The Constantia Uitsig Cookbook
The broad winelands of Constantia Uitsig spread along the foothills of the Constantiaberg and reach right up to the forest belt, dating back to 1796. Bought by the McCays in 1988, the farm has been restored to its former glory and now boasts three restaurants (two of which are award-winners), a private cricket oval, 16 luxurious cottages, and a wine shop. Constantia Uitsig offers a glimpse of this historic wine farm, but the majority of the book is devoted to recipes from the exclusive Constantia Uitsig Restaurant which serves Mediterranean food with a South African twist; La Colombe, in which Provincial cuisine is served in a relaxed atmosphere, and the Spaanshemat river cafe. This book is a revealing look at current trends in South African cuisine, and is filled with mouth-watering images of the heavenly dishes served by this world class restaurant. Perfect for cooks, foodies, and anyone who cherishes great cooking.
