I am a passionate Cape Malay cook with over 30 years experience in the food and beverage industry. For me and my sister Ruth, our unique culinary traditions are a rich legacy passed down from generation to generation. Food has offered us both an opportunity to both better our lives and the community we come from. We were born in Manenberg on the Cape Flats, a community that was borne out of Apartheid's spatial laws, yet rich with diverse cultures as a result. Growing up on the Flats allowed us to forge deep bonds with neighbors, and create a community based on love, kindness and food.
