The movie is based on Marita van der Vyver’s bestselling novel (known as ‘Just Dessert, Dear’ in English), with Anna-Mart van der Merwe playing Clara Brand, a woman whose husband (Deon Lotz) leaves her for her much younger colleague and friend (Angelique Gerber).

In the aftermath of the divorce, Clara rediscovers her love for food and eventually she meets Ari (Frank Opperman), who cooks with as much abandon as she does – and then things get spicy!

Director Etienne Fourie (Die windpomp, Liewe Kersfeesvader) adapted the book with Marita van der Vyver, and the actors deliver stellar performances with his guidance.

Elzabé Zietsman is hilarious as Clara’s best friend Minette, and Bouwer Bosch and Riaan Visman also bring comic relief.
