Welcome to Penstock Publishing
Penstock Publishing started out in 2005 as an imprint of Hemel & See Boeke. Today we are firmly established amongst South Africa's smaller publishing houses.
Penstock Publishing specialise in non-fiction, including biographies, cookery and educational books, but occasionally a novel lands on our desk that we cannot resist.
HOT OFF THE PRESS
Title: A FEAST FROM NATURE – Food Culture of the First Humans on Planet Earth
Author: Renata Coetzee
Publisher: Penstock Publishing
Format: 255 x 360 mm hard cover
In A Feast from Nature, well-known author Renata Coetzee explores the food culture of early humans, based on her knowledge as a nutritionist. She brings together aspects of archaeology, paleontology, botany, genetics, history, culture and much more, to illustrate how the indigenous Khoi-Khoi transformed natural edible products and developed their own cuisine. While scientifically sound, her latest publication is beautifully illustrated, and far more than a coffee table book. It will also be the first book in South Africa to be printed on environmentally friendly "stone paper”.*
* Stone paper does not use trees, water, chlorine, acids, or petroleum in its creation. It is made from construction waste and/or stone, without using water or cellulose.
