9780624047469: Cooking from Cape to Cairo

Just named the Winner of the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for Best African Cuisine!!

Palates weary of pasta are turning to Africa cuisine, which is about to become the next craze in the kitchen. Cooking from Cape to Cairo is the product of a culinary tour of 19 African destinations: Nigeria, Morocco, Ethiopia, Malawi, Egypt, Mozambique, Kenya, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Zanzibar, Swaziland, Zambia, Senegal, Lesotho, Botswana, and four diverse South African regions: KwaZulu-Natal, Venda, Transkei and the Western Cape.

In each country and region, local cooks - both prominent restaurant or hotel chefs and ordinary people – share their recipes with Dorah Sitole, editor of True Love magazine, the biggest magazine for African women in southern Africa. Regional recipes and photographs provide a peek at the culture out of which the cuisine developed. In addition, a guide to the different ingredients, as well as suggested substitutes or equivalents, is provided. The book also contains a full index of recipes and ingredients.

Review:

Cooking From Cape To Cairo by Dorah Sitole and True Love Magazine: is not just another cook book. This is one for yur coffee table and for fascinating reading as well. The author traveled throughout Africa, visiting chefs in famous restaurants and visiting in humble native huts to learn what and how the favorite dishes of guests and locals are parepared. She was able to work beside those preparing the local dishes in their kitchens or open hut cook areas and learn just how they make the delicious and exotically seasoned cuisine from locally available produce, fish, foul, and flesh. Many of these dishes are simple to prepare and she lists easy substitutes when ingredients are not readily available where you live. The book contains about ten favorites dishes from each of nineteen African countries. Additionally she has a beautiful color photo of a local woman in her native dress of each area and enticing photographs of many of the dishes. Each chapter tells a bit about the place and its habits, so the book is a brief geography and socialogy lesson, as well. It is a beautiful, collector cookbook you will want to own, display, and use.
