Jen Sakko and Shawn Petersen, who live in Healy (near Denali National Park, Alaska), were visiting South Africa over the holidays (and no doubt enjoying the Southern Hemisphere weather versus Northern…), and had the loveliest time at Smitten restaurant in Franschhoek with Jen’s 90-year-old aunt, Gladys Brice, from Rondebosch, to celebrate her birthday. “Chris Smit was so personable and attentive and even gave Aunt Gladys a tour of the kitchen – she was in heaven,” said Jen. * (Many years ago, in the 1990s, Jen, Shawn and Bolander editor Carolyn Frost worked together at Home James in Winter Park, Colorado, and have remained friends ever since, and most years get together during their annual pilgramage to South Africa at years’ end). Pictured are Gladys and Chris at the restaurant.
