Share in our legacy with our Beautiful Cookbook

Posted on ()

After 9 Iconic Years, we decided to put it down on paper

The Manna Cookbook was a Passion Project that has been inspired by the feedback on some of our most iconic dishes, so you can enjoy them at home

Manna Cookbook

The Manna Cookbook was the brainchild of Agnés, and a homage to Chef Johnny and the legacy he has helped start at Manna Epicure. 

The Cookbook is a collection of some of the most iconic recipes from every facet of the menu, from Sauces, to the extraordinary baked goods Manna became known for.

In The Manna Cookbook

We start the book with our Famous Bakery Section. Manna was long known for their exceptional bakery that featured some amazing breads. For awhile we stopped, but since we are at the new space, we started baking our favourites again. 

One of the most popular recipes you’ll find in this section is undoubtably our Famous Coconut Bread, which alone makes this book worth the Purchase price.

Next, we have the Afternoon Tea Section and all the necessary baked goodies that usualy goes with that. For more information on our Afternoon Tea Offering, CLICK HERE.

The Menu

After those, we get to our Menu along with all the Classic Dishes from us that inspired the creation of the Manna Cookbook.

Lunch MenuWe start off at the beginning, with a collection of our Starters and Salads, in true South African and French Fusion style. We continue the culinary journey with Classics like our Baked Camambert , Skaapstertjies, Escargot Persillade, our Caesar Salad, along with our famous steak tartare that gets prepared tableside – all that still features on our Menu.

Moving on to the Iconic Manna Dishes, we see the recipes for our famous, classic Beef Bourginon, along with dishes like our Moules Marinière, Sticky Pork Spare Ribs, along with our Phenomenal Chateaubriand.

Manna CookbookNo Menu is complete without all the Sides and Sauces that elegantly rounds off every dish. From a Simple Beurre Blanc,  to the complex and velvety Red Wine Jus, all of our most popular sauces and dressings are available in the Manna Cookbook.

But it’s not just the Sauces, but also the Sides that compliments every dish on our Menu. Our Legendary Potato Gratin and our Onion Rings that looks like Doughnuts also features here, even though we weren’t sure about giving away our secrets to these…

And last, but definitely not least, the dessert section featuring South African Classics like a Peppermint Tart and our famous Malva Pudding. 

It also includes cakes with the recipe of our Dark and Velvety Chocolate Nemesis being one of the best reasons to get the Manna Cookbook.

In Conclusion

Full of stunningly shot food pictures and incredible recipes, this cookbook is an absolute steal for only R385, available in-store at Manna. We only had a limited number printed and it will probably not be repeated again, and after quite a few suffered some water damage, we are running quite low on stock, so get yours before it is too late.

Spoil that special person in your life by giving them a book created with love and care, filled with dishes that invoke long-lasting special memories!

We’ll leave you with some of the incredible photography featured in the Manna Cookbook.
