Not only is Life on a Cape Farm a cookbook filled to the brim with delicious meals and stunning food and venue photography, but it is also a journey through these recipes into the daily activities at Bartholomeus Klip, a working wheat and sheep farm. Twin sisters, Lesley and Louise Gillett have included a tapestry of flavours and ingredients that form part of the varied menus served at Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse. The first five chapters are devoted to taking the reader through a typical day on the farm where the transition of time is marked by the daily meal schedule, which comprises the Farmhouse brunch, Tea on the farm, Snacks, drinks and game drives, Family feasts and Dinner in the conservatory. The latter two are served during the evening but at different venues on the farm. The Biscuits, breads and jams chapter includes classic recipes such as Peanut butter biscuits, Three fruit marmalade and Lemon curd. The Basics chapter equips the reader with essential recipes such as Brown chicken stock, Traditional and Latte custard and even Homemade mayonnaise. Finally the Local pantry chapter includes a useful list of all the recommended local suppliers. Bring the beauty of the venue and scrumptious farmstyle cooking into your home when paging through and making the recipes of Life on a Cape farm!
