Recipes from the Hearth features the favourite recipes of 36 of South Africa's most-loved celebrities. With a recipe for peri peri prawns from Basetsana Kumalo, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu's 'Tutu chicken', this title is an ideal gift this Christmas. The cookbook was commissioned by Business Against Crime Western Cape to capture the public's heart by capturing their stomachs. The design of the cookbook is crisp and clear. Each icon is given three double-page spreads in which they outline their lives and their successes, and why they love the particular recipe they have chosen. Not only does the reader come away with a sense of homely values, but he or she gets closer to the icons that are featured in the cookbook. Recipes from the Hearth is a celebration of family values, and in some cases nostalgia. This cookbook was also commissioned as a means to raise funds for the non-profit organisation, Business Against Crime Western Cape. Their vision is of a "safe and secure South Africa", through co-operation between business, government and the citizens of South Africa. As Dr Annelie Rabie, CEO of Business Against Crime Western Cape, emphasises "the organisation is entirely dependant on donations and contributions for its success". Recipes from the Hearth is the perfect gift, released just in time for Christmas, to be given away to friends and family. Not only does it feature a number of South African icons and their favourite family recipes in a creative design, but its sales will also contribute to the national fight against crime. This one will capture many hearts and stomachs.
