Food is as much a part of life as wine for most of the winemakers. Wendy Toerien has made it her business to spend time in the kitchens of each of the Cape Winemakers Guild's members and has produced this book full of happy memories and some truly fabulous food. The photos by Mike Carelse and food stylist Claire Gritten are alive and tempting. Each of the 45 Cape Winemakers Guild (CWG) members found in Cellarmasters in the Kitchen is featured in a profile piece that includes anecdotes, insights and experiences of a life with food and wine. The range of recipes offered in this intimate collection reflects individual personalities, personal tastes and distinctively different lifestyles. Sophistication stands alongside simplicity, classicism co-exists with the experimental, serious application is balanced by spontaneous fun. But theirs is a shared belief in preserving and capturing nature's bounty to enrich their daily lives in the pursuit of one of life's most simple pleasures: enjoying a glass of fine wine and a home-cooked meal with family and friends ... and, at odd times, equally contentedly on one's own.
