Drawing inspiration from, Soweto, Mama D and her gran’s cooking, Chef Nti realised that in order to talk to a new generation she had to reinvent these flavours in a fresh, innovative way. Chef Nti – My Modern African Kitchen embraces this concept, celebrating food that is proudly South African.
‘It’s important to me that my first cookbook celebrates maize, not only as an essential part of South African culinary heritage but also as one of the few equalisers in our beautiful and diverse country. I want to instil a sense of pride in what we grew up eating.’
