    Anatolia is a richly illustrated, entertaining and informative exploration of the regional cooking culture of Turkey. Turkish-born chef Somer Sivrioglu and co-author David Dale re-imagine the traditions of Turkish cooking, presenting recipes ranging from the grand banquets of the Ottoman empire to the spicy snacks of Istanbul's street stalls. In doing so they explain their take on the classics and reveal the surrounding rituals, myths, jokes and folk wisdom of both the old and new Turkey.More than 150 dishes are featured, and images of the recipes are complemented by specially commissioned photographs shot on location in Turkey. Feature spreads on local Turkish chefs and producers and their specialities add a fascinating layer of interest and flavour.
    Somer Sivrioglu grew up in Istanbul and moved to Sydney when he was 25. He now runs Efendy restaurant in Sydney, where he draws on a multitude of cultural influences to recreate the food traditions of his homeland. David Dale is an Australian political journalist, commentator on popular culture, and food writer. In his earlier books, David analysed how Italian cooking conquered the world. He's convinced that 'Turkish is going to be the next international invader'.

    Braai The South African Barbecue Book
    ISBN: 9781472137616
    Publication date: 01/08/2016

    If anyone knows how to braai, or barbecue, it is Jan Braai, and he knows what people need to know about how to braai: how to make a good fire - with wood - and how to confidently cook a great meal over the coals. He has braaied with thousands of South Africans almost every day since the launch of South Africa's National Braai Day (held each year on 24 September), which he founded to bring all South Africans together through their shared love of cooking over an open fire. The day's patron is Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town Desmond Tutu, who 'likes a T-bone steak because it is in the shape of Africa'.This is much more than simply a recipe book - it is an indispensable instruction manual for braaing, or barbecuing the South African way - from perfect steaks, to lip-smacking braaied chicken and lamb chops, or rack of lamb . . . or even a lamb on a spit!In his inimitable way, Jan sets out clear rules for the basic art of braaing steak and shows how, once that's been mastered, you can move on to perfecting your braai skills on lamb, chicken, pork, fish, bread, vegetables and even a pudding or two.
