Shiny Happy People - The Cookbook
I've never encountered a cookbook quite like this one. Imagine a compilation of your friends' best recipes combined with photographs of their houses, bound together in a beautiful book about personal taste and style. The book is called "Shiny Happy People" and it was written, photographed and designed by South African foodie Neil Roake, writer of the award-winning "Life's a Beach Cottage" series and the "On the Rocks" cocktail book. The book is a pleasure to read since it takes you into the houses of Roake's friends while simultaneously offering up their best recipes, rendering a full portrait of these strange and wonderful people, their homes, their families and their style. Neil's eye for detail captures the essence of each home we visit and each recipe we try. Highly recommended!
