Book review: COOKING FOR CROWDS By Callie Maritz & Mari-Louis Guy

Whether you cook for a few of your family and friends, host a party or wedding or prepare dishes for a funeral, this book is a must-have all-year-round.

It is packed with recipes that covers breakfast, brunch or light lunch and occasions ranging from a children’s camp to a family celebration.

Learn how to make an old South African favourite like Chakalaka or a new exotic dish like a Russian salad that includes beetroot, a festive fennel salad or Lychee sangria. You can also find out what goes into putting together a fiery Bahamian fire engine.

The authors have called on the expertise of caterers, chefs, food bloggers and friends and even readers to put together these easy-to-follow recipes for novices and seasoned hands. They have also included tips and ideas – ranging from planning your menu, making a list, preparing ahead, getting help and even a note on math to cook for a crowd. This is a keepsake in the kitchen and would also make a welcome gift for family and friends.
