wall Street Journal
“Chock full of good food and interesting characters”
“Utterly delicious, to the very last morsel”
”Funny and sweet - but it has a hard edge and doesn’t skirt the difficult subjects of South Africa’s history or the region’s huge problem with domestic violence. It’s a culinary and linguistic treat too … The story includes recipes - and has a pleasing bite”
