Win a copy of Simple & Delicious

simple and delicious cookbook

Alida Ryder or 'Simply Delicious' as she is known around the office is an inspiration for us all.

She started her blog Simply Delicious here on the food24 blog platform 3 years ago and has simply flourished.

Her hard work, dedication and thirst for knowledge combined with a raw and unique talent, has made her into the accomplished cook that she is today. We're proud to feature her first cookbook Simple & Delicious.

It is an accessible book that one could use daily with down-to-earth recipes for family and friends.

Here is a taste-peek into the book:

Bollywood lamb chops - an fragrant and interesting way with your chops.

The ultimate steak sandwich - simply... delicious!

A personal note from Ally:

'When I first started my blog on Food24 I had no idea I would be sitting here almost 3 years later. A published author, food writer, stylist, photographer and award winning blogger.

I have to sometimes pinch myself to see if I'm not dreaming. Through the guidance of the incredible editors at Food24 I grew my blog and realised that what I thought was only a passion, was more like a calling.

I worked at bettering my writing style, photography and styling (and still do). I eventually moved over to my own blog space and a whole new world opened in front of me.

If I look back at my first posts I am both horrified and ecstatic because there is so much proof of how far I've come. I will always be incredibly grateful to my Food24 family, especially Caro. It all started here and knowing what I know now, the sky, truly is the limit!'

Published by Penguin Books RRP R190. Available at all good book stores.

We are giving away 1 English and 1 Afrikaans copy (Heerlik & Maklik Hartskos).
