Lannice Snyman says, ‘What inspires me most about food is that eating means sharing, whether it’s a simple snack, a casual campfire repast or a banquet. And coming together in this way is one of the most powerful and intimate forms of communication that there is.’

Lannice is one of the most versatile and prolific contemporary South African food writers. She is an internationally published journalist and the author of 14 cookbooks. She has won numerous awards as a food writer and is a highly esteemed judge and a regular guest on food programmes on television and radio.

She heads up her own publishing company, along with her two daughters. Her new book, Posh Nosh – Fabulous Food for Family and Friends (Lannice Snyman Publishers) reunites the reader with the real pleasures of the kitchen and the joys of cooking for friends and family.

The recipes are accompanied by notes on matching wines, as well as plenty of instructions for preparing items in advance, tips and beautiful photographs. It will appeal to novices and seasoned cooks alike.

Here, Lannice has put together a sample of the recipes in the book to, in her words, ‘help you cook because you want to, not because you have to!’
