Also, especially appreciate that profits go to various charitable organizations in Botswana.
As a chef in Botswana I snapped up the book for inspiration and for the expected wry comment on life here, and I have not been disappointed. Although the local 'cuisine' is fairly plain, it is indeed substantial and undemanding (unless you happen to be a member of the bovine crowd, who live well - to a point).
Right of way belongs to livestock in Botswana and the languid pace described in the book(s) is redolent of reality indeed.
I bought a few copies (3) which have winged their respective ways to exotic spaces like Australia.
Reading or cooking, you get the vast sunsets, the whiff of the fire, and the winter bush smells as you trip through recipes and gastronomic admonitions. - not so sure of the doughnuts tho - not so traditional - must have arrived courtesy of an expat....
Oh, and great evocative pics by the way....
