  2. Kanala, Smaak jy ‘n Koeksuster?It’s no wonder that a concept like ‘Cape Malay Cooking and other delights’ was borne. Conceptualized in 1994, South African bred Salwa Smith, considered the idea of a START-up. It was only when Facebook originated that Salwa Smith was able to actualize her idea’s. Her passion was given a platform and after having reached the maximum limitation of ‘friends’, she STARTED a page for those as passionate as she. Years later, what once was a concept, is now actualized in perpetual form. Cape Malay Cooking and other delights has taken to BOOK

    Dear Salwaa,

    As much as I’d love to attend your book launching, I am afraid that I’ll have to decline the invitation, because I’m resident in (and have been since 1971) Melbourne, Australia. I must also add that I have just been to Cape Town for a month from mid-October to Mid November last year (2014). I really meant to contact you during my stay, but my visit was so hectic (with parties almost every night) that I just did NOT get the chance.

    In a much more cordial vein, I would very much LOVE to buy a copy of your Cook Book. If you could let me know how much it would cost to send on to Australia, I could transfer the money directly into your bank account. I especially miss my AUTHENTIC Cape Malay Samoosas and Breyani. I have tried to make both from Faldiela Williams’ Cape Malay Cook Book, but have had no success thus far. I made them yes, but I just can’t get the right taste.

    I also want to thank you for faithfully sending me your newsletter. I also follow you on Facebook.

    Once again, many, many thanks.

    Kindest Regards

    Mike Prezens.
