Journey through Africa with chef and founder of The Africa Café, Portia Mbau.
In 1992 Portia started the first African restaurant in South Africa, serving food inspired by her travels across the continent. The Africa Cookbook is a compilation of her tried-and-tested recipes, designed to bring the flavours and techniques of Africa into your home kitchen. With Portia’s added flair, the dishes go beyond tradition into innovation.
Part of her signature is the use of healthy and organic ingredients that still evoke the authentic, much-loved flavours of Africa.
