Nie-fiksie / Non-fiction - Kookboeke / Food & Drink
Growing up in small-town South Africa, Sophia Lindop mostly felt like an outsider but she always told people, with great pride, that she was Lebanese. As a child, her only link to the mysterious country called Lebanon, the country she was told they came from, was through its food. After school and on weekends, it was in the kitchens of the women in her family that she found her belonging, and it was in those flavours that she found her identity.
A promise to her Dad in the dark hours of the night on which he left earth took her to the land of her forefathers.
She was going home. Going Home tells the stories behind the rich Lebanese food culture. Come and be seated at Sophia's Lebanese table and relish the meaning of life - togetherness, sharing, laughter, and above all, good food.
