The day one sets foot in France you can take it from me, pure happiness begins ... Nancy Mitford A passion for food is a gift that I love to share ... with rolled up sleeves and my hands covered in flour, a rather messy glass of superb red on the side. Or picking sun-warmed blueberries on the way home from a French village market, a basket filled with asparagus, artichokes, blood-red tomatoes, lambs lettuce, fresh bread and Comte cheese over my arm ... Marlene van der Westhuizen Delectable is much more than a recipe book, it celebrates the sharing of a food and wine journey from Cape Town, South Africa, to medieval Charroux, France ... and all the exquisitely beautiful little lunch breaks in between. The book is as much about good living as much as it is about good food.
