    Default Hey, Christine Dabney! Bet you don't have *this* cookbook...

    ... or do you?

    Mimi Jardim's Cooking the Portuguese Way - In South Africa.

    Found it when we went to a great fishmongers today that DH spotted on his
    'travels' and said I'd love. He was right.

    Ahem, we went there to buy some sole, yeah right... US$184.00 later, we
    staggered to the car with our booty... Mitigation, not only do they have a
    wonderful selection of fish and seafood - hey, they even had live oysters
    in a tank; this is an Amazing Thing in the Johannesburg area <Cathy waves
    to boli> but I discovered that they stock all sorts of other imported
    goodies too. Saw some Mae Ploy stuff there <Cathy waves to Steve>, and
    many other foodie delights e.g. pickled ginger (gari), a wonderful
    selection of imported soy sauces, olive oils etc. etc. <drool>

    Anyway, on the way out I spotted the above mentioned cookbook (can't wait
    to try the recipes) on a stand near the checkout... Also picked up a copy
    of "Fish in a Flash" which is a 'homemade' cookbook (think
    photocopies/ring binders) that is produced by the WIZO Johannesburg ladies
    - some good stuff in there too.

    Heh. I have no room left in my freezer (and DH has hidden his credit card
    from me), or I'd go back there again tomorrow

    mine....

    I found a variant of this yesterday. SO and I went to the Spanish Table
    and I found Cuisines of Portuguese Encounters, by Cherie Hamilton. This
    book contains recipes from Portugal and its former colonies, such as
    Brazil, Angola, and Cape Verde. I'd seen this cookbook several years
    ago at Spanish Table, but they didn't stock it again until just now.

    That sounds fascinating. How about Macao? IIRC, that is how egg tarts
    came to be part of dim sum.
