Overview

After 350 years of settlement, British African cookery heritage draws on a creative mix of Tudor spices, Indian feasting, Malaysian gastronomy, Victorian gentlemen's club dinners, and Boer survival rations. Across the snow-capped mountains of Uganda to arid northern Nigeria; from the golden beaches of South Africa to the humid rain forests of Zambia - European communities in English-speaking Africa developed a distinctive and delicious cuisine. Engaging memories and exclusive contributions from distinguished Africans including Dr Mangosuthu Buthelezi, Peter Hain MP, Lord Joffe, Prue Leith, Matthew Parris and Archbishop John Sentamu bring life to over 180 traditional recipes. Including a treasury of vintage illustrations and original advertisements from the region, this book provides the first comprehensive overview of the unique cookery tradition of British Africa.
