Have you ever dreamed of a trip to sunny South Africa? It’s the Rainbow Nation, where warm and cold oceans meet, where Europe and Africa live side by side, where African, Dutch, Malaysian, German, Middle-Eastern, French and Indian cuisines all collide to form a rainbow of tastes…
Well, now you can send your tastebuds on a trip to South Africa! As the first of my raffle prizes in the Menu for Hope III fundraising campaign, I’m offering to send you a copy of Rainbow Cuisine. This is a lavishly illustrated, A4 size, 224 page hardcover cookbook containing the multicultural dishes that make up the Rainbow Nation’s cuisine (including koeksisters!). The book is by renowned South African food writer Lannice Snyman and photographer Andrzej Sawa and contains not only traditional recipes, but also beautiful photographs and descriptions of the provinces that make up South Africa.
And to get you in the mood, I’ll throw in a few South African goodies too. While you’re reading, you’ll need a nice cup of tea in your hand, so why not try some lemon-flavoured Rooibos tea. And to snack on, you could try my favourite and unique South African chocolate bar Peppermint Crisp – I’ve put in a two as they’re very moreish… For healthier tastes, there are two dried fruit rolls (guava and fig) – a standard of South African school lunchboxes. And for when you next get the urge to braai, I’ll send you some Ina Paarman black olive and rosemary seasoning. (if you’re within the EU I can throw in a pack of biltong, but sadly customs laws mean that this won’t be possible if you live elsewhere… sorry!).
That’s not bad for $10! So what are you waiting for? Pack your tastebuds’ little bags, buy them a couple of raffle tickets and send them off to South Africa! Click here to buy your tickets and remember to mention prize code EU25 in the "personal message" section. You can place your bids from now to 22 December and the winners will be announced on Chez Pim on 15 January.
And good luck!
