After numerous setbacks and several unforeseen circumstances it is with a big sigh of relief to say that Mzansi Style Cuisine has finally come to life.  I have been playing around with the idea for quite some time now, since 2009 to be exact.  I took my time to research on blogging, platforms, website designs, domains, hosting, food photography and the works.  Along the way I’ve received amazing support from my family, friends, senior women in the community and fellow bloggers.

I thank my mom for employing herself as my regional research officer (haha!), for organising senior women in the community to share their recipes and the background for each dish and for taking the time to share some of her own indigenous food knowledge with us.  Nangamso Dlamini!

A special thank you to the design team, thank you for putting all your brilliance and hard work into making this site possible! Last but not least I would like to extend my gratitude to you….yes you my follower…for visiting the site.  I hope you like the dishes we present to you and get to try them out.  Don’t be a stranger. Happy Cooking!

    YEAH!!!! Thank you very much, Thuli! I am a receipe collecter and your lamb stew with samp & beans is next on my experiment list. I would also like to see what we call “Zulu Cabbage” 🙂 it tastes like fried cabbage with curry in it – but i cant ever seem to get it right. With a bit of luck you would know what i am refering to.

      Hi Chantell, Thank you for your comment and the suggestion 🙂 Keep your eyes on the blog we’ll get the recipe just for you!
