The first edition of Kook en geniet was first published in 1951. Over a million copies later, it has firmly established itself as a South African classic and one of the most popular local cookery titles ever.

In 2009 it was revised, updated and completely redesigned to echo its original smaller and thicker format. This current edition combines a readable, modern feel with the classic look of the original.

As indispensable to the seasoned cook as to the beginner, it contains everything you need to know about cooking – from measuring ingredients and operating ovens to the preparation of vegetables and meat or how to freeze foods – along with more than 700 recipes, specially chosen and tested – from breakfasts to mixed drinks. A large number of the dishes are beloved South African favourites.

The one cookery title no South African home can do without.
