Babel Cookbook 2nd Print

September 23rd, 2013

Babel Book Eng cover

Exactly a year ago we launched our first cookbook, Babel. From the overwhelming response to this cookbook, we have gone into a second print run in the English version with a more detailed section on Babylonstoren wine.


On the farm our goal is to produce simplicity. This is also what we aim to achieve in our cellar, ensuring every bottle of Babylonstoren wine stays as natural as possible and true to the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain.


“My wine making tries to capture the essence of Babylonstoren in a bottle. We love honesty, simplicity, diversity and timelessness” – Charl Coetzee, winemaker


“The Babel philosophy is to start with our bountiful, freshly picked garden produce and create an eating experience that pleases the taste buds and inspires the mind. We communicate through the dishes and the plates come alive with the surrounding beauty and senses from the Babylonstoren farm. With the Babel cookbook, we would like you to continue this journey with us, exploring the diverse range of varieties and taste combinations. The recipes are simple and easy to prepare.” – Maranda Engelbrecht


The Babel cookbook can be purchased from our farm shop  or online shop and is available in English, Afrikaans, German and Mandarin.


  1. I had a memorable lunch at Babylonstoren in August and purchased your amazing cookbook and am wondering if it is available to purchase in the States? I want to buy copies for friends. If not can you ship from SA?
    Many thanks
