Food & travel are perfect companions, and we know that Silver Travellers love to enjoy local delicacies in different destinations on their travels.

May 2019

Our Cook Club launched with a fabulous Tuscan recipe and the opportunity to win a copy of The Tuscan Sun Cookbook. The winner was Caroline Bullen who said:

The Tuscan Sun CookbookThis is a delightfully produced book, beautifully illustrated and written by Frances and Edward Mayers who have lived for over two decades at Bramasole in Cortona.

As you begin to read the book, it's as though you are being transported to Tuscany to share in the experiences of living, cooking and eating in this fabulous area. Visiting the natural countryside, vineyards, cheese makers, local markets and butchers all added to the inspiration of the authors to help focus on 'traditional food.'

So many tempting recipes to try out and it even tells you the best wines to drink with them. 

A book full of smiles, passion for food and appreciation of life itself!

Cookery book May winner:
Caroline Bullen from Chichester
