The Bulawayo Cookery Book (Paperback)
First published in 1909, Zimbabwe's earliest cookery book will entrance you with over 230 recipes for African delicacies: aromatic green fig preserve; savoury bobotie (a curried meat-loaf that reflects southern Africa's Malay heritage); zesty lemon pudding, and warm, spicy gingerbread. Zimbabwean originals, every one. More than fifty delightful contemporary advertisements, for long-established Zimbabwean companies like Puzey and Payne and Maskew Miller, lend vintage Edwardian style to this enchanting work. A brilliant book for anyone interested in the development of southern African cookery, or in Zimbabwean colonial history.
