Description: Cooked in the Karoo

If you're reading Cooked in the Karoo, it probably means you're already interested in or perhaps love the Karoo: that you don't just think of it as a place you have to avoid at all costs as you speed through it on the Nl. This is the story of all the things you wouldn't expect to find in this vast semi-desert. A window into or a taster of another side of the Karoo, one that is unconventional, extraordinary and filled with rare characters, big wide-open spaces, extreme heat, dust and endless roads. It's a story about the pulse of the Karoo, its people and the stuff that makes them tick. This is a place where I found that hospitality is a way of life, and where stories and long-forgotten dishes come to life in kitchens of yesteryear - a place most people consider hell. But in the words of a Karoo farmer I met on a dusty road one day: 'The Karoo is a place God comes to think.' And in my own words? This is a place I came to, to find myself. I hope that this journey through the Karoo will inspire you to stop, kick up dust, be a little unconventional and discover true Karoo hospitality for yourself.
