Her restaurant is called Fleurs Place (without an apostrophe) and it is Fleur who makes it special.
We’ve never had a bad meal there but the ones when she is there are better. Her personality makes it more than just a very good restaurant with wonderful food and good service.
That personality shines through in her autobiography, Fleur, the life and times of pioneering restaurateur Fleur Sullivan.
She was a woman ahead of her time in her appreciation of the importance of history and heritage; her enthusiasm for good local food and the part it plays in tourism; and also in setting up and running businesses while bringing up her children.
The book chronicles her adventures and ventures in business and life neither of which have been without their challenges.
It is a fascinating and inspiring read generously supplemented with photographs, including many recent ones by Aaron McLean.
Fleur, the life and times of pioneering restaurateur Fleur Sullivan, with Nathlaie Brown, published by Random House.
