About Us

Lannice Snyman Publishers is run by Lannice's daughter Tamsin.

Tamsin Snyman

Tamsin Snyman: Marketing & PR ManagerTamsin trained in Promotions, Marketing and Business Communication before joining Lannice’s publishing company in 1994. She took a two-year break working for CCAfrica (Conservation Corporation Africa). Based at Ngala Private Game Reserve in the Northern Province, she held the positions of Head Chef and Guest Relations Manager.

On her return to Cape Town, she was appointed Special Projects Manager of Lannice Snyman Publishers, handling specific publishing contracts and most of styling required for the company. In addition she formed her own business, Bay Gourmet, specialising in high-end catering and event creation for exclusive clients.

Tamsin is CEO of the SA Barbecue Association, organisers of the third Annual World Barbecue Championships held in Cape Town in 2001 and the South African Barbecue Championships in 2002 and 2003. In 2000 she was a member of the South African team that competed in the World Barbecue Championships in Tennessee.

Tamsin is a culinary consultant and revamps and designs restaurant menu’s, trains their chefs and implements operating systems. She is particularly dedicated to South African cuisine and ensures that it receives the recognition it deserves.

Lannice Snyman passed away in May 2010 and has left a legacy that will be continued by Tamsin as she steps into her mother’s shoes and moves forward with the same commitment and passion that Lannice had to the food industry.

Courtenay Snyman

Courtenay Snyman: Distribution ManagerAfter leaving school, Courtenay followed her heart to Christopher Robin where she trained in child care and first aid. She went on to assist in aftercare at St Cyprian’s School in Cape Town before joining Lannice Snyman Publishers. Courtenay is the mastermind behind the distribution aspect of our publishing company and maintains key relationships with every book buyer of every book shop in South Africa. She keeps a close eye on our international agents and makes sure that our cookbooks reach far flung corners of our planet and that South African cuisine is embraced and loved by all. Besides fishing and being a devoted aunt to Trinity, Courtenay keeps her finger on the pulse of all orders, invoicing and accounts control for Lannice Snyman Publishers.

Both Lannice and Michael Snyman passed away during 2010.

27 October 1947 - 9 May 2010

Culinary guru, LANNICE SNYMAN, one of South Africa's most experienced and well- respected food personalities. She's an award-winning author and publisher, consultant, stylist, freelance journalist, restaurant critic and internationally-accredited barbecue judge.

She has Honorary Grand Diplomas from Silwood Kitchen Cordon Bleus School and the Culinary Art Institute of Africa (CAIA). In 1997 she received the coveted Galliova Award for the Best Foodwriter in the country for her work as Cookery Editor of the Sunday Times, a position she held for ten years.

Lannice has written thirteen cookery books (number fourteen is underway!), and has contributed to many more. Her first book with co-author Anne Klarie, FREE FROM THE SEA was launched in 1979 (by Don Nelson Publishers), and is still selling well after going into twelve reprints and being rewritten and re-photographed in 1994. BRAAI IN STYLE, launched in 1983, has been reprinted eight times, and was revamped in 1993. Both these titles have sold well in excess of 100 000 copies, making them amongst the most successful cookbooks in the country.

Self-publishing was a natural next step to writing books, and Lannice launched her own company in 1995 in partnership with photographer Andrzej Sawa. S&S PUBLISHERS produced three books, REFLECTIONS OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN TABLE (1995), RAINBOW CUISINE (1998) and GOURMET HIDEAWAYS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA (2000). All three were selected as being amongst the best books in the country in Exclusive Books' Publishers Choice listings.

In 1999 ONE HUNDRED WINES (an insiders' guide to South African wines) by Allan Mullins and Dave Swingler hit the shelves.

In 2001 Lannice renamed her company LANNICE SNYMAN PUBLISHERS to expand her publishing portfolio, producing mainstream cookbooks as well as venturing into Contract Publishing for a broader commercial market including hotels and restaurants (REFLECTIONS OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN TABLE and GOURMET HIDEAWAYS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA both feature top African destinations).

In 2001 the company published HOME BAKES and TUIS GEBAK by author Carolie de Koster, sponsored by Tiger Milling. Due to intense interest in the book, and the fact that it was effectively geared to its target market, 33 000 copies were printed, most of which were advance orders. In 2003 COOKING WITH CANNED PILCHARDS was produced for Oceana Brands as well as for sale through bookshops. 2004 will see the launch of three new titles, FRESH & HEALTHY – Step-by-Step to Life by Annette Kesler, KITCHEN COWBOYS by Peter Goffee-Wood and a new book by Lannice herself.

Michael Snyman

28 May 1945 - 27 September 2010

While running his own business, SNYMAN CONSTRUCTION & KITCHENS, husband Michael saw to the customs side of the books, as consignments arrive from printers in Singapore.

Michael Snyman, a third generation builder, learnt his profession from his father and grandfather, spending school holidays on building sites and absorbing first hand the intricacies of the trade he grew to love.

He formed his own company in 1968, soon after graduating from building college. Over the years operations have been streamlined to specialize in areas where a small company can be best appreciated – single dwelling houses, alterations and additions and, of course, designing and renovating bathrooms and kitchens, which are an important part of the business.

Backed by a joinery factory for the production of custom built cupboards for the whole house, kitchen revamps include painting, plumbing, tiling – all the bits and pieces that give customers a "one stop" service. A new kitchen can take just one working week, including the removal of existing units, installation of new ones and doing the electrical work, plumbing, tiling and painting.

A carpenter by trade, Michael is known for his hand-crafted dining room tables and kitchen blocks, an adaptation of the old-fashioned butchers’ blocks which he custom builds to suit individual requirements. These units may be ordered, for delivery anywhere in the country.

The company’s strength lies in personal service and ultra competitive pricing. Michael does most of the work himself with a back-up of long-serving artisans and sub-contractors. He's the one who assesses the work and gives the quotation, and he’s on site throughout the job to ensure quality control and to see that the work is done properly and quickly.

Snyman Construction & Kitchens does no advertising; there’s more than enough work generated by word of mouth. The company operates from custom-built offices in Hout Bay where a demonstration kitchen and sample units may be viewed. Satisfied customers are only too happy to show off their new kitchens to prospective customers. Interesting features and finishes and the workmanship may be viewed and discussed in detail.
