Starting this month, I'm expanding this blog by starting a series of articles - with recipes - about local food fundis, those lesser-known food heroes of South Africa who are making delicious waves in kitchens, bakeries and small home-factories, and on farms throughout the country.
I'll be showcasing the creativity and flair of some very talented home-cooks and caterers, along with bakers, bread-makers, farmers, smokers, picklers, bottlers, cheese-makers and purveyors of fine, fresh seasonal produce.
The first food fundi in the series:
- Gilly Walters of Wedgewood Nougat. Click here to read about her.
Michael and Michele Karamanof: Two professionals who have made food and cookery their passion.
- Peter-James Smith, food critic and sausage-maker extraordinaire
- Jo and Brian Dick, of the Cheese Shop, in Linden
