One of Africa’s first English-language cookery books, newly released over a century after its first publication!

Original copies of Mrs A. R. Barnes’ 1890 classic cook-book and household guide are practically impossible to find. Jeppestown Press is delighted to present a new edition of this historic, useful and entertaining work.

As well as offering over 500 recipes for southern African delicacies—including sticky, ginger-flavoured melon preserve; Malay-inspired aromatic pickled fish, and spicy soetkoek biscuits—Mrs Barnes also provided her readers with instructions on making a traditional African polished-cow-dung floor; how to treat snake-bite and, the best method for discouraging mosquitoes.

A fascinating book, illustrating the process that early British settlers underwent as they adapted to life in an unfamiliar environment on the other side of the world.
