Fleurs Place of Moeraki

Now isn't that a pretty picture? It's Fleur Sullivan's famous seafood chowder, complete with delectable Blueskin Bay littleneck clams, scallops and mussels, all on the shell in a tomato and fish stock base. Accompanied by fresh bread and a crisp grassy Marlborough sauvignon blanc on a sunny spring day, and it's just so easy to forget all the bad things about the world...

Which is probably why Fleurs is so popular with the rich and famous. But you don't have to be featured in the social pages to enjoy a meal there, and everyone is treated with the same friendly good humour.

Fleurs Place at Moeraki is (like Fleur's inn Olivers at Clyde before it) quite simply a legend. Fleur is known for her personality, her hospitality, and of course, the great food. And as well as eating the food, you can now read the book! (The chowder recipe is in there.)

Then if you haven't seen the book yet, you must demand to be sent it from 'home'! The recipes and photos are a brilliant way to conjure up past experiences :-)
