Coming Soon: Zuretha Roos's New Memoir – with Over 70 Recipes!

Sea Spray and Cherry PeppersHere’s a book on the Oshun horizon that’s sure to please foodies and bring smiles to the lips of many who’ve shifted gears – UP – after retirement!

Following on the success of The Saffron Pear Tree, well-known author Zuretha Roos tells more warm tales in this memoir of her retirement. When her workaholic husband Daniel decides to pack up their busy city life and move to the coast, Zuretha is thrilled.

She imagines endless lazy days spent conjuring up delightful meals to be companiably enjoyed, as the diners gaze out across the peaceful ocean. But when the couple unexpectedly inherit a small farm outside Cape St Francis, Daniel is inspired by the prospect of becoming a cattle-farmer … and Zuretha finds her blissful retirement dreams rudely interrupted by crack-of-dawn calls from neighbours, recalcitrant cattle, disappearing ponds, a curious patch of peppers and marauding wildlife.

At the beach house where they live, house guests are difficult to cope with, and layabouts find her husband is a human ATM. This book of the Roos’s misadventures on their little farm is completed with over 70 recipes tried and tested by the renowned food editor herself.

About the Author

Zuretha Roos is the author of several best selling works of Afrikaans fiction, including Die Verdwyning van Mina Afrika and Jesebel. The Saffron Pear Tree was her first English publication and its success prompted her to write Sea Spray and Cherry Peppers.

While living in Johannesburg with her husband and children, Zuretha worked as a food editor and journalist for Darling magazine and other publications. She and her husband now enjoy a very active retirement in Cape St Francis. She maintains her interest in food, keeps chickens and grows organic vegetables. Sea Spray and Cherry Peppers is her eighth book.
