Tina Bester has to be one of the most creative pastry chefs I know. I saw her recently putting a rasberry cake together and her little touch of genius was to dust the berries in cocoa power. Simple, sophisticated, but oh so effective.
She has just launched her third cookbook - Celebrate, and it’s all about having fun when entertaining.
The recipes are occasion based, and cover drinks and snacks, picnic feasts, indulgent suppers and glamorous dinner parties.
This is party food, and Tina shows you how to produce it in an easy accessible way and also how to make it all look wonderful.
It will give your food that “ooh” factor that will have guests impressed.
The photographs are stunning, as are the pictures of place settings, which are sure to stimulate the readers creativity.
Tina’s book costs an affordable R165 and is available in all decent bookshops.
