Set in McGregor in the Klein Karoo where she bakes bread in a wood-fired oven, this book reflects Hester’s intuitive feeling for the connections between the soul and food, particularly food that is prepared with care, according to traditional principles and methods. Hester se Brood is infused with a fine sense of humour, helpful hints and mouth-watering recipes. It’s a book as irresistible as the smell of bread fresh from the oven.
