Some of this streamer’s light mysteries are such fluff they float away while you’re watching. This South African series is for the most part a cut above, and is guaranteed to make the mouth water as we’re introduced to Tannie “Auntie” Maria (Outlander and Orphan Black’s excellent Maria Doyle Kennedy), the Julia Child of her rural Karoo community. Her recipes are sumptuous, and yet the struggling local newspaper cancels her column, assigning her to a new gig as an advice columnist—which puts Maria in the middle of domestic intrigue that leads to murder. Her correspondents, including a wife yearning to escape an abusive marriage, speak directly to the camera as their letters are read, adding an emotional urgency to the shenanigans as Maria and ambitious reporter Jessie (Kylie Fisher) play amateur detective.
