- Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is not just a great rugby player but also a culinary whiz
- He showed off his cooking skills in an Instagram video
- We were treated to an intimate look at his home life as well as some interesting views from Rachel
Springbok hero Siya Kolisi has done amazing things for South Africa but has still found the time to film a cooking show.
The humble and quiet giant has warmed the hearts of South Africans and does look a bit out of place in the kitchen as we are more used to seeing him on the rugby field.
Throughout the video, he took questions from fans and answered them as best he could. It was actually quite intimate and people were interacting with Siya on a personal level and he always maintained the humble honest manner which we love.
Briefly.co.za learned that he was cooking a delicious chicken stir-fry, a huge portion at that. He even got some "expert" advice from his family members.
We also got to see what Siya's favourite beer, alcohol-free Castle. The chef had some interesting questions himself which he directed at Rachel:
"What do you call one string of spaghetti?"
His daughter made a cameo in the video and she is just the cutest thing!
When the 'boss' came into the kitchen for a taste test, she was looking a bit sceptical but Siya was relieved when Rachel gave him the nod of approval.
"So I'm headed in the right direction?" he asked as Rachel forked a piece of chicken into her mouth.
According to Rachel, a husband must cook:
"It's a non-negotiable," she told her husband.
Siya revealed that being able to cook for his family gives him confidence and it wasn't always like that. Now Rachel is often very busy travelling or in meetings and he is happy to cook for his family.
We were given a rare glimpse into his real family life.
Instagram users had some pointers for Siya:
"My bro , you need serious cooking lessons and I m not happy you touching chicken and touch everything else without washing your hands in between. With chicken is very important, sorry captain I had to say it. Give me a bell and I 'll give you a few lessons bra. But it's good to see you trying."
"Your daughter was so cute dancing and speaking a few words of Xhosa, a man who cooks is so attractive! Love it!!"
"Completely off topic... but I feel so normal knowing CocoMelon rings loud in other homes too."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Social media user, @Bongeka_QB, shared photos of her unidentified friend on Twitter on Saturday.
