Mile 8 by David Higgs: A book about cooking

David Higgs

South Africa’s favourite celebrity Chef, and internationally acclaimed, David Higgs is set to release his first ever cookbook: Mile 8.

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.

David, co-owner of Marble restaurant, celebrated chef and co-presenter of My Kitchen Rules, grew up along this coastline. For him, Mile 8 is a special marker as it is where he caught his first fish and his food journey began. This is his story, beginning in the small, coastal town of Walvis Bay, through the cowboy kitchens of Cape Town in the 90’s, to the heart of South Africa’s lush winelands, and culminating at Marble, a culinary tour de force in the heart of Johannesburg.

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. Impala Tartare, Snoek & Apricot, Amadumbe & Chakalaka, and his version of the classic Malva Pudding are just some of the delights to be found in this wonderfully illustrated book.

Mile 8 will be available from leading national book retailers from October 2018 and will be priced at approximately R550. Pre-orders of a minimum of 10 copies can be made via the Marble website – www.marble.restaurant – for the special price of R450.
