A great book !!! I have tried at least 20 recipes, they are all delicious and not too complicated to make, I love the book !!!
Nice looking recipes, some of which I am familiar with. I cannot wait to try the rest. Enjoyed reading about Chef Xoliswa Ndoyiya ‘a background as well. Plan to buy a copy for my female relatives.
I found the book quite by chance in a house Inwas staying in, we tried a few of the recipes and the food was delicious. I have been looking for the book ever since, and today I decided to look it up on Amazon. I am the happiest person!
