Humour is definitely what Pam Freir is all about; her many anecdotes about food and cooking are laugh-out-loud funny. She and her husband are true gourmands, ready to shop, prepare, eat and enjoy many a muddled type of feast... as long as there's good company and a fine red on hand. Her tales will make you feel at home and very, very comfy.
