I remember standing in a bookshop two years ago, picking up a cookbook with a pretty blond woman on the cover. I was immediately enticed by pages and pages filled with hearty, fresh and uncomplicated recipes and beautiful photographs. Much to my surprise and delight I discovered that the author was indeed South African. The book was bitten– writer, blogger and TV cook Sarah Graham’s first cookbook.
Her successful debut cookbook was also turned into a TV series called Bitten: Sarah Graham cooks Cape Town. Sarah’s second book, smitten, hit the shelves last month, and we met up with her to talk about macarons, babies and weekday meals.
