Jenny Morris welcomes you into the warm, fragrant kitchen of The Cook’s Playground, her culinary school based in Cape Town. Drawing on the treasured childhood memories that shaped her abiding love of food, Jenny has created a definitive collection of taste sensations. An inspired and adventurous cook, she transforms the simplest, freshest ingredients into tantalising feasts to share with family and friends on any occasion. Try Banana Pancakes topped with Bacon, Brie and Caramelised Pear for a special-occasion breakfast, or a sensual salad of Dukkah-tomato and Aubergine as a start to a long, lazy lunch.
For the more adventurous, Oysters Dressed with fresh Pomegranate Juice is a sure winner, while Sesame-seared Tuna with Wasabi Sour Cream Dip offers an explosion of flavour. There is nothing to beat Slow Lazy Man Lamb on a cold winter’s evening, while Pink Prawn and Watermelon is perfect for summer. Soups, pastas, side dishes and desserts in abundance – there is something to tempt you throughout the day. Sprinkled with personal anecdotes, and narrated with characteristic sparkle and quirky humour, Cooking with Jenny Morris captures the very essence of food in over 200 accessible, imaginative recipes.
