“I love this thoughtful researched and beautifully presented collection of people, produce, stories and recipes showcasing everything iconic and authentic about the Fleurieu region. Every region needs a champion and Rojina has certainly captured this for our beautiful Fleurieu.”

Full of superb recipes, the book reflects her passion for the people who put world-class food on our plate, coffee in our cup and wine in our glass.”
