Food Network is proving that local is indeed lekker with the upcoming premiere of two exciting new South African cooking shows starring home-grown talents Chef Katlego Mlambo and Chef Nti. This showcase of culinary excellence kicks off with the premier ‘Inside Job with chef Katlego Mlambo’ on 13 March, followed by ‘Street Food in Africa with Chef Nti’ on 17 March.
Nthabiseng Ramaboa, better known as Chef Nti, hails from Soweto. She worked in fashion and facility management, before taking on the food industry.
In ‘Street Food in Africa’ she takes viewers on a journey around South Africa, from its cities to its townships, all while exploring what defines the country’s culinary culture. By drawing on the authentic flavours she grew up with, Chef Nti shows us how food is such an integral part of our identity – our national story. Chef Nti shares insights and her take on iconic dishes that have been reinterpreted and remixed over the years.
‘Inside Job’ premieres on DSTV Channel 175 on 13 March and ‘Street Food in Africa’ the following week on 17 March.
