Cooking has always been one of my great passions, I love the creativity and for me nothing could be better than sharing a meal with family and friends. In traditional African culture, the communal nature of eating extends to serving food on a single platter so all meals are by definition a family affair. From my earliest memories, in the farm kitchens of my childhood, to the bush camps were I would later pass on what I had learned, food has been at the center of my life. It has always been a dream of mine to share these recipes with a wider audience together with insights into the multicultural origins of Southern Africa’s rich and complex food culture. I hope you will enjoy this journey, please share our blog with your friends, sign up to receive regular updates and recipes as they are posted, and give us your feedback and questions, we would love to hear from you.
“ There is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you had drunk half a bottle of champagne – bubbling over with heartfelt gratitude for being alive” – Karen Blixen
