Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In this unusual and thoroughly entertaining book, Stow, Roald Dahl's former private chef (and author of Recipes from Gypsy House, detailing that period in her life), and photographer Baldwin provide a vivid portrait of their stay at an African safari reserve, from "Wake-Up, Rise and Shine" to "Dinner Under the Camel Thorn Trees." When Stow first took over the kitchen at a game preserve in South Africa, she found that most such establishments were serving European-style food. Drawing on the knowledge and experience of the cooks working with her, she developed a repertoire of traditional and modern African dishes, such as Bresaola-Style Venison and Roast Vegetable Pizzas with Harissa (cooked in an oven made from "a vacated termite mound"). Beautiful photographs of African nightcapes, people, and Stow's food illustrate the text. Highly recommended.

As a South African and having spent time in the USA, I tried to think of ingredients etc that one would need if you were living outside of Africa, most seem easy to obtain. It's a beautiful book both in recipes and photos.Being a professional photographer it's a fun book to look at for the photos as well as different style of cooking. Most recipe books are static and don't motivate me into purchasing it, but this one caught me. It has a great African feel. Worth buying.

I really have enjoyed this book. It gives you an insight into African cooking and the beautiful scenery. I had the pleasure of meeting Josie Stow at Tswalu and sampled some of the recipes in the book. They are incredible. Most of the items are easy to prepare and the photos will make you want to go there!

Format: Paperback
I think that this cookbook represents the best of a chef who has to cook inventive meals under demanding conditions in the African bush and countryside.

It is amazing that the meals come out as pictured in anyone's kitchen without the dust, bugs and wild animals that the chef had to deal with when she created them originally.

Great book to round out your international collection of cookbooks in your library.

Excellent book and I highly recommend it!
