Product Description

Product Description

Recipes from the “big cities” in South Africa. Don’t worry, they don’t start with “Kill and field-dress a Cape Buffalo.” Most of the ingredients can be found in the average kitchen.

South Africa has a history of foreign “visitors” and occupiers. Notably it was a colony of Holland for quite a while. It’s southern ports were call centers for ships, mostly European, that were “rounding the horn” going to or from the Orient. As a result, the country has a rich diversity of both indigenous as well as European (especially Dutch) culture. That influence is represented in the 158 delicious recipes within this book.

All measurements have been converted to U.S. measurements (cups, pints, ounces, teaspoons, etc.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Delicacies from Around the World 26 Jun 2014
By Samuel J. White - Published on
One of the most diverse and interesting cookbooks you'll ever read, Diane Kersey's "The South African Cookbook" has over 150 recipes for whatever you're in the mood for or if you want to try something very different & new.

As mentioned in the product description, South Africa was/is a melting pot of various cultures thanks to European merchants of all kinds stopping by going to and from the Orient. This means that many, many recipes for a wide variety of food, ranging from salads to entrées to desserts of all kinds. From chicken to lamb to the various fruits and vegetables, this cookbook will teach you how to prepare all manner of food. Some recipes are simple and straightforward while others are long and elaborate, but all sounds quite tasty. It even has links for the more unknown equipment and ingredients to help you learn about them and what they can do for you, as well as "mini-recipes" within some recipes for toppings and fillings the recipe especially calls for. Not to mention a few mouth watering pictures.

So don't let the title fool you. There are all kinds of interesting--some fascinating--and delicious dishes of all kinds. Some sounds lot they'll take (a lot) more work than others, but they sound like they'll be totally worth it!

Although there are other South African Cookbooks out there, this one is really good. It gives a lot of different recipes and easy to use. I loved the fact they there is a link to a website that explains an unknown item or method for a layman to understand I shall definitely recommend this book to my friends and the price is reasonable.
