I love this book. I recently started cooking from it again, years after receiving it as a gift. The recipes are easy to follow and well illustrated (not every dish is pictured). I particularly enjoy the occasional one-paragraph introductions; for example, as an expat this note on the fruit chutney really resonated: "This recipe, while not purporting to be the original, comes quite close in flavour to a bottle of Mrs Ball's best."The recipes cover the wide range of culinary influences in South African cooking, from Dutch vegetables, French confiture (aka konfyt) and English roasts to the delicious bite of Malay cooking, not to mention Boerekos like geelrys, green bean stew, melktert and malvapoeding.And last but not least, the true mark of quality in a cookbook: It was first published in 1996 (by CNA as "A Taste of Tradition"); I have the 2001 edition; and the current product was apparently issued in 2008.
I read the book cover to cover and can't wait to try some of the recipes. I love traveling to South Africa and really enjoy the food which is a mix of so many cultures and unique to SA. The recipes were clear and took the mystery out of dishes I love.
