Lorna Maseko, celebrity chef and TV personality, deliver a fantastic cookbook which bagged her 2 prestigious international prizes at the Gourmand 2020 awards.
Briefly.co.za learned that she won best celebrity chef and best international cookbook. She served up the good news on Thursday on social media.
Edouard Cointreau, the founder and president of the awards, explained that the event had been put on hold but the winners would be announced online according to the Sowetan Live.
“International travel is now impossible. Most of our winners will be in their homes for several more weeks. So we realised that releasing the list now makes hundreds happier in these very difficult times.”
Lorna released her book last year in September. The self-taught chef told Sunday Times that she considered herself as good as any 'proper' chef.
“Some people would say I am not a proper chef but learning how to do things in your own kitchen is a trial-and-error situation. It's like dancing because of the repetitiveness - working at something until you perfect it.
“The days of being without a qualification holding you back are gone. Now there's a level of craftiness you have to have naturally to do the job.”
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Somizi Mhlongo will be using his master chef skills to educate and entertain us all – he’s starting a YouTube Channel.
Everyone knows how Somizi loves to cook. Our guy knows a thing or two about throwing a boujee dish together, not just eating it.
