- Charlize Theron shared her love of hot food and social meal sharing while appearing on a YouTube video recently
- The Hollywood star shared that she also has hidden talents which include the ability to cater a banquet
- On the video she shares some common South African vocabulary and one of her own braai recipes
South African actress and philanthropist Charlieze Theron shared some spicy food with YouTuber, Sean Evans on his “First we Feast’s Hot Ones” show, giving viewers both locally and abroad insight into how much she still represents the country of her birth when it comes to her taste in food and drink.
Briefly.co.za gathers that her son calls her Mama Spice because she loves hot food like many others who hail from Africa’s shores.
The Hollywood superstar said as soon as she was settled in the USA and had built up a circle of friends in Los Angeles, she reverted to her South African roots when it came to choosing how to spend her free time.
She shared that not only is she a bit of a foodie, she is also a budding chef, able to whip up a 10 course meal for up to 25. Had the acting gig not worked out, she probably could have done well in catering.
During the show Charlize sings one of her favourite South African ‘expressions’/songs (‘sit jou hand voer jou mond‘), and shares her own recipe for braai ‘toasties’ (known in South Africa as ‘broodjies‘!).
She says her love of cooking is more about the social aspect of having everybody in the kitchen and drinking a few bottles of wine. “It’s very South African to socialise around food and drink, and how I was raised,” she said.
