‘The food in this book, that comes from my kitchen, is eaten at my table, and will be eaten at yours, is the food I have always loved cooking. It doesn’t require technique, dexterity or expertise, none of which I lay claim to. Life is complicated; cooking doesn’t have to be.’ Nigella Lawson’s At My Table is a celebration of the food she loves to cook. Lots of warm, comforting dishes, some inspirational (but not daunting) twists on classics … think Indian-spiced chicken and potato traybake, chilli mint lamb cutlets, emergency brownies (aren’t they all?) and white chocolate cheesecake. ‘Happiness is best shared,’ writes Nigella … and these are dishes you’ll make, and share with family and friends, again and again.

Oh gosh … if you’re too busy, or too nervous, to cook … Jamie’s new 5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food is going to be your new best (kitchen) friend. Each recipe uses only five (carefully chosen) ingredients … it’s all about minimum effort, maximum impact. Think dishes like Crazy Simple Fish Pie – flaky smoked haddock, spring onions, spinach and Cheddar, topped off with crisp filo and ready to tuck into in less than 30 minutes. Super food, super easy, super tasty. Yes please. Sells for R430, Get It Book Club price R344.
Tahini and halva brownies. Saffron, orange and honey madeleines. Cinnamon pavlova with praline cream and fresh figs. Sweet is a heavenly baking and desserts cookbook, in which Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh offer up page after page on cakes, biscuits, tarts, puddings and ice creams … all with Ottolenghi’s hallmarks of fresh, evocative ingredients, exotic spices and complex flavourings … think rose petal, saffron and aniseed, orange blossom, pistachio and cardamom. Too, too delish. Sells for R520, Get It Book Club price R416.
