“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 …”

This quote encapsulates the essence of Delectable, 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. Delectable is more than just a cookery books … it’s about good living as much as it is about good food. – Marlene
