excerpts from The Encyclopedia of World Cookery
These three recipes are from the "South Africa" chapter in Elizabeth Campbell's The Encyclopedia of World Cookery (London: Spring Books, 1958). Most of Campbell's South African recipes are from that country's European population and are mostly derived from European (especially Dutch) cuisine with some French and Asian influences. The first two of these recipes are more African-influenced. The third is included for fun.
