Food is never just food. It is a comfort, a salve, an act of remembrance, a celebration, a way of saying to yourself or to those you love: I made this for you.
Charlotte Duff, Nourish
"It wasn't so much the technique, or even the specific recipe that Grandfather Basson bequeathed to me, as it was the tradition of the meal, the pleasure of meticulous preparation and execution, the ceaseless joy in sharing a meal with loved ones, and the sarisfaction in hearing the scarpe of the serving spoon against the empty bottom of the pot."
Jaco Prinsloo, Passing on the Potjiekos
