birthdays, books and braaing

My father-in-law's birthday is coming up, and he really is one of those people that have everything or don't need anything. But I have a trick up my sleeve, he loves to cook and NO ONE can ever say they have enough books. Fortunately, Quivertree Publications feel the same way, and have a batch of great new books to buy and a spanking new website too. First up in the collection of cook books I am planning to give? Braai - Reuben on Fire!

The quintessential South African cooking style, Reuben takes you on a roadtrip through his past from hunting and cooking pigeons on the farms of Franschhoek as a kid, to his travels. In Braai, Reuben on Fire, he challenges you to lift your game above the simple tanning of a chop and burning of boerie.

Delving into the business of naming rites, the politics of the braai, the logistics of the braai timeline and the importance of developing a relationship with your butcher, Reuben covers the basics before getting into the meat of the matter. Throughout the book tips and tactics and wine and beer food pairings are dispersed liberally while braai myths are blown out of the water.

The dishes are unmistakably South African in flavour and feel. From new versions of standard rockstar South African ingredients to digging deep into the spectrum of what is possible on a braai, Braai − Reuben on Fire is a book for any braai fan keen to take their skills to the next level.
