About the Author
English-born Josie Stow was a private chef to the family of children's author Roald Dahl before moving to Africa to work for some of the continent's leading safari reserves, including Makalali and Tswalu Desert Reserve. Her innovative menus incorporate authentic recipes and ingredients from all over Africa, seasoned with Josie's unique sense of fun. Photographer Jan Baldwin has been a close friend of Josie since they worked together on the successful book Recipes from Gypsy House. Jan is one of Britain's leading food and interior photographers and her work appears regularly in World of Interiors, Harpers & Queen and leading national newspapers. She has travelled extensively throughout Africa and won awards for her landscape pictures.

Although some of the recipes don't _quite_ work - the pineapple beer needs a lot longer to ferment than the time given - the book makes up the points for having beautiful photography and giving you the feel of being on safari in Africa.
Its worth buying if you're new to African cooking, but its also worth giving it a go if you already have a collection of African books. My mum's South African and my copy keeps mysteriously disappearing when she's visiting and then turning up in her bookcase!
