Description

Neil Roake’s love of good food has brought him happy friends and a skewer-full of awards, including Best Barbeque and Outdoor Cookbook in the World at the international Gourmand Awards for Life’s A Beach Cottage.

Now he’s put his money where his mouth is and opened Freedom Café at Concierge Boutique Bungalows in Durban. As Glynis Horning writes in the Forward, ‘Only a few of us have the energy and sheer bloody nerve to break loose and risk what we have to be fully and freely ourselves.’ Neil is one.

You can taste the Freedom in these vibrant pages of food from the Café – a celebration of his mantra, ‘local, fresh, direct.’ His recipes and the colourful tales behind them are sensationally illustrated with photographs by Tony Christie, and artwork from his Modern Museum design studio.

‘Sometimes I pretend to be normal. But it gets boring. So I go back to being me.’ Neil takes his philosophy from Ruhani Rabin, but his approach to food is entirely his own. Easy. Entertaining. Fun. The taste of Freedom.
