Market Food is a collaboration between mum, Dianne Stewart, and her two daughters, Lissa Stewart and Jessica Cairns, and the beautifully collated book features recipes, photographs and stories from market food vendors all over South Africa!
All photos in the book were taken by Lissa, who I connected with online recently after she bought some You Biscuit! Colouring Posters to give as favours to some of the younger guests at her upcoming wedding (how cool is that?!)
Food served during the event was recreated from recipes in the book by Nicolson’s chef, Jonty, while his lovely wife Tanya held the fort outside of the kitchen, making sure all guests were properly looked after.
Between courses, we heard more about the book and from one of the featured vendors themselves, local company Kish Mish who make all sorts of Persian-inspired delights!
Such a great evening with like-minded people – always feel inspired afterwards – and if the food we tasted was anything to go by, you probably need this recipe book in your life! (Available at select Exclusive Book stores)
