Easy Al Fresco: The magic of simple outdoor feasts by Ilse van der Merwe
English | 2023 | Food & Cooking
When we eat al fresco – outside, beyond the confines of four walls – everyday meals become a heady combination of fresh air and flavours, of outdoor sounds and natural views. Whether that ‘outside’ is our own backyard, garden, patio or stoep, seaside caravan park, bushveld or the middle of nowhere surrounded by mountains, it makes little difference because we come away energised, nurtured and deeply satisfied.
And if preparing those meals doesn’t require conventional electricity during the dreaded loadshedding, well, that’s just the cherry on the top! In Easy Al Fresco , Ilse van der Merwe offers a simple and inspiring guide for fabulous, easy and scrumptious dishes that can all be prepared with a limited range of basic utensils, and a fire or kettle braai. As Ilse says, this should be the only book you pack for your next trail hike, fishing weekend, game reserve trip or seaside holiday. So what are you waiting for? Light the fire, grab a whisk and turn the pages of Easy Al Fresco – you’ll never look back.
