Marita does it again! Evocative images of life in France, together with drool-worthy recipes and food images – this is truly a book to spend many a happy hour with at the fireside and will sit happily next to Summer Food in Provence on your bookshelf.

Well-known author Marita van der Vyver, has lived in Provence for more than fifteen years, together with her French husband, Alain Claisse and their four children.  This book takes you behind the scenes in her home, with delightful images of Marita and Alain cooking. We particularly loved the image of her daughter wearing pyjamas, on the floor in front of the open fridge, digging into Nutella straight from the jar – warm, human, real – like the recipes in this book. Her love of the country and the cuisine shine through in this book, which takes the reader on a journey through the olive and grape harvests, to winter veggies and the traditional Christmas meal – which ends with no less than thirteen spectacular desserts.

Winter Food in Provence will have you dreaming of misty, family feasts in France, but the wonderful thing is that you can recreate the recipes right here without too much effort or expense.
