If you loved Summer Food in Provence, you'll adore Marita's
latest food book

Marita and Alain’s big family love to eat, and eat well. They prefer to cook according to the seasons, to save time, money and effort – and to ensure the freshest flavours. In winter they have to be that bit more innovative in their shopping and cooking because of the limited variety available, but they have a number of tricks and good ideas to liven up their meals in all sorts of innovative ways.
In Winter Food in Provence Marita writes about the olive harvest and the grape harvest, about mussels and oysters and other shellfish, about winter vegetables like potatoes and cabbage. Christmas time is chocolate time, and the traditional Provençal Christmas meal is brought to a delicious conclusion with no fewer than thirteen desserts. Kings tarts are baked with a lucky charm tucked away in the delicious almond filling, and February is the month devoted to making and consuming pancakes. And then there are preserved anchovies and dried cod, dried sausages and smoked hams, nuts and pâtés and pulses, festive tables and comforting family food for the darkest days of the year.
She’s made sure that the recipes can be attempted outside France without too much effort or expense. This is hearty, honest food that feeds more than just the body, it’s food that warms the soul.
Ook beskikbaar in Afrikaans as Winterkos in Provence



A humorous collection of stories about moving the way the French do it. It is a book about place, what binds the heart to a home, about breaking ties to grow new ones and about what we take with us. Marita finds that life is a fountain, always bubbling up with new surprises, wherever we go in the world.
