Read the Introduction to Sarah Graham’s New Cookbook, Home: Food From My Kitchen

HomeUpon receiving her first copy of Home: Food From My Kitchen, Sarah Graham took to her food blog to write about the experience of holding her new book in her hands. She also shared the introduction she wrote to give readers an idea of what this cookbook means to her and her family.

“Warm hearts, full tables, empty plates. Family, friends and feasting” – that’s what this book is about, Graham writes, reflecting on the “many hundreds of hours that go into publishing a book”. After the introduction she reveals some of her favourite dishes recorded in the book and announces that many of the recipes are tied to the upcoming second season of her popular TV series, Sarah Graham’s Food Safari.

Read the article:

In Swahili, that beautiful lilting language that is native to parts of East Africa, safari means ‘journey’. And I love that. I love that I have had the privilege of seeing so much of our continent, and the picture it has given me of our food heritage in Africa being such a melting pot of colour and character, food that has been cooked and shared against a beautiful backdrop of lives lived in all its magnificent corners, of stories told, of meals shared around campfires, wood stoves, bbqs (braais) or full and happy tables. And I also love coming home. I love sharing the ideas and inspirations that are gathered along the way.
