Author Estelle Sacharowitz reveals that she thinks about food all the time. ‘And as I wonder what it’s all about, and why I do what I do, I realise that it’s all about us. It’s about you, it’s about me, it’s about people. It’s about our complexities, memories and sweetness. It’s about trying to capture time in a form that is familiar, comforting and definite … It’s about creativity and curiosity. It’s about needs, primal and necessary, and also emotional.’ And as a magician waving a wand, Estelle distils this into an array of dishes that feeds both body and soul in the most delightful and tempting manner. From humble but comforting soups, through nourishing bowls and elegant meals to impress, to bountiful platters, you won’t be able to resist. Simply submit and enjoy. And as Estelle says, ‘Make and eat something that causes you to stop and think, this is wonderful. Life is full of wonder.’


Estelle Sacharowitz:
Estelle Sacharowitz has immersed herself in the world of food for more than two decades. A self-taught cook, caterer and a co-author of Savour (published by Struik Lifestyle), her business, Love is in the Kitchen, coordinates bespoke events. As an observer of how we eat, what we love and how food is part of our propensity for joy, It’s All About the Food emerged from her experience of creating moments of togetherness. When she isn’t cooking for others, Johannesburg-based Estelle may be found wandering supermarkets, gourmet food stores and organic markets in search of interesting ingredients, or seeking out homeware to complement her styling. She loves to eat out -- anything she hasn’t cooked herself. Even if it’s toast!
