Cape Mediterranean: The Way We Love to Eat

We rated this book:


Here is an incredibly beautiful book that you will certainly enjoy having in your cookbook collection. It gives an enticing overview of the types of foods eaten in South Africa. This is a new, just-waiting-to-be-discovered cuisine that combines the fresh, flavorful and healthy ingredients typical of the Mediterranean, such as fish, fresh vegetables, and legumes, with the heartier fare of more northern climes, including lots of bread and meats. It is a brilliant combination, and the gorgeous photos, which accompany each recipe, transport you there. The recipes themselves are not difficult to follow, they are written very clearly with both standard and metric measurements. Readers will appreciate the clear directions which walk you through some trickier places. Some of these recipes do become quite complicated and will require a significant time commitment, and can feel intimidating at times, especially as they ask for ingredients that are, apparently, common in South Africa but may be more difficult if not impossible to find in other areas. Even so, there are plenty of amazing recipes here that take only a little time and effort, with easy-to-find ingredients, that will give you a delicious taste of Cape Mediterranean food and leave you hungry for more.
