If ever there was anything worth savouring, it is this

Dear Max

I admit I don’t cook much, unless you count heating up Woolies meals, or whipping up eggs and toast? I have a few dozen cookbooks and when I do cook or bake, I love it.

The latest addition to my shelves is Savour (available at Exclusive Books), and I’m ecstatic to count the photographer and stylist of the book as my friends. The brilliant Vanessa Lewis and Taryn Jakobi made this book into a work of art, and I cannot wait to start cooking and baking from it. It’s simply droolworthy, and even has a chapter on kiddie food.

Max, I look forward to many meals together from Savour… and yes, I realise this will mean more than placing an item in the microwave 🙂

Here are some ravishing images from the book. Another thanks to Vanessa for providing them…

Holy cow I’m hungry!!!!

End-of-week observations…

Dear Max

So these are my thoughts from this week:

– Sometimes change is good (for example, I’ve just moved over to new running shoes – Reebok Zigtech, after being in another brand for years. So far, so great)
– That I love fetching you from school – there is little better than you galloping towards me with your arms wide open shouting “mama, mama, mama”
– That I’m not mad about dropping you at school. Lately you’ve been crying for dada and then me, and it makes my heart hurt
– That I have very talented friends and people willing to help me all the time. These include my friends Taryne Jakobi and Vanessa Lewis who worked on a brilliant cookbook that has just been launched called Savour, and Lexie Beswick, who literally jumps every time I need some design stuff
– That it’s not so smart to run a long race with minimal training
– That I really want a dog
– That it’s all or nothing with me when it comes to Woolies choc chip yoghurt
– That Saxon Hotel serves an awesome brunch, along with French champagne

And in the words of Miranda Priestley, that’s all!
