Description: In little over three hundred years, one of the world's most intriguing and diverse cuisines has evolved at the southern tip of Africa.
The challenge of capturing for posterity this ongoing, ever-changing -- and largely undiscovered -- culinary evolution has been a fascinating, awe-inspiring task for author Lannice Snyman and photographer Andrzej Sawa, South Africa's foremost food writing, styling and photographic team, who also published the book. They spent seven years traveling the length and breadth of the country to track down historical and regional delicacies, studying -- and photographing -- the multi-cultural lifestyle of the population.
The result is the keenly awaited Rainbow Cuisine, a book which, for the first time, encompasses the food of all the peoples of the country, and sets them against the grand backdrop of South Africa's scenic splendor.
The insightful, informative text explores the human and culinary history of seven geographical regions, and traces the local diet from the days when the land was inhabited by hunter-gatherers and pastoralists. through the arrival of European settlers and folk from eastern lands, on to modern times.
Rainbow Cuisine takes the reader on a travelogue as well as a gastronomic tour. It is a book to browse through, to read and to cook from.
Condition: Good condition.
