Welcome toLife in the South

La vie en Rose en France



Let me introduce myself

Hi Everyone, I am Mariza. I am a smalltown girl from the Free State of South Africa, that has been living in the South of France with my husband and our two kids for the past seven years. I’m a passionate baker, lover of coffee, and peanut butter! Hope you love creating and testing these recipes as much as I have over the years.

C’est la vie is well known right across the world. Never have I thought how relevant this would become for me. A smalltown girl moving to the south of France was so far fetched from my mind.

I said bon voyage to my family and embraced the life of the “Crème de la crème“.

Finding “Joie de vivre“, joy of life, in a foreign country has become beyond my wildest expectations.

As they say “A picture is worth a thousand words”.
