Flights back home.
Edwina grew up in a home where dinner parties and entertaining were the life blood. She was a medical social worker. It was not until July 2000, when having shed everything, she left Australia bound for Spain with receipts for things to follow. Later, she bought a riad in Morocco, adding another culinary destination to her seeming empire. In February 2007, the doors were flung open in welcome.
