(R230, Random Struik)
This wonderfully fresh cookbook has fast become the most-used reference in my kitchen, most probably because each and every dish featured is simple enough to cook even on the most rushed post-work evenings.
I’ve tried the lamb chops, with meat direct from the Karoo, the beef stew which will warm cold winter nights and a butternut, feta and chicken pie that is sure to appear on my dinner menu at least once a month.
As well as a wonderful collection of her own recipes, Sarah Graham has gathered the how-tos for scrumptious dishes by bloggers such as Getaway’s Sarah Duff (I’ve yet to try her spicy chickpea soup) and has compiled hints to get novice cooks started.
I’d recommend this for anyone interested in no-fuss, tasty food, from beginners to old hands at the stove. Thank goodness it’s hardcover – the pages of this must-have cookbook are going to be well-thumbed in my house.
