Wholesome

I spent months researching and writing my latest book, and I can’t believe that it's finally here. WHOLESOME hit shelves in April 2017 and is filled with 100 nourishing sugar, gluten and carb-conscious recipes for eating well.

For me, this book is about putting goodness in, and getting goodness out. It’s about food that is conscious of refined sugars and refined carbohydrates, and that nourishes our minds and our bodies, but is still full of colour and character, and fits within the context of our busy lives. These are my favourite beautiful, simple, wholesome recipes that are made for sharing around full and merry tables.

The book has already been featured in Food & Home Magazine, Women's Health, Woman & Home Magazine, Elle Magazine and many other publications. You can read more via the link below.

Home

This book is about warm hearts, full tables, empty plates. Family, friends and feasting. It also has an African flavour that I love, and I feel stupidly lucky that Home was nominated in the prestigious International Gourmand Cookbook Awards as best in the African cuisine category.

Within the standard cookbook format of Brunch, Salads, Soups, Snacks, Meat, Poultry, Pasta, Seafood, Desserts and Baking, there is food that is simple but beautiful, delicious and healthy. Most of the dishes can be prepared as easily outdoors as in your kitchen, and the recipes will work for family meals as well as casual dining with friends.

Traditional South African favourites are given a modern makeover and readers are introduced to some less-familiar dishes from Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique.

Smitten

I like to think of Smitten as a slightly older and wiser sibling to my first book, Bitten. A little more grown up and sophisticated, but without being complicated or stuck-up. A little magical but still practical.

To make our busy lives easier, the recipes in Smitten are conveniently divided into categories such as Nibbles, Speedy Suppers, Feast and Slow. Whether looking to knock up a quick dish on a week night or feed a party of eight on a lazy Sunday afternoon, there is something here for everyone.

The book shares recipes that give the context, inspiration and passion behind each dish as well, capturing Sarah’s philosophy that every meal has a story. There are handy hints for the novice and reluctant cook, cooking and baking tips, and kitchen and baking starter kits. Also included is a useful Meals for a Month guide that takes the guesswork out of the eternal question ‘What should I cook tonight?’ Each dish is complemented with a wine suggestion to help round off the perfect meal.

Bitten

Bitten was my very first book. For that reason, and many others, it's very dear to my heart. Also, after almost two years, it's now back in stock.

This is how the official description on the publisher’s website reads:

“Bitten is a fun, funky, relevant recipe book for people who love life, love food, love their friends, and love to squeeze the last drop from their time and money. It is a collection of simple, down-to-earth and healthy, no-mess-no-fuss recipes that almost anyone can cook. A companion of convenience, the blog-themed writing style ensures that the writer/reader relationship is established right off the bat.”

Bitten is a quirky cross between a food memoir and a cookbook with un-intimidating recipes. Besides delicious dishes, Bitten features handy hints for the novice and reluctant cook, cooking and baking tips, and kitchen and baking starter kits. Also included is a useful 'Meals for a Month' guide that takes the guesswork out of the eternal question: ‘What should I cook tonight?’ Each dish in this nifty guide is complemented with a wine suggestion to help round off the perfect meal.
