Question by Sam on 2 February 2016
I want to buy a bride-to-be a cookbook for her upcoming kitchen tea. Any recommendations out there?
Any of the Nigella or Jamie Oliver books, both give easy to make at home recipies.
If it was me…. The South African illustrated cookbook. Its fun and the recipes are awesome and I can say that with confidence since I have cooked all of them.
The Readers Digest South African recipe book has amazing and classic recipes that are absolutely fool proof
Sarah Graham’s Smitten – I was given it at my Kitchen Tea and I cook from it regularly. Her recipes are straightforward and the results are delicious – I’ve tried over half the recipes so far and every one of them has been a success. As a bonus, because Sarah is South African, all the ingredients are readily available in our shops.
You can never go wrong with any of Ottolenghi’s books!
Polpo – A Venetian Cookbook – outstanding book from the genus that is Russell Norman great tasting and easy to source and make recipes, you won’t regret this buy!
Cooking for the Freezer by Julia Orbe
Not the most exciting looking book. But I have used this book extensively. Lovely South African recipes. Has very useful conversions for each recipe to cook for a larger crowd and helpful to the working person who can book in bulk, freeze and save time!
