Well-known chef and author of the successful Abundance, Delectable and Sumptuous, Marlene van der Westhuizen has created something very special with her newest cookbook. She divides her time between Cape Town and a medieval country village in France called Charroux, where she runs very popular cooking classes. This book is a glimpse into the inner workings of her fiftieth cooking class. Marlene is all about the joy of sensuous, wholesome food: sourcing it; cooking it; and sharing it. She shares the understated glamour of French country cooking, eating and living; and teaches us how to navigate food markets, and cook and present glorious meals.
