Coming Soon: Andy Fenner’s Taking it Easy Features 20 of South Africa’s Top Chefs

Taking it EasyForthcoming from Sunbird Publishers:

Andy Fenner, freelance food writer and critic, also named one of ‘200 South Africans to Watch’ by Mail & Guardian 2011, has chosen 20 of his favourite chefs and foodies based on their individual style and food philosophies.

Taking it Easy showcases each of these chefs cooking for families and friends, offering approachable recipes that are innovative yet honest. Narrated with his special brand of wit, Andy beautifully conveys what a privilege it is to share a rare and intimate glimpse into the kitchens and dining rooms of South Africa’s best-loved chefs and foodies.

Each chapter is a culinary adventure, capturing a different story – whether it is following award-wining David Higgs around Johannesburg’s Neighbourgoods market, or joining Margot Janse at her family table in Franschhoek. With a foreword by Abigail Donnelly, editor of Eat Out and food editor of Taste magazine, Taking it Easy is a true celebration of South Africa’s biggest foodies, beautifully photographed by Lar Leslie an exceptionally talented photographer who manages to capture the very essence of what makes each chef so special.

Chefs featured: Bertus Basson, Chantel Dartnall, David Higgs, Franck Dangereux, Giorgio Nava, Cobus van der Merwe, Liam Tomlin, Luke Dale-Roberts, Margot Janse, Markus Farbinger & Liezie Mulder, Marthinus Ferreira, Massimo & Tracy Orione, Michael Broughton, Pete Goffe-Wood, Reuben Riffel, Richard Carstens and Vanessa Marx.
