Great Grub from the Meerkat Café is an interactive, family cookbook paired with hilarious and wildly educational facts about the creatures of southern Africa’s Kalahari Desert. The book’s simple recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desserts with names like Dung Beetle Pancakes and Spaghetti with Grasshopper Heads have just enough “yuck factor” to greatly appeal to children, while parents will also be pleased that the recipes provide savory substitutions. Sliced Brown ’N Serve sausages can be substituted for sliced dung beetles. Frozen peas can be used instead of grasshopper heads. Families will have loads of fun preparing a “smorgas-bug” in their own kitchen burrow. The grub’s on! In addition to feeding the stomach, feed the soul! Each recipe has a Food For Thought sidebar, which provides families with surprising, funny, and sometimes yucky information about the animals, birds, and insects of southern Africa’s Kalahari Desert. The easy-to-understand recipes, with measurements in both standard and metric, were tested by a professional chef. A wise traditional African proverb reflects the theme of each recipe. This book promises to “worm” its way into the heart of every family member. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind, fun cookbook to give as a gift or to get your future chef cooking in the kitchen with you . . . this is it!
