Book launch

Denise Cowburn-Levy in discussion with long-standing friend Gabi Lowe.

Former international model and chef Denise Cowburn-Levy, celebrated the launch of her book, Around My Table, at Exclusive Books, Constantia Village, on Thursday January 30. Ms Cowburn-Levy recalled that despite being an international model for years, she had an abiding love of food and explored the flavours of the world while she travelled. She has kept journals throughout her life, and these form the basis for the content Around My Table, which grew out of an amateur, writing course she attended in Greece with close friend Gabi Lowe. In the book, Ms Cowburn-Levy shares some of her best recipes from Greece to Thailand and from her homes in Italy and Fresnaye in Cape Town. The book includes culinary tributes to Ms Cowburn-Levy’s late mom, and also her mother-in-law.
