66 Square Feet
A Delicious LifeBook - 2013
"South African-born home cook and gardener Marie Viljoen started her blog as a way to chronicle the seasons in New York City. What began as a simple method of staying in touch with her mother in South Africa quickly became a popular blog that has been lauded by Apartment Therapy and the Discovery Channel as one of the top 10 gardening blogs to read. In her first cookbook, Marie explores the intimate connection between New York City seasons and food. As she says in the introduction, "I have always looked at what is growing at my feet to know where and when I am in the world. And then I have tried to eat it." Part cooking, part New York, completely poetic and totally charming, 66 Square Feet is a year in the life of Marie's kitchen and terrace. Month by month, we watch and learn as she plants, grows, cooks and lives happily from her labors. The reader will also delight in her stories of growing up in South Africa, moving to the US, meeting her French photographer husband, and setting up a beautiful life in Brooklyn. Each chapter (month) is broken into three sections: New York City, Terrace, and Food. Her recipes are approachable but still interesting"-- Provided by publisher.
