In the spirit of multiculturalism we embrace the diversity of our people in several ways. One way - and a very personal and intrinsic way - is in the food that we eat. "Fusion" merges a wide range of ingredients, presentation and distinctive flavours in a celebration of many traditions meeting on a single plate. It draws its inspiration from the wonderfully rich blend of cuisines produced in the cross-cultural landscape of South Africa. In this collection of over 130 delectable recipes, Shanaaz Parker transforms the very best of old-time Indian and Malay classics into exciting new dishes to please the modern palate and to tempt all those who love good food. "Fusion" presents a sumptuous array of dishes that will surprise and delight the cook with a wealth of interesting tastes, textures and aromas. Variety may be the spice of life, but simplicity is certainly the way to get the best out of 'East Meets West'.
