New African Cookbook
A number of years ago Sean Fitzpartick and I, posted our first blogÂ with noble intentions of producing a cookbook filled with not only African recipes but to take a fresh look at the African eating experience. From the onset the journey was incredible- not without risks and obstacles, but outnumbered by inspiring counter- moments.
The fruits of our labour became â€œHet Nieuw Afrikaans Kookboekâ€, a translated version of our manuscript The New African Cookbook, produced with Kenyan writer Carole Keingati and graphic designer Penina Njuguna. We are very proud of the results!
â€œOpening someoneâ€™s kitchen cupboard is like shining a light on their deepest secrets. It reveals not only recipes, but family feuds, political ties and hidden desiresâ€¦â€ all hints at what it means to be African.â€
