  • Raising Superheroes by Tim Noakes

    The Real Meal Team (Tim Noakes, Jonno Proudfoot and Bridget Surtees) has just released Raising Superheroes. This is a revolutionary way to feed children, not to be misunderstood as a no-carb diet book, but rather as advocating low sugar, low refined carbohydrate meals. His book is simply jam(sugarfree!)-packed with recipes for different age groups. There is also a really handy section on Kitchen Staples with more recipes and tips for stocking your kitchen with the basics – like stocks for soups, sauces and minces for freezing and handy future use.

    Following the hue and cry of a comment taken out of context on Twitter about weaning babies, Noakes has been much in the media lately. But paging through both these books, I’m struck with the sheer ‘good sense’ of what they advocate. Neither is necessarily better, but both are a great source of information and new recipe material.

  • Real Food, Healthy, Happy Children by Kath Megaw

    To quote Kath Megaw: “When meals incorporate taste experiences, social interaction and emotional connections, along with high nutritional impact, the result is altogether healthier, happier children”.

    Subtitled A Low-Carb Solution for the Whole Family, leading paediatric dietician Kath Megraw has co-written her book with Daisy Jones (author of Star Fish), Phillipa Cheifitz (author of Lazy Days) and Jane-Anne Hobbs (author of Scrumptious). This is not the children’s version of a diet book, but rather, a more holistic look at feeding your family natural, whole foods, with attention to reducing overall sugar, carbohydrate levels and avoiding the additives present in processed foods. The core concepts she puts into practice are: eat living food; drink water; let them eat fat; ditch the wonder bread; and, no sugar. She combines these concepts as a guide in a whole collection of healthy, easy and affordable recipes. There are also tables of information regarding the dietary requirements of your child, from weaning to adolescence, with a holistic outlook on their physical, emotional and mental development, and suggested recipes to coincide with their needs. This is a great South African cookbook for the whole family – and in line with a world where we are increasingly mindful of what we eat, and where our attitudes towards food and eating are shifting towards smaller portions of healthier, wholesome foods.

    Nourishment and well-being are two words that immediately come to mind when one opens Retreat. In it, Daniel Jardim (author of those beloved local vegetarian classics Quiet Food and The Cake the Buddha Ate) shows how cooking and eating can transform one’s life and reinvigorate one’s senses. Subtitled The Joy of Conscious Eating, this book takes one through the seasons, teaching how to use what nature provides to prepare food that is both exciting and comforting – and how to be appreciative of what it is so easy to take for granted. Here are recipes for, amongst a bounty of other dishes, Watercress and Avocado Soup, Ratatouille Terrine, Pear and Fig Crumble, Aduki and Shitake Shepherd’s Pie. This is soul food.

  • Sababa by Tal Smith and Nirit Saban

    R280.00

    If you’ve ever eaten at either of the Sababas, you’ll be as excited as I am about this book! The delis, owned and run by sisters Tal and Nirit, are a celebration not only of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavours, of the freshest ingredients, of wholesome and uncomplicated food, but also of family and friends. And the book has been created in this same spirit: the sisters share recipes so that you can prepare your favourite Sababa dishes in your own kitchen; they share their stories and their traditions so that you can make them your own. I love this book almost as much as I love Sababa’s Rare Roast Beef Fillet and Green Bean and Baby Marrow Salad with Rocket, Shaved Parmesan and Pine Nuts!
