The West Coast is one of the few places left in the Western Cape that is devoid of pretension, says Georgia East, who pays tribute to the region in her new cookbook, 'West Coast Wander'.

Cue three different blogs, three cameras and a lot of experimentation later and East After Noon has grown to be a sort of ongoing portfolio for my work.

[Because it offers] the same semi-arid conditions and sunny climate as most of the Mediterranean, I linked places like Elands Bay with the Aegean and incorporated flavours from Greece and surrounds into traditional West Coast recipes. My aim was to simplify dishes and make them more appealing to modern appetites.

To me, the West Coast provides unfiltered inspiration. I knew I had to write the book on location – so when dreaded writer’s block reared its head, I would have the option to simply leave my desk and find motivation from the landscape.
