Based on the best selling books by Sally Andrew, RECIPES is the story of Tannie Maria, recipe columnist turned agony aunty who solves her readers’ problems with more recipes.

Set in the world centre for sheep farming, South Africa’s Klein Karoo, RECIPES central characters are the women at the local paper, the Eden Gazette. Maria, local reporter Jessie and editor Hattie are more determined to solve the murder of a local woman than the police. Starring Maria Doyle Kennedy, Tony Kgoroge and Kylie Fisher, RECIPES is an utterly original black comedy mystery baking show.
