Cape Winelands Cuisine compiled by Hetta van Deventer-Terblanche (Human & Rousseau, R450).

Halfaampieskraal Celebrates by Maia du Plessis and Simon Scarboro (Human & Rousseau, R265) .
Set on 250-year-old Overberg farm Halfaampieskraal, where the old barns have been transformed into suites for everyone to stay over.
Delightful Desserts by Marlene van der Westhuizen (Pan Macmillan, R140) Delightful Desserts is a perfect size to pack for weekends away.
It’s full of delicious puds – some simple, others more complex, but all of them absolute winners.
Occasions by Francois Ferreira (Human & Rousseau, R195) Occasions will have you rediscovering recipes you’d forgotten – remember cassata? And cheesy snoek bake?
But the poached pears (on the cover) are served with a watercress and yoghurt purée with leek julienne – a lovely twist.
Relish by Sonia Cabano (Struik Lifestyle, R220)
This book is packed with sauce, seasoning and condiment recipes, all of which are achievable at home. Sonia cooked in London for 12 years but most of us know her work as a stylist, food writer and demo chef.
Savour by Marc Hirschowitz, Karen Alsfine and Estelle Sacharowitz (Struik Lifestyle, R350)
With chapters containing over 200 recipes found under titles such as Vintage, Love, Chill and Sizzle, it certainly is a new take on understanding the language of food.

Roast lamb with roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese and warm & sticky puddings with custard.
