Mma Ramotswe’s Cookbook

by Stuart Brown

Published by Polygon

For those of you who enjoyed the novels or the TV series “The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency”, this book provides the means to sample the food of Botswana and bring those memories flooding back.  Unashamedly focussed on foods for the “traditionally built” African woman, the book features recipes for lots of cakes,  biscuits and desserts, as well as stews.  You may find it difficult to source some of the ingredients, such as Baobab pods, crocodile tail,  ostrich fillet, green pawpaws, mealie meal (maize flour), and sorghum, but most of the recipes are made from ingredients easily available in the UK.  This book gives an excellent guide to Botswanan and other African food, coupled with plenty of photos, quotes from “The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” and other information about Botswana and Africa, and thus provides a tour of Botswana to delight the taste buds and the nose as well as your eyes and imagination.

RRP £18.99 in hardback.  ISBN: 9781-84697-139-6.
