The Chef, the bird and the blessing
Chef Mozzy Mlantushi is toiling in a safari company kitchen in the bush. He dreams of escaping the perilous wilderness and his doleful employer to become head chef in an upmarket restaurant in a far-away city.
When VIP guests arrive to record the song of a rare bird, he believes his big break has arrived. But is it his guests or the bird that hold the key to his future?
Both poignant and whimsical, The Chef, the Bird and the Blessing is a story about suppressed memory, friendship, and our relationship to the natural world.
Reviews from Netgalley:
