It contains everything you need to know about cooking – from measuring ingredients and operating ovens to the preparation of vegetables and meat, and how to freeze foods, along with more than 700 recipes, specially tested – from breakfasts to mixed drinks, and recipes for large function catering. A large number of the dishes are beloved South African favourites. There’s also a great section about preserving foods.
The one cookery title that no South African home can do without. At Wickedfood Cooking School we use this book as a consent sauce of reference, especially for our South African cooking classes, as well as at Wickedfood Earth for ideas on preserving the bounty of fresh fruit and vegetables.
