I first came across the book in 1999 when it first came out in South Africa courtesy of my copy of TrueLove magazine and thinking at the time I would like to buy the book, but never got round to it. A winner of the 2009 Gourmand World Cookbook Award for Best African Cuisine, ‘Cooking from Cape to Cairo’ takes you through the dishes of: Nigeria, Morocco, Ethiopia, Malawi, Egypt, Mozambique, Kenya, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Zanzibar, Swaziland, Zambia, Senegal, Lesotho, Botswana, and four diverse South African regions: KwaZulu-Natal, Venda, Transkei and the Western Cape. Let local prominent chefs, cooks and ordinary people introduce you to the mouthwatering culinary delights of their countries by sharing their recipes. The book was reissued in 2009, with a second edition published in 2010 and can be found on Amazon and at Waterstones.
Beautiful photos means it doubles up as a coffee table book, making it a lovely gift for yourself, or anyone interested in exploring the diverse range in modern African food.
