Mon & Mone’s Country Cooking

We recently had a family reunion at Mon & Mone’s place (i.e. Simon & Simone) in the country. I’m afraid I’ve fallen into the habit of calling my younger sister ‘Mone’ and her lovely husband ‘Mon’.

I have to say they are such a team! They have set up a beautiful home in the country for their 3 young sons. Their cooking is full of soul, flavour and love! The added bonus to their cooking is that it is always healthy……..as in sooooo healthy my body starts to detox as soon as I step through their front door. Mone, even grinds her own wheat and makes her own bread. My teenage son looks in her pantry and wonders exactly what he is looking at!

They have a great mud-brick oven in their backyard. So homemade pizza it is… where everyone gets involved.

Thanks for such a wonderful week-end!
