The sequel to the international award-winning East Coast Tables highlights food and ingredients from KwaZulu-Natal's inland region - travelling through the Midlands right up to the Drakensberg. This is not just any recipe book; the farm-to-plate documentary style book features contributions by local cooks and chefs, personal interviews and stunning location photography.

The station's General Manager Trish Taylor says she is proud of the book, "Our first foray into publishing a food book in 2010 was an astonishing success. East Coast Radio is now proud to bring you a second edition which is a culinary showcase of the people and produce of KZN's Midlands and mountains. East Coast Tables: Inland Edition is an authentic portrayal of local food, life and culture. It is a true celebration, Funsunzi-style!"

Contributions from the best

Author Erica Platter says, "Photographer Clinton Friedman and I are both thrilled to complete our praise song to the great food of the province with this second book. If you enjoyed our first book you will love this one! Inland KZN is a greedy (but discerning) eater's delight. Beautiful beef, luscious butter and cheese, fat chickens, lean pigs, crispy ducks, much more. Wickedly good."

The book doesn't just feature home-grown produce, but home-grown food heroes. Recipe contributors include foodies like South Africa's first Master Chef Winner Deena Naidoo, the founder of the country's first black-owned chef school Futhi Ngomane and Jackie Cameron, one of the country's top 10 chefs. Other big name contributors are Springbok rugby player Pat Lambie, who was schooled in the Midlands and renowned author John van de Ruit.

East Coast Tables: The Inland Edition is available at book stores at the cost of R295.
