    Kostalgie

    R99,00 R450,00
    Kostalgie is a nostalgic journey of Barbara Joubert’s travels through the world, country by country. It all starts in the Karoo where she was born. Memories and recipe’s from her childhood days combine for a glance back in time, updated with a modern twist. In Paris, France she discovered that French cooking is home food – like beef cheeks cooked in red wine. Portugal is the nation of seafood and pork. Joubert lived in London for 9 months and pub food was her introduction to British cuisine and Italian homemade pasta and ricotta cheesecake was a must to make. Turkey is one of the featured countries in the book. Although Joubert has never actually been there, she was inspired by a restaurant called Anatoli and felt she had to add that to the book. Africa’s wonderful spicy dishes bring the book to a close. The photography by Micky Hoyle is beautifully illustrative of the amazing produce and cultures throughout the book. So much so you feel you can almost taste the mouth-watering dishes brought to life by his stunning visuals.
