Fatima Sydow Cape Malay Cooking: My Story, my heritage


National treasure Fatima Sydow is back with another helping of must-try recipes. In this book Fatima takes us with her on a nostalgic journey through her memories of the many  important feasts celebrated in her Cape Malay culture. Starting with old-school family recipes from her upbringing on the Cape Flats she shares stories of Ramadaan, Labarang, a wedding in the community and fond recollections of the festive season, Gatti’s ice creams and Bashew’s cooldrinks. Woven through her memories are recipes for salt and pepper chicken, her dad’s favourite sugar bean curry, a delectable bread pudding, dhal curry, Ramadaan boeka plates, Labarang sweet treats to indulge in with a cup of tea, desserts for the whole family – and her ultimate festive season braai ideas. Fatima’s foolproof recipes are always a celebration: an unforgettable combination of taste, abundance, and love.
