
R249 Discovery Miles 2 490 In stock

Featuring over 100 recipes, The Gourmet Cookbook celebrates five years of food, and recipes, garnered from the pages of Condť 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 Condť Nast magazine House & Garden: Gourmet. She is also part owner of the family-run Cafť Roux restaurants in Noordhoek and Cape Town's Shortmarket Street.

Red Road To Freedom - A History of the South African Communist Party 1921?2021 (Paperback): Tom Lodge Red Road To Freedom - A History of the South African Communist Party 1921–2021 (Paperback)
Tom Lodge
R380 R289 Discovery Miles 2 890 Save R91 (24%) In stock

This book is the product of many years’ research by Lodge, whose Black Politics in South Africa since 1945 (1983) established him as a leading commentator on South African politics, past and present.

2021 will mark the centenary of the foundation of the Communist Party of South Africa (CPSA) and today’s South African Communist Party (SACP, founded in 1953 after the proscription of the CPSA) will be extremely fortunate to have the milestone marked by a scholarly work of this calibre. Since 1994, many memoirs have been written by communists, and private archives have been donated to university and other collections. Significant official archives have been opened to scrutiny, particularly those of South Africa and the former Soviet Union. It is as if a notoriously secretive body has suddenly become confiding and confessional! While every chapter draws upon original material of this sort, such evidence is supported, amplified, illuminated and challenged by the scholarship of others: the breadth of secondary sources used by the author reflects what may well be an unrivalled familiarity with the scholarly literature on political organisations and resistance in twentieth century South Africa.

Lodge provides a richly detailed history of the Party’s vicissitudes and victories; individuals – their ideas, attitudes and activities – are sensitively located within their context; the text provides a fascinating sociology of the South African left over time. Lodge is adept at making explicit what the key questions and issues are for different periods; and he answers these with analyses and conclusions that are judicious, clearly stated, and meticulously argued.

Without doubt, this book will become a central text for students of communism in South Africa, of the Party’s links with Russia and the socialist bloc, and of the Communist Party’s changing relations with African nationalism – before, during and after three decades of exile.

We would all love to eat less carbohydrates and switch to a low-carb diet, but many of us think we just do not have the time. We believe that low-carb cooking and baking are time consuming, because you have to start from scratch, and it involves specialised ingredients which may be expensive or hard to find. Not so, says Vickie de Beer, who believes the problem lies in the fact that we have become afraid of the kitchen and lost the know-how of basic cooking techniques. The truth is that you can still cook nutritional and flavourful meals without refined carbohydrates even when you are pressed for time.

In Low-carb Express, Vickie shows that with a little planning and better time management, you can cook healthy meals in a cinch that will not only benefit you and your family’s overall health, but might also benefit your budget. In Low-carb Express, you plan your meals around your available time. Whether you have five minutes to whip up a nutritionally dense egg scramble or immune-boosting smoothie, or half an hour to make a delicious low-carb bobotie or the best-ever low-carb cupcakes, Vickie proves that there is no such thing as too little time to make healthy food choices.

With recipes that take between five and thirty minutes to prepare, there really are no more excuses!

Kojo Baffoe embodies what it is to be a contemporary African man. Of Ghanaian and German heritage, he was raised in Lesotho and moved to South Africa at the age of 27. Forever curious, Kojo has the enviable ability to simultaneously experience moments intimately and engage people (and their views) sincerely, while remaining detached enough to think through his experiences critically. He has earned a reputation as a thinker, someone who lives outside the box and free of the labels that society seeks to place on us.

Listen to Your Footsteps is an honest and, at times, raw collection of essays from a son, a father, a husband, a brother and a man deeply committed to doing the internal work. Kojo reflects on losing his mother as a toddler, being raised by his father, forming an identity, living as an immigrant, his tussles with substance abuse, as well as his experiences of fatherhood, marriage and making a career in a fickle industry. He gives an extended glimpse into the experiences that make boys become men, and the battles that make men discover what they are made of, all the while questioning what it means to be ‘a man’.

A Dangerous Love - A Memoir Of Love, Obsession And Violence (Paperback): Karen Daniels A Dangerous Love - A Memoir Of Love, Obsession And Violence (Paperback)
Karen Daniels
R291 Discovery Miles 2 910 In stock

A Dangerous Love is an exhilarating, true love story that plays out in the chaos and lawlessness of the political turmoil that was South Africa in the late 80s and early 90s. The mayhem and desperation of a country whose social fabric is unravelling is mirrored in Karen Daniels’s own life, and hers is an up-close-and-personal account of life as a young woman of colour in the anarchy of early post-apartheid South Africa.

Karen Daniels was only 21 when she met Martin, a mysterious, dangerous man who, at 22 years of age, had the world at his feet. Captivated by this man, she was soon caught up in a love affair that turned into obsession and violence. Gutsy and charming, Martin wasn’t born into a life of crime and drugs, but his greed and passion soon pulled him into the underworld and he was overcome by a darkness he could not escape.

Hold your breath as Karen takes you with her on a roller-coaster ride into an abyss of armed heists, crime, and violent abuse. Her story shows how having such intense and conflicting emotions for a man – loving him and being petrified of him – is only a few heartbeats away from hate.

Karen’s eventual escape from this life is a success story that has taken her to the heights of the corporate world, and encouraged her to become an advocate for human rights and women empowerment. Her story is one of human resilience, courage and determination. It offers hope to those struggling to break free from their circumstances, and will inspire anyone who wants to live their best life and go from surviving to thriving.

"A tightly coiled story of obsession and crime that plays out in an era of lawlessness" - Terry-Ann Adams, author of Those Who Live in Cages.

A compelling and agonising story.

Durban-based journalist Glynis Horning and her husband Chris woke up one Sunday morning almost two years ago to the devastating discovery of their 25-year-old son Spencer dead in his bed. Horning’s story chronicles a parent’s worst nightmare. Establishing that his death was suicide, Horning embarks on a journey of anguished self-recrimination.

Should she not have seen the signs? Could she somehow have prevented it? As she struggles with Spencer’s decision to end his life, she has to learn to understand what the depths of depression entail. We feel Horning’s pain, and learn to understand and feel Spencer’s pain, at a visceral level.

Surrounded by loving family and friends, Horning pieces together the puzzle of Spencer’s death, writing with a brutal and heart-searing intensity of grief and loss, but also of the joys of celebrating her son’s life. This book will touch anyone who has experienced a mental health journey directly or indirectly, or a searing loss. Her wisdom and insight are extraordinary.

When President F.W. de Klerk announced the unbanning of the liberation movements on 2 February 1990, he opened the door to negotiations that would end apartheid and pave the way to democracy. But how did this moment come about? What power struggles and secret talks had brought the country to this point?

Written by two ANC veterans who were close to these events, Breakthrough sheds new light on the process that led to the formal negotiations. The book focuses in particular on the years 1984–1990 and on the skirmishes that took place in the shadows, away from the public glare, as the principal adversaries engaged in a battle of positions that carved a pathway to the negotiating table. Drawing from material in the prison files of Nelson Mandela, minutes of the meetings of the ANC Constitutional Committee, the NWC and the NEC, notes about the Mells Park talks led by Professor Willie Esterhuyse and Thabo Mbeki, communications between Oliver Tambo and Operation Vula, the Kobie Coetsee Papers, the Broederbond archives and numerous other sources, the authors piece together a compelling narrative of events.

Breakthrough demonstrates that the events that preceded the formal talks of 1990–1994 are crucial for a full understanding of South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy.
