Modern, accessible recipes reflect our diverse cultural heritage and vibrant peoples.
Situated at the bottom of a continent teeming with
culinary diversity, South Africa is home to a host of
different cultures. Now leading South African foodie
and bestselling author Phillippa Cheifitz provides a
delicious sampler of the rich variety of South African
culinary tradition in South Africa Eats.
Phillippa has asked 13 of SA's leading foodies, from Dorah Sitole to Mariana Esterhuizen, about their family history, roots and influences and, most importantly, for a few of their favourite recipes. Inspired by these food traditions and contemporary South African culinary trends 'We like it easy to make and delicious to eat,' says Phillippa she has also included some of her favourite 'modern South African' recipes (South Africa Eats includes approximately 80 recipes in total).
