In Karoo Food, author and journalist Gordon Wright showcases the different kinds of culinary treasures the Karoo region has to offer. Through his delicious and succulent selection, Gordon traces the origins of certain key ingredients – like lamb and mutton – and tells the story that inspired each dish. From beef and pork to venison, wildfowl and even seafood, Gordon leaves no stone unturned in his quest to cover the vast expanse that is Karoo cooking. To sweeten things, a few homely dessert recipes complete the collection.
Flipping through the book, it’s clear that it was compiled with one standpoint in mind which, quite fittingly, is written on the back: “…life is too short for bad food and bad wine,” – Gordon Wright.
