For the longest time, I have wanted to compile a Recipe Book with my special recipes and those of family and friends. Then as with most things in life, change happened and my vision was temporarily shelved until now.
Originally I was going to write a “local” recipe book for Sundays River (our home in South Africa) but subsequently with Pete and I temporarily relocating to Mauritius it has grown into a juicier book including recipes from the diverse cultures of the island.
I have included in this book many great tips I have learnt and gathered over the years. I hope they will be as helpful to you as they have been for me.
Each recipe in this book is special to the person who made the contribution; so each one has particular meaning and has not just been included because it sounds nice in theory.
At the bottom of every recipe page is a section called User’s Notes where you can jot down any additional information you wish to remember about a specific recipe.
The end of each chapter has blank recipe pages for you to add your own special recipes; so this will truly be The Complete Cook Book.
I hope you enjoy using each recipe with as much hungry enthusiasm in which I received them.
Happy cooking, baking, eating and drinking.
