NEW BOOK - JAN, A BREATH OF FRENCH AIR
JAN – A Breath of French Air
SHORTLIST BOOKSELLERS CHOICE AWARD 2017
COOKBOOK OF THE YEAR 2016, JENNY CRWYS-WILLIAMS
The first and foremost a memoir and celebration of Restaurant JAN, where we showcase South Africa’s tradition of hospitality that Jan-Hendrik learned at the tables of his mother and grandmothers. JAN is proof that dreams can be lived and how a love of what you do can transform humble ingredients into a masterpiece.
Each chapter captures the mood and inspiration of the food we serve at JAN, and the collection of over 90 recipes covers everything from locally baked breads, amuse bouche and mouth-watering main course meat- and fish dishes to what the chefs eat after a long night’s service in a hot kitchen. Readers can also look forward to over 200 glorious full colour photographs and some lovely vintage illustrations accompanying the inspiring text.
Jan-Hendrik’s first book, The French Affair, was received very well and went on to win the 2013 Gourmand World Cookbook Award in the Best French Cuisine Cookbook in the South African category. JAN – A Breath of French Air picks up where the previous book left off and serves as Jan-Hendrik’s personal call to adventure for every person who makes their way through its pages. Each recipe was lovingly created and it is with great pride that we set our little piece of France afloat in the world for adventurous foodies to experience for themselves.
