Back Chatter on Eggs

The egg is nature's fast food.  An amazing micro-meal packed with nutrients and an essential ingredient in our kitchens.  

Eggs may have become an essential ingredient in our kitchens, but are we as comfortable buying eggs as we used to be?   A bewildering array of names and choices is available on supermarket shelves.

Back Chat helps you solve these problems and sort out any indecision.  Parents of young children, carers of the elderly and anybody in between, this is for all of you.

Should you still have questions that need answering, do contact me at Back Chat http://www.leslieback.co.za or email me at les@leslieback.co.za .  I look forward to many eggstraordinary conversations.

Incidentally, which did come first, the chicken or the egg?

Back Chatter on Chocolate



It flatters you for a while, It warms you for an instant and then it kindles a mortal fever in you."
So said Madame de Sévigné, the famous 17th-century letter writer.

Back Chat goes back 3000 years to trace the origins of chocolate and then travels up to the present day.   Join this voyage of discovery and see where the adventure takes you.

If you have chocolate tales to tell or questions to ask, please contact me at Back Chat at http://www.leslieback.co.za or email me at les@leslieback.co.za .  I look forward to many chocolate conversations.

Tuscan Temptation



Tuscany teases, tempts and tantalizes.    There is a sensual quality to everything from the superb food to the fine art that one encounters wherever one goes.  The Tuscans themselves are a joyful people, fiercely proud of their glorious place in the sun.  Eugene and I have been completely seduced by the sheer lusciousness and beauty of everything.

Explore this lovely area with Back Chat and experience a large dose of La Dolce Vita.  If you would like to know any more, do contact me at Back Chat or email me at les@leslieback.co.za . Ciao for now.

Rendezvous on the Riviera - A Month in Mougins - Part 1

Our 'Paradise On Earth' is the French Riviera.  Eugene and I love all things French and the French Riviera allows us to indulge that love.  Also the beauty of the scenery and the quaintness of the little villages and the 'vielles villes' that charm with their mellow age and distinction.
Join Back Chat on a romp through the high- roads and by- roads of this magic place.  Do come along and have the time of your life.

Rendezvous on the Riviera - A Month in Mougins - Part 2

"Our Paradise on earth is the French Riviera." Join Back Chat in the second of a two part series. "Only the French have the artistic quality, panache and quirkiness to preserve this dream place from becoming prosaic and commonplace."

My Secret Paris



Paris is a place of special dreams for my husband Eugene and me. In this article I have written about some of our experiences that do not involve major tourist destinations, Our Secret Paris. We discovered these during our many visits to the 'City of Lights.'

Join us in this magical city and share the wonderment. I would be most happy to share our secrets and knowledge with you. Contact me at Back Chat or by email at les@leslieback.co.za . I look forward to hearing from you.
