The author

Peet du Toit obtained a doctoral degree in Drama from the University of Pretoria and authored more than twenty books. At his retirement he was head of the Afrikaans and African languages Deparment of the Pretoria Teachers Training College. In his spare time he devotes his attention to his Africana furniture, memorabilia of concentration camps of the Anglo Boer War and stamp collection. The traditions and ways of living of our forbears interest him greatly. It is against this background that his book Skottel en Spens (Dish and Pantry), must be read.
