Win One of Three Copies of A Year at Silwood by Alicia and Carrianne Wilkinson

A Year at SilwoodThe NOMU blog has reviewed A Year at Silwood: Recipes from South Africa’s first cookery school by Alicia and Carrianne Wilkinson, giving it a massive stamp of approval.

“Along with the selection of recipes and stories, it truly feels like you get invited into the kitchen and into the shoes of one of the students at this prestigious cookery school. Far from a traditional cookbook, A Year at Silwood reads more like a yearbook and you cannot help feel a nostalgia about your own school days,” NOMU, one of South Africa’s most beloved food and lifestyle brands, writes.

NOMU is offering three lucky readers the opportunity to win copies of A Year at Silwood. All you have to do is answer a simple question:

If there was one dish you wanted to learn to cook, what would it be? Is it the perfect macaron, a roast leg of lamb or the ever daunting soufflé?

Read the review and enter the competition on the NOMU website:

‘A Year at Silwood’ is a book that not only takes you through some of the iconic recipes that have shaped the school’s history but allows you to become the student for a year. The book is a journey into the life of a student and what they experience over the year at this prestigious school. For anyone that doesn’t know, The Silwood School of Cookery is South Africa’s oldest and most iconic cookery school. For the past 50 years, its reputation and achievements have been unrivalled and many of the graduates can be found cooking in some of the most famous kitchens around the world.
