basil-pasta-in-a-tomato-cup-best-recipe-680x680 My South Africa trip (like all my trips) was very centered around eating (ok, like all my life). I love the farm-to-table style that so many of the places we visited honored. Throughout the trip, I kept seeing a cookbook entitled South Africa Eats displayed in restaurants, shops, and hotels. It was award-winning, quite heavy, and not-so-cheap, so I decided to buy it online once I got home instead. Big mistake.
I couldn't find it anywhere and ended up having to order it from South Africa which took many, many weeks and many, many U.S. dollars. But alas, it arrived and it is stunning. Page after page with delights I can't wait to share with you.
