Description

Bitter+sweet tells the story of Mietha Klaaste, who grew up on the farm Keurkloof near Robertson, as retold by Niël Stemmet. The story starts with Mietha’s childhood. Her mother, Sarah, works for Oumies in their home and her father for Oubaas on the farm. Not too long after Jacobus, the eldest son of Oumies and Oubaas, gets married to his sweetheart Marie, a baby boy called Daniel is born. Mietha is taken out of school to look after Daniel – and with that a longlasting relationship is established.

The life which followed – with its sweet and its bitter – is recalled colourfully, interspersed with rhymes, songs, poetry and recipes from days gone by. This book gives us a glimpse of life in the past, but is filled with hope for the future.

With its more than 60 recipes ranging from chicken pie, liver patties, biltong and vetkoek to milk tart and sago pudding, this is a book which you will not only read and reread, but which will also inspire you and find its way into your kitchen.
