    1. The River Cafe original is a wonderful book but you may find that you make dishes from this one more than the other because its recipes are shorter and tend to be simpler. Both books are on my kitchen shelves but this is the one I reach for more often. The section on bruschetta toppings, for example, is inspirational and there are some "wow" desserts. South African cooks be warned that not all ingredients are that readily available though.

    2. I've been using this book for dinner parties - constructing entire menus from it. The recipes are not necessarily quick to prepare or cook, but they are simple and involve very few ingredients. The range of flavours is wonderful.

    3. not good to read after eating dinner. you just want to go cook another one! and the desserts! esp. the cakes!!!! got this from the library, but may need to go buy my own copy. yum!
