Safaris & Spices takes you on the same journey Nico Verster experienced while travelling to all corners of Africa. It captures the essence of African food steeped in tradition and ancient recipes, while highlighting the modern diversity in the current gastronomic scene. On our food safari we start in North Africa among the Kasbahs and medinas of Morocco, following the ancient trade roots all the way past East Africa, Mozambique and Madagascar down to southern Africa. Nico effortlessly guides the reader through a colorful range of magnificent but easy-to-follow recipes. With stunning photography from award-winning Joe Dreyer, the recipes will inspire you to make your own stocks, spice mixes, chutneys, and sauces that can be used with an array of local dishes, as well as give you simple tips on making the most delicious cakes and desserts.
