Meat Manifesto - Proper and Delicious
Meat Manifesto: Proper and Delicious offers a practical and considered guide on how to choose meat, how to butcher it and how to cook it. Andy believes you can’t sell meat unless you know what to do with it and, in between personal food philosophies and agricultural insights, the book celebrates various cuts of meat, by introducing readers to them and offering delicious recipes best suited to each specific one. Andy smokes, grills and roasts his way through beef, pork, lamb, venison, poultry and even goat as recipes range from exotic (tongue, ears and offal) to basic (how to grill a pork chop). The book will explain how to make bacon at home but also why you should be eating grass-fed beef, as opposed to the feedlot. It will show you how to butcher a chicken at home but also explain how to best cook it. It is meticulously researched but presented in an approachable way. The end goal is to walk people through various meat recipes, sure, but also to strengthen the reader’s relationship with their supply chain by asking them to consider if they really are happy with the status quo.
"My food philosophy is simple: begin with love … this book takes you on a journey of the food I grew up with – the food I simply cannot go without. I hope that it inspires home cooks and chefs and reminds us all that nothing is more important than doing what you love and doing it with passion." – J’Something

As a working mom, Lisa Clark is constantly on the clock and trying to find ways to cheat time. There are days where she literally mothers her twin tweens remotely from her phone, making sure they have arrived home safely, that they have changed out of their school clothes, that they are doing their homework or are on their way to horse-riding. And when her day gets busier, the last decision she wants to make is what to cook her family for dinner. In Everyday shares some insights into how to provide healthy, balanced and quick recipes for the mom (or dad) on the move!
The book is divided into 10 chapters, each starting off with a basic recipe and then followed by several others that show how to turn one quick meal into several appetising dishes. From muesli, tomato sauce and roasted vegetables to fish, chicken, pastry and sponge cake, there is sure to be a recipe to inspire your everyday cooking.
Sweet - Delectable Vanilla, Caramel, Chocolate And Fruit Treats
Sweet – a word that in the culinary realm conjures up notions of decadence, irresistible deliciousness, indulgence and yes, basically palate bliss. Those treats we crave when we’re happy, sad or in need of a pick-me-up, and which make the world feel like a wonderful place. These are what Samantha Linsell presents in Sweet – and so much more! The dizzy array of sweet temptations will make your head spin and take you back to that state of excited contemplation that you last experienced as a child before a birthday party. Cakes, tarts, butters, confectionery sweets, muffins, biscuits, bars, pastries, sauces, puddings, beverages, ice creams, preserves, sorbets, mousses, scones – they’re all there. But unlike the sweet treats of childhood, Samantha offers a very adult twist to many a traditional offering, such as Vanilla and Baileys® French toast bake, and Chocolate waffles with bourbon butterscotch sauce. And if you really need to salve your conscience, all the recipes in one of the chapter include fruit.
As if the recipes titles aren’t sufficient to set the tastebuds alight, special mention should be made of the photography. Sam is a food stylist par excellence and the photographs (she took them herself) are sure to kick that last vestige of resistance into the wild yonder. The only sensible thing to do is to yield to temptation and move into the kitchen.

Vegetarian Sheet Pan Cooking
What’s not to love about sheet pan cooking? It is super- convenient, healthy, easy on the washing up and, as Liz Franklin proves here in 101 inspired meat-free recipes, big on flavour! More and more of us are cutting out animal protein and products from our diets, or at very least reducing them. Liz Franklin reveals how all manner of truly scrumptious dishes can be created when oven, sheet pan and vegetables conspire. Most of the recipes are built on a rainbow of roasted vegetables, grains, cheese and vegan sources of protein, but there are also recipes for things you might not associate with oven cooking too, such as fabulous fritters, glorious soups and the best- ever baked porridge. Taking their lead from dishes enjoyed all around the world, recipes include delicious dishes from the Mediterranean, Middle East, Africa and the Americas as well as ideas designed to showcase your own local seasonal produce.

With its generous invitation to good cooking that is easy and delectable this book is a must-have for every South African home cook.
