Enjoy our food the Cape Mediterranean way

If you, like us, relish the Mediterranean way of eating … everyone tucking into breads and dips, tapas and salads, gorgeous roasts and seafoods … you’re going to want to get a copy of the gorgeous – GORGEOUS, we tell you – Cape Mediterranean by Ilse van der Merwe. This Stellenbosch-based foodie says, ‘In South Africa, especially the Western Cape, we love the culture of lingering, social lunch tables. We savour coming together to celebrate local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients’.

Fortunately you don’t have to live in the Cape to make, and enjoy, the dishes in her book … Winelands grape pizza bianca with feta and thyme will taste just as good in Ballito, Bo-Kaap harissa paste will be yummy in Bloem, and Cape seafood stew will go down a treat in Sandton. There are more than 75 amazing recipes that most of us will manage with ease. There are recipes here we’ll make again and again … this is without a doubt our hot buy for spring and summer. Struik, R280.
