The Lazy Makoti by Mogau Seshoene
Mastering the kitchen can seem pretty intimidating, especially when confronted with Instagram and TV chefs who seem to do everything with ease while, at the same time, relating a cute anecdote on camera. The Lazy Makoti’s Guide the Kitchen was written and compiled with YOU in mind, and takes into consideration all the different occasions a South African kitchen might have to cater for. The recipes use simple ingredients that are probably already in your pantry or fridge, and if not, they’re readily available in all our favourite grocery stores.
The straightforward recipes take you through breakfast basics, show-stopper seven-colour Sunday lunches, heart-warming soups and stews, sweet cheats and even traditional African favourites, just like gogo used to make them. Oh, and how to whip up amazing meals from leftovers (shhh… don’t tell the family)! No more excuses – it’s time to step into those domestic goddess stilettos.
