WHAT DOES GOD SAY
THE MYTH OF PERFECTION
3 SOUS CHEF? COMMIS CHEF?
A WORTHY CAREER CHOICE
I grew up in Moletsane Soweto and went to school at Musi High Pimville in the ’70s. I am a mother of two and a proud grandmother of one.
I was schooled into the hospitality business with Portuguese cuisine, therefore fish, mainly shell fish fascinates me. I am a former owner of Rio Sol in Sandton and African Cuisine in Fourways. The Fourways restaurant gave me an opportunity to blend the two cuisine and come up with a unique African Mozambican fusion. I was in the hospitality business for 15 years before I ventured into writing and publishing heritage books.
“Food stairs my heart and makes my tongue a pen of a skilful writer...”
Therefore most of my conversations are centred around food.
The recipes are inspired by the many tables I served interacting with tourist from different countries in Africa. The core of my conversations however were inspired by personal circumstances. It began with a letter my daughter wrote to me. The pinnacle of my conversations however is the conversation with my mother which was forced on me by circumstances of my life when I had to go home. A conversation we had over a period of two years before her passing.
Subsequent to the above conversations I became skilled in talking through complex and painful situations using dinner tables and family meals as a stirring spoon.
