Mastering the kitchen can seem pretty intimidating, especially when confronted with Instagram and TV chefs who seem to do everything with ease while, at the same time, relating a cute anecdote on camera. I've found that what most people want is simply to learn to prepare delicious and visually appealing food - the kind that will gain likes on social media - which is what inspired this cookbook.
This book was written and compiled with YOU in mind, and takes into consideration all the different occasions a South African kitchen might have to cater for. The recipes use simple ingredients that are probably already in your pantry or fridge, and if not, they’re readily available in all our favourite grocery stores.

The safari design aesthetic has yoked hi-tech, high-end architecture with traditional low-tech African craft and fused them in a new genre of highly original, courageous and soulful – even sexy – architecture and interiors. This is design that, while rooted in Africa, possesses an international appeal that is beginning to influence aesthetic ideas the world over.
Safari Style Africa showcases a selection of lodges where these elements of design dialogue beautifully with the environment.

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 ...
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.

Throughout the book tips and tactics and wine and beer food pairings are dispersed liberally while braai myths are blown out of the water.

“After about 15 years of fighting, pain, illness, injections, fatigue, tablets, tablets and more tablets … I learned to give my body what it needed to fight by itself, and I started to cope better. The results were less pain, less inflammation and a far better quality of life. In fact the only thing that changed was my diet, and this influenced my whole life.”
Only available in English.
A funky, proudly Afrikaans cookbook, [in english] combining accounts of farm life, doilies, koeksisters and other Afrikaans icons. Anna Carolina draws on the myriad influences in South African urban culture to present something uniquely contemporary, celebrating a rich heritage.
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.
