Karoo Food by Gordon Wright book launch

Following on the success of Veld to Fork, Gordon Wright’s first book, Karoo Food is bigger, better and tastier than ever, with more recipes, stories and anecdotes about life and food in the Karoo.

Once again, Gordon takes you on a Slow Food journey, via your taste buds, to foodie nirvana. Tracing the origins of ingredients and the stories behind the dishes, this is a selection of recipes and inspirations from the important people in his life. It’s a mix of the old and the new and a tribute to all those lovely people and their marvellous food over the generations that have helped foster his love of cooking.

Karoo Food is a must-have for cooks, foodies and aspiring home chefs.

Author Gordon Wright

Gordon Wright is an author, chef and raconteur based in the Great Karoo. The youngest of eight

an ex-restaurateur, the founder of the Karoo Convivia and a member of the national executive of
Slow Food International in South Africa. Gordon is a passionate cook, charcutier, outdoorsman,

two sons, Jason and Max, and a massive family of siblings, friends and pets. And he just loves a fire
and to braai, of course.
