Following the heart-warming response to her first cookbook, 'My Hungry Heart: Notes from a Namibian kitchen', the author's love of life, food, family and friends finds itself on a gentle journey of recollecting recipes that resonate through the years, showcasing the love and laughter and lore that wove them into her life. From the earliest memory of her grandmother's mouth-watering lamb pie and tongue-tantalizing sousboontjies to sugar-frosted fruit candies, these Namibian recipes delivered as love letters trace a life-long respect and gratitude for food's role and relevance to relationships cherished throughout vast and beautiful Namibia. As Antoinette says, 'stories from my Namibian kitchen are the stories of my heart's journey'. Each page invites you to spend quality time with your own heart, in your own kitchen, allowing you to take time to revel in recipes that spark your own memories and awaken your taste buds and senses to your own Life on a table.
