Herverpakte uitgawe van Vuurwerke binnekort beskikbaar

VuurwerkeIn dié herverpakte sagteband uitgawe van die topverkoper Vuurwerke deel die bekende en ikoniese Jan Braai sy kennis van vuurmaak en vleis met al sy aanhangers.

Jan het al met duisende Suid-Afrikaners regoor die land gebraai en verstaan wat mense wil weet oor braai.

Die boek bevat Jan se duidelike en deeglike instruksies vir die braai van steak, hoender, lamstjops, sosaties, boerewors en beesstert-potjie.

As jy dit eers bemeester het, kan jy die braairibbetjie, lamsboud of spitbraai takel. Om nie te vergeet van die ou gunstelinge soos braaibroodtjies, stywe pap, mielies en selfs ’n nagereg of twee nie.

Jan Scannell – beter bekend as Jan Braai – se groot passie is vleis en vleisbraai. Jan het Nasionale Braaidag eiehandig ’n jaarlikse Kuier en kosfees gemaak deur Erfenisdag nie-amptelik te herdoop tot Braaidag. Die een aktiwiteit wat alle Suid-Afrikaners saambind is immers om kos oor oop vure te kook.

Book launch - Johanne 14: Real South African Food by Hope Malau

Johanne 14 explores the secrets of simple, home-cooked meals in South Africa’s townships.

Told through the eyes of award-winning food writer Hope Malau, the book features authentic, traditional dishes cooked with love, and acknowledges the ability of countless unsung kitchen heroes – the mothers, fathers, grandparents and siblings – to make culinary magic with often very little.

It is a vital glimpse into South African township life; moreover, it is a celebration of culture, resilience, human spirit, community and family – through the shared meal. A head of cabbage can be cooked in so many different ways; it is inexpensive and goes with anything or nothing at all.

You can eat it raw, boil it or fry it, combine it with any other vegetable and it will give you a wholesome meal every time. Hence it was dubbed Johanne 14 – if you have cabbage you should not let your heart be troubled.

Chef Hope Malau grew up in Klerksdorp in the North West Province eating traditional Sotho food prepared by his dad, who worked in a mine kitchen. Instilled with a deep love for cooking from an early age, Hope went on to study at the Professional Cooking Academy in Rustenburg before garnering experience at various restaurants in Cape Town. Hope is currently the food editor for DRUM magazine and has also won the prestigious Galliova Food Writer of the Year for the past two consecutive ye

Book launch: foodSTUFF by Tony Jackman

The cookbook as memoir, or memoir as cookbook? With foodSTUFF, maverick food writer Tony Jackman presents us with a refreshingly original take on life and food.

He relates every heartache, every joy, and does not shy away from imparting the pain of loss of a family member or his troubled relationship with his father. The stories of his journey towards adulthood are counterbalanced by rich tales from his life. foodSTUFF has many meaty recipes, spicy poultry dishes, some of Jackman’s eccentric signature dishes, and desserts he likes to spoil his friends with.

Jackman, known in particular for his article Sliced & Diced in the Weekend Argus, invites you into his world, from humble beginnings in an English working-class family to an illustrious career as an unapologetically eccentric South African foodie, playwright and author.

foodSTUFF tosses together tales from a rich, nomadic life with masses of meaty recipes (Obies oxtail potjie, beef fillet with melted French Brie, parsley-crusted rack of lamb); spicy poultry dishes (tamarind duck curry, chicken coconut curry); a handful of signature dishes (spanspek soup, bacon-and-beer braai bread); and the desserts with which Jackman likes to spoil his friends (the chocolatiest chocolate tart ever, lemon syrup cake, pears in Chardonnay Pinot Noir with a Parmesan wafer).

Buon appetito…
