New book alert! Indulge your South African food nostalgia with Simply Seven Colours by Zola Nene
More about the book!
Zola Nene is back with a third book, this time celebrating the diverse cultural heritage of South Africans through the wonderful tradition of sharing meals!
Simply Seven Colours will be out on 3 September 2022 from Penguin Random House SA.
In Simply Seven Colours, Zola gives praise to the uniquely South African seven-colour (or several-colour) concept with a selection of more simply delicious recipes that tap into the heart of our food nostalgia, with a focus on going back to basics.
The idea of Simply Seven Colours is for you to create your own unique seven-colour menu, by picking recipes from different chapters or ‘colours’.
From green, yellow, orange, brown, white, red, a rainbow of colours and, of course, desserts to round off your seven-colour meal, this book is sure to bring you more simply delicious joy.
