Toortsie’s Banting Recipebook

At first Toortsie was a shy, Afrikaans speaking farmgirl, putting all her farmstyle recipes in a book, Toortsie se Bantingboerekos. This book was launched on 16 December 2015.

Since then, she became a world traveller. Toortsie’s tasty and easy recipes, with normal ingredients, for normal homes,  are used in houses across the globe!

Toortsie can be found in houses in South Africa, but she is also used in the Caymon Islands and in Canada. She travels in Europe and in Abu Dhabi. She is in Australia and New Zealand. In Africa she is in Kenia and Namibia. I’m sure she is in many more countries than I can think of! It’s SO exciting! 🙂  Yess!

So what happens next? Toortsie is speaking ENGLISH! 🙂


The English Toortsie, Toortsie’s Banting Bash, has just returned from the translaters! I am very excited, thankful, privileged to say that she will be available in English soon, hopefully in July 2016! And perhaps, who knows, she will also be travelling around the world soon!

The recipes are tasty and very easy to make, and every person in the family can eat it, Banters and non-Banters!

So in the meantime, ‘like’ Toortsie’s Banting Bash’s Facebook page  where you will see what is happening and where and when it will be available. Be part of the development and birth of the book! As soon as it is printed, you can order it and I will mail it to you. It will also be available at Bidorbuy where you can order it by credit card.

So, keep your eyes open, look out for Toortsie’s Banting Bash! 🙂
