Top ten home cooks launch

Amid much excitement our Top Ten Home Cooks book was launched at the Vineyard hotel's Splash Café last.

The ten finalists and their partners were joined by a select group of invited guests to celebrate the arrival of the book, and await the announcement of the overall winner.

The book is all we had hoped for, and more. It represents the contributors – their warmth, originality, generosity, elegance and style, but above all their lack of pretension. Any of the ten finalists could have been the winner, but in the end one did outscore the others. Nicky Brecher of Pongola won R50 000 from Leserskring/Leisure Books and a contract with Metz Press for her own book. We are really looking forward to working with Nicky. In the meantime, get you copy of Top Ten Home Cooks – not only for yourself, but also as a wonderful and much appreciated gift. It is brimful of delicious tried and tested recipes, and all you will ever need to cook like our finalists – from the heart.

Many thanks to all the contributors, Lana, Christelle, Alana, Liezl, Lindie, Ivan, Andrew, Robert and the team at Tien Wah Press. And to Monean for arranging such an apt celebration. What a journey this was!
