Excerpts from the book

Some meals were disasters but with every new recipe I tried, my enjoyment of the process increased. Part of the enjoyment came in the music I would play as a constant companion in the kitchen, the amazing realisations and lessons that would sometimes drop into my spirit as I was in some cooking zone, and the fact that I had a partner who was always grateful that I had cooked.

This relationship with fruit and fruit trees was cultivated through my grannyโ€™s garden. My granny didnโ€™t have a job, but itโ€™s a fact that she worked harder than any woman I know. A widow at 38 in 1960โ€™s apartheid South Africa with no income and 7 kids, the oldest of whom was 14; sitting here in my flat, free as one can be, with savings for a rainy day, a job, and only first world worries, it hits me that Iโ€™m now the same age she was when she had to take charge of her household.

I was, however, torn between my love for the environment which society suggested should be reflected in eating veggies over meat, and my body; which thrived off lots of meat consumption. I didnโ€™t believe that the optimal diet for my human health meant destroying the planet.
