Her pas­sion for food was in­stilled by her French mother, she says, and a long stint of run­ning the tuck­shop at her daugh­ters’ school. Many would say that would quell any pas­sion, but not Frere, who has a great palate, loves drink­ing real cham­pagne and even named her dog af­ter her favourite brand. Help! There’s a Guest at My Ta­ble fol­lows on from Help! There’s a Stove in My Kitchen, which orig­i­nated as a guide for her daugh­ters when they left home. The new cook­book is full of good ad­vice and recipes which make one want to rush into the kitchen. It’s aimed at the novice or the en­ter­tainer look­ing for in­spi­ra­tion — a com­pi­la­tion of sim­ple, tried-and-tested recipes. It in­cludes tips on how to set a ta­ble prop­erly, choos­ing a menu, set­ting up and fin­ish­ing touches. ‘Help! There’s a Guest at My Ta­ble’, pub­lished by Pen­guin Ran­dom House South Africa, R220
