HUNGER FOR FREEDOM (article first published : 2008-07-27)

Hunger for Freedom: The Story of Food in the Life of Nelson Mandela by Anna Trapido is to be released shortly.

“This book is an historical “food-print” whose passion and integrity offers a refreshing insight into the simple tastes of a great man,“ says his daughter Zindzi Mandela.

Food has provided the backdrop and occasionally the primary cause for momentous personal and political events in the life of Nelson Mandela. This innovative approach to history shows that a great man’s life can be measured out in mouthfuls, both bitter and sweet. With this book, the reader can cook and taste Nelson Mandela’s journey from the corn grinding stone of his boyhood through wedding cakes and curries to prison hunger strikes, presidential banquets and ultimately into a dotage marked by the sweetest of just desserts. Tales told in sandwiches, sugar and samoosas speak eloquently of intellectual awakenings, emotional longings and always the struggle for racial equality.
