Boeka Treats
Edition No.9 (2008)
Compilation Series Edition No. 4 : Desserts
boeka treats1
Boeka Treats was first published in 1999 and featured recipes of many savouries, cakes and desserts traditionally made by the Cape Muslim (Malay) community during the month of Ramadaan. “Boeka” means ‘breaking the fast’, hence the title. This publication proved so popular, with all 15,000 copies sold out within 2 weeks, it was decided to publish new recipes every year. The 2nd edition featured several new recipes as well as special dishes for Eid. The 3rd edition focused on biscuits, cakes and easy foods, whereas the 4th edition featured traditional foods and savouries. The 5th edition, published in 2004 included new recipes in all the categories as well as a few recipes for kids to make.

There is great demand for previous copies of the Boeka Treats, especially the first 3 editions that are out of print. Also, many who bought the first editions have used their copies excessively resulting in the books looking rather worn. The need arose for a compilation series featuring all the recipes published in the first five editions, as well as the inclusion of several new recipes in each of 4 categories, viz. Soups & Savouries, Breads, Cakes & Biscuits, Foods and Desserts. The first in this compilation series, Soups & Savouries, was published in 2005, and the second, Breads, Biscuits, Cakes and Pastries published last year. This year the third in this for part series, viz. Foods, will be published. A total of over 70 previously published recipes as well as another 20 brand new food recipes will be included in the following categories : Traditional, Quick and Easy, curries, bredies, seafood, offal, international (Egyptian, Malaysian, etc.), pastas, and exotic dishes.
