Product Features

1. Beer Safari: Exploring Craft Beer in SA: Following the success of African Brew, the first-ever book to showcase the South African craft beer scene, beer-centric author Lucy Corne is back with a second homage to hops and grain.
Beer Safari takes readers on a journey through the microbreweries of South Africa, stopping to chat to each brewer along the way. The book is laid out geographically to assist the reader in planning his or her own beer safari. Look out for the ‘Big Five Pints’ – the author’s pick of the very best South African craft beers. There is also space for beer aficionados to scribble their own tasting notes alongside each brewery’s beer menu. Beer Safari is the only South African beer book whose author has, in person, visited every one of the 100-plus breweries to get the brewers’ stories, photograph their often-quirky brewing setups and of course, to taste their beers. Peppered between the inspiring tales of passionate brewers, are snippets of essential beer knowledge – ideal for the ‘beginner’ – alongside checklists that will appeal to newbie beer drinkers and veterans alike. Whether readers are looking for family-friendly beery weekends away, the cutest brewpubs with the finest views or a list of where to go for South Africa’s hoppiest ales, Beer Safari is a comprehensive and user-friendly guide. The directory showcases everything needed to continue the beer journey – for those who prefer to enjoy other people’s wares, there are recommendations for liquor stores and bars offering a supreme selection of beer. Those who yearn to brew their own will find information on homebrewing stores, courses and clubs throughout the country. Written in Corne’s signature light-hearted style, and with a fresh, vibrant design, Beer Safari perfectly captures the exciting and unpretentious nature that characterises the South African craft beer scene.

3. Flower Loom Blooms: Most needle-crafters will have bags of unused yarn and thread of various types lying about. Flower Loom Blooms shows you how to turn spare yarn into fabulous floral decorations that can be used for a multitude of projects. Flower looming is simple, quick and fun. There are detailed instructions for making 30 different flowers - including a chart, written instructions and a large colour photograph. The flowers can be used straight off the loom or you can crochet around them to create beautiful floral motifs. Each of the designs can be used on its own as an embellishment, or they can be joined together to make a wide variety of items. Author Haafner Linssen provides five inspirational ideas with full instructions. The book includes all the know-how required to make your own flowers, including advice on yarn and colour selection, as well as step-by-step looming and crochet techniques.

4. Fout by ons Sterre: Die oorspronklike Engelse roman – The Fault in Our Stars – is ’n internasionale blitsverkoper waarvan ook ’n baie suksesvolle rolprent gemaak is. Die bekende skrywer en kunstenaar, Tinus Horn, het die boek op ’n sensitiewe manier in Afrikaans vertaal as Die fout by ons sterre. Ondanks die mediese wonderwerk wat gewasse laat krimp en vir haar ’n paar jaar koop, stuur Hazel se lewensverhaal op die einde af; haar diagnose het die inhoud van die laaste hoofstuk bepaal. Maar wanneer ’n uiters aantreklike omwenteling met die naam Augustus Waters by die kankerondersteuningsgroep vir kinders instap, word Hazel se storie van voor tot agter herskryf. Rou, dapper, oneerbiedig en vol insig, Die fout by ons sterre is tot dusver die bekroonde skrywer John Green se mees ondernemende en hartroerende roman, waarin hy die lagwekkende, asembenewende en tragiese aard van die lewe en liefde skitterend verken.

6. Home Food from My Kitchen: Building on the success of her two previous books, and in support of her TV series, ‘Sarah Graham’s Food Safari’, Home. Food from my Kitchen encapsulates cooking throughout southern Africa.
Within the standard cookbook format of Brunch, Salads, Soups, Snacks, Meat, Poultry, Pasta, Seafood, Desserts and Baking, she presents food that is simple but beautiful, delicious and healthy. Most of the dishes can be prepared as easily outdoors as in your kitchen, and the recipes will work for family meals as well as casual dining with friends. The blog-themed writing style engages readers, while stories and personal anecdotes offer some insight into the inspiration behind the recipes. Traditional South African favourites are given a modern makeover and readers are introduced to some less-familiar dishes from Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique. Sarah loves to use her friends and family around the world as testers and tasters, so hesitant cooks can be assured that all her recipes really do work!

7. Homebrewer's Problem Solver: Real ale and other craft beers have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and as a result more people have been compelled to try making their own homebrew. With a range of equipment and guidance now readily available, home-brewing is more accessible than ever. However, while the actual concept behind making beer is simple – add water to barley to create and extract sugar, add hops while boiling, cool, then feed to yeast – the execution can at times seem complex and confusing. The key to bridging the gap between brewing in theory and practice is being able to spot the signs of trouble and know how to respond. Whether the reader is a first-timer trying out a new hobby or an old hand looking to produce a finely crafted artisan ale, The Home-brewer’s Problem Solver provides the information needed to nip problems in the bud and to avoid them in the first place. It contains 100 common home-brew snags and setbacks, spelling out the underlying causes and offering practical solutions. Each key stage of the brewing process is tackled with accompanying photographs, practical tips and useful insights. Contents: The basics, Ingredients, Mashing/steeping, Boiling, Fermentation, Packaging, Equipment, Finished beer.

It’s designed to pose the question on one spread with illustrated clues, giving them the opportunity to answer or guess, and only after the page is turned is the answer revealed.
Charmingly illustrated by the author herself, I Wonder Who? will be a delight for little ones.

9. Lisa Clark Every Day: As a working mom, Lisa Clark is constantly on the clock and trying to find ways to cheat time.
