Ready Steady Cook about 15 years ago had us sitting on the edges of our seats as celebrity chef and their guests were given a goodie bag filled with food items and asked to cook as many dishes as possible in 20 minutes.
And how they rushed through it – and delivered.
We got to know so many people who later went on to greatness and indeed visited South Africa for the various Good Food and Wine Shows which take place in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.
Here you have a lovely ittle book for your kitchen cook book rack. Each dish will take about 20 minutes to prepare and some will take you only ten.
The book is divided into four seasons – so remember to reverse them for South Africa!
It is beautifully illustrated and just full of recipes – one for each day of the year – offering current food fads and flavours. There are lots of classical recipes and tastes from the middle and far east.
Read Steady Cook 365 is by BBC books.
