Food from the heart is a compilation of recipes by Heleen Meyer.
It aims to recreate the food of our childhood and is unashamedly nostalgic.
Memories of childhood, food cooked by Oma and their sights smells and tastes that will transport you back to a safer, more innocent time.
Ina Paarman tells us how to do Gebakte Kaaskoekresep (Baked cheescake) and Annatjie Melck recreates one of her mother’s recipes; Skaapkop (Sheepshead). Another dish that caught my eye was Appelkooshoender (Apricot Chicken).
I would describe the recipes as down to earth, tasty, non fussy, honest to goodness no nonsense.
Beautifully photographed, the recipes are well laid out and are easy to follow.
