About the book: 
Anyone who longs for a beloved grandmother’s famous milk tart or melkkos, or a great aunt’s delicious bobotie or vetkoek, should have this book in his or her kitchen!
Traditional South African Cooking is a collecti on of well-known South African recipes that will enable the modern cook to conti nue the traditi on and produce the same delicious meals that our ancestors used to enjoy.
South African cuisine is a unique blend of the culinary art of many diff erent cultures. Dutch, French, German and Briti sh sett lers, as well as the Malays who came from the East, all brought their own recipes to this country. The subtle adaptation of these ‘imported’ recipes by the addition of local ingredients and the introduction of innovati ve (at the ti me) cooking methods resulted in an original and much-loved cuisine, that sti ll sits comfortably alongside contemporary cooking.
