"This book explores Madiba's life and his hunger for freedom in a literal and metaphorical manner. What follows is not so much a cookbook as a gastro-political history with recipes. Food has provided the backdrop and occasionally the primary cause for momentous personal and political events in Madiba's life". Anna Trapido

Contains recipes from and photographs of Madiba's family and friends.
