67 South African chefs were honoured to contribute to The Great South African Cookbook and answer the question 'What is the food you make for the people you love'? This cookbook has been created to honour of Madiba's legacy in South Africa and the world.
According to Jules Mercer, co-editor, only one person could not make the shoot. She says she is very grateful that despite their busy schedules, these SA's chefs made time to contribute to the book.

Mercer says that the proceeds of the book will go the Nelson Mandela Foundation to develop and support community food and agricultural projects.
