About this book

Kook met blikkies en pakkies | Food & Drink

Deona Tait

The bestseller Kook met blikkies en pakkies has been in print in Afrikaans since 1997. (Due to popular demand, the new edition is now available in English for the first time, Shortcuts to Flavour.)
This book was specially written for those of us who stare at the contents of the larder and the fridge and wonder what can be conjured up from the available. Working parents and busy professionals will be equally grateful for the innovative recipes  which show how to turn ordinary store cupboard tins and packets into a meal fit for a king.
Few people will spot the difference between the mouthwatering bean soup you have prepared from a couple of tins and packets and the real McCoy. Who knew that a quick savoury bread could be produced using a few standard pantry ingredients? Not to mention the grand pies you can bake with ready-made puff pastry. Just add a few ingredients from your kitchen cupboard and voila! Even when you barely have time, you can prepare an instant ice-cream, sauce and pudding that will make the mouths water. 
Next time you go grocery shopping, add a few extra ready-made items – whether tins, packets or pastry –  to your shopping cart, and with this book by your side you will be ready to entertain anytime!
