Have you ever sat through a movie that was so gripping that you left with tense muscles and a headache? Dark Video is the kind of book that I envision as that type of thriller. The author, Peter Church, is telling a story that has you gripped from the very first page and proceeds to develop into something a lot more intricate and dark.

This cooking book with a difference was my prize through entering a competition in the SAbona magazine. I was thrilled to receive it and resolved that I was going to test drive a few of the recipes. Even though the recipes are written for the outdoors I knew that with winter on our doorstep it would be several months before I would venture into the wild and decided to do the test driving in our kitchen and use my family as the tasting panel. This would test the recipe and my ability to read and do.

Australia Bush Cooking

I enjoy cooking and ‘more camping trips' with my family is one of my goals for this year, so I was really thrilled to page through Australian Bush Cooking by Cathy Savage, with pictures by Craig Lewis.

There are lots of yummy sounding recipes and some dishes that I wouldn't have contemplated cooking in the bush. The book certainly is inspiring.
