About this book:

The Afrikaans edition of Cook and Enjoy was first published in 1951. Half a million copies later, it has firmly established itself as a South African classic and one of the most popular local cookery titles ever.

Revised, updated and completely redesigned to echo its original smaller and thicker format, the new edition combines a readable, modern feel with the classic look of the original.

As indispensable to the seasoned cook as to the beginner, it contains everything you need to know about cooking – from measuring ingredients and operating ovens to the preparation of vegetables and meat or how to freeze foods – along with more than 700 recipes, specially chosen and tested – from breakfasts to mixed drinks. A large number of the dishes are beloved South African favourites.

The one cookery title no South African home can do without.

Also available in Afrikaans: Kook en geniet
