A Collection of Recipes of Indigenous Foods prepared by Generations of Women. African produce and cooking traditions have never featured in the mainstream of food culture. At most influences are indicated in eating habits which have always been held to be ‘Western’. Now things are about to change. Putting South African food firmly on the map and table is but an aspect. What weighs particularly heavily on the positive side is the empowerment component – which will promote small artisanal farming and cultivation and help with poverty elevation. As many products are, in reality, growing indigenously, the project has a very positive environmental-biodiversity spin-off. In this manner it is a food proposition fully in line with the philosophy of the international Slow Food movement: preserving biodiversity and promoting indigenous culinary traditions – including local threatened produce – natural food products, fresh and good ingredients, in contrast to today’s easy convenience food.
