Munch­ing Along Mile 8

SLOW Magazine - - Must Get -

One of South Africa’s favourite celebrity chefs, David Higgs, is set to re­lease his first ever cook­book in Oc­to­ber this year, and we are al­ready drool­ing. The book, Mile 8, is more than just a cook­book for Higgs. Orig­i­nat­ing from the Swakop­mund Post Of­fice and run­ning north for 108 miles, Namibia’s coast is dot­ted with mile mark­ers – weath­ered painted stones whose num­bers have grown rich with mean­ing and leg­end and are now in­sep­a­ra­ble from the places they sig­nify. Higgs, co-owner of Mar­ble restau­rant, cel­e­brated chef and co-pre­sen­ter of My Kitchen Rules, grew up along this coast­line. With over 90 dishes and 150 recipes in­flu­enced by the jour­ney of Higgs’ ca­reer, Mile 8 is a culi­nary ad­ven­ture bring­ing to­gether the unique and in­ter­est­ing flavours of South­ern Africa. For pre-or­ders and more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Stef Garone at stef@mar­ble.restau­rant.
