Recipes from a Mother’s Heart
René Walker is an Afrikaner child of the Eastern Cape, born, raised and educated in Port Elizabeth. Her earliest memories are of her mother cooking boerekos, and even then, she had a discerning palate, which her mother called “fiemies”, which would stand her in good stead in later life.
After a lifetime dedicated to cooking and catering, René has produced a colourful, family-orientated little recipe book, filled with a diverse collection of great recipes which both reflect her love for cooking and her joy in providing good food for her family, friends and clients.
The recipes are an eclectic fusion of good, solid traditional fare and modern dietary and health needs and influences. Her love for family and the satisfaction she gains from cooking for them is reflected in little comments throughout the book, such as “Steven’s best”, and “David’s favourite”. There are also personal little tips and hints throughout the book, which gives it an intimate, family feel.
This special book will, in René’s words, “inspire you and enable you to rejoice with us on our loving journey through the creation of fine food”.
