I attended simple cooking legend, Phillippa Cheifitz’ “Lazy Days” book launch recently at Chez Gourmet. It was a delightful afternoon of drinking Groote Post Wines, cooking some recipes in Phillippa’s book and enjoying a sit down lunch admiring the fruits of our “labour”. Nick Pentz from Groote post and Chef Jenny from Chez Gourmet talked us through the wine pairings for the menu. It was a relaxed easy going affair which the book epitomizes. And it was most enjoyable chatting with Phillippa, she is so passionate about food and in particular the West Coast where she has a little holiday home in Paternoster. This book showcases local suppliers of fresh produce in the area which I just love!
