Hi Franck I have been a huge fan of yours since you were at La Colombe and I lived down the road in Tokai. I now live in Blouberg which sadly is rather far from your fantastic restaurant. My husband and I do however make numerous pilgrimages during the year to come and enjoy your supeeerb food! My old Constantia Uitsig cookbook is by far the most splattered one among my many cookbooks! My hubby and I fight over who is going to make what in it. I must say he makes a killer Prawn Tian! We sadly could not find a copy of Feast anywhere so it was with great excitement that in my weekly newsletter I saw that your new cookbook was coming out. Of course it went to the top of our Christmas wish list! So far everything we have made out of it has been awesome!!! The crux of this very long story is to tell you that our 6-year-old Eugenie Amelie (ok so we are Francophiles!) is a huge foodie. Your section on how to prepare garden snails was met with great glee and off she went to harvest my least favourite pest! I have attached the photos of the process which ensued. I have to confess that I was too squeamish to be involved in this heinous crime so my hubby helped her. They said they were fabulous! I will never know! Thank you so much for your passion and the wonderful way in which you do the best food in Cape Town without any pretension. Kind regards, Lisa, Genie and Henri P.S. Your cookbooks are referred to as the First and Second testament in our home!
