66 Square Feet: A Delicious Life, One Woman, One Terrace, 92 Recipes
Title: 66 Square Feet: A Delicious Life, One Woman, One Terrace, 92 Recipes
Author: Marie Viljoen
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.
The book draws the reader into Viljoen’s beautiful world of unfolding city seasons as she forages through New York City and harvests from her garden to create elegant and inspiring meals that encourage the reader to pause and savor life. Each chapter is a month, and ends in the kitchen, with a menu inspired by her terrace and roof gardens, farmer’s markets, and the occasional weed. Set against a backdrop of growing up in South Africa and moving to the United States, meeting her French husband, and finding a culinary and emotional home in Brooklyn, Viljoen’s book is a love letter to living seasonally in the most famous city on the planet.
