Frontman of MiCasa and celebrity chef, J’Something has launched his very own cookbook. The book will feature over 70 delicious recipes and contain a playlist for each chapter.
When I cook I dance … So, I want people to do the same thing. Each chapter has one of my favourite DJs who has curated a playlist that ties into that chapter.
J’Something worked with Quivertree Publications to produce his very exciting and highly anticipated book ‘Something’s Cooking’ – a cookbook for home cooks by a home cook with a side aspiration for more serious foodies.
From just one ‘accidental’ foodie post on Instagram to his own cooking shows broadcast across the continent and now author of his very first cookbook, J’Something is living proof that dreams do come true when one is truly passionate. His food philosophy is simple: it all begins with love.
Something’s Cooking is packed with delicious recipes, ranging from everyday family dishes to treats J’Something cannot live without.
In this book on his food journey J introduces you to the rest of his family and the food he makes when he spends time with each of them.
There’s a strong relationship between music and food, and a fun and unique aspect of this volume is J’Something’s playlists for each chapter curated by his favourite SA DJs, linked through QR codes to keep you in the groove and entertained while you cook.
Each chapter has its own playlist, whether it is ‘Portugal Olé’ or ‘Jozi’. J’Something has coined the term ‘Afrogese’ when describing his cooking, ultimately inspired by his Portuguese heritage and his love of South Africa.
With over 70 recipes, photographed and designed in Quivertree’s usual striking and inimitable style, Something’s Cooking: J’Something is available now at good bookstores nationwide and on www.jsomething.com. Recommended retail price: R330.
