Just as Tamsin finished college in 1994 and was about to head out for a gap year to travel the world, her mom Lannice grabbed her rubber arm and convinced her to stay and help Lannice form her own publishing company. There was a growing demand for Lannice’s cookbooks and her publishers at the time were a little slow in reprinting many of her titles. Here began an incredible journey of a mother-daughter team who bought back their book titles from previous publishers and started self-publishing and reprinting their cookbooks. Twenty-three years later, 23 cookbooks written, produced and published together from their family Hout Bay home.

All cookbooks currently in print are available directly from Tamsin Snyman Publishers and will be couriered to your door within South Africa. Price includes book, packaging and courier costs.
