Truffles anyone?

My wife Yvonne makes the best truffles in town and the rest of South Africa and maybe even the best in the world. It’s an old Dutch recipe and part of the ingredients have to come from abroad such as the cocoa for the simple reason there is no premium quality cocoa available in South Africa.

It’s a hobby between her jewellery design and jewellery creating activities; all unique pieces and genuine handmade.

But this is about truffles. This morning she sold them on a market in the village and guess what? Sold out within the shortest possible time!!! Picture left: Yvonne flanked by Italian master chef Roberto and his South African wife Marissa.

African Feet

Almost 1000 sold during the past 5 years. Guess it’s one of the best private sold photographs from South Africa. South Africa is not a real photo-minded country but still; in virtually every town in the Overberg District in the Western Cape (where I live) there is one. Most however are sold overseas to destinations in Europe and the Americas. It all started with the UNESCO exhibition ‘The invisible visible’ in Oslo in 2017; an exhibition curated by a former (photography-) curator of the Prado in Madrid.
