I felt inspired to revisit my grandmother's cook books when I visited my folks for Heritage Day. Louis Leipoldt was the master of the Cape Table, being born in the heart and soul of the South West Cape way of life in 1880 - this is no upstart cookery book; it is the real thing. #louisleipoldt #heritageday #heritage #capecookery #capetable #origins #food #cheflife #research #capetown #dutch

Finally, the book I have been searching for has arrived. Inside is a wealth of information relating to the history of food in a Cape Town context... including some great recipes with wild mushrooms and other veld kos. Over 80 years old and still relevant 📚
