True Love Magazine Feature: Get Sexy Traditional Recipes


It’s amazing how one can get featured and never know about it.  To tell you the truth, at times I just see my stats going up the roof and I wonder where my name and blog are mentioned!

Last week, I was attending an event I got to meet the True Love Food Editor, Mokgadi.  I didn’t even know she is now the food editor.  Well, this is my story with True Love Magazine.  I used to be the biggest fan and a collector of their magazine and recipes when mam’ Dora Sitole was the food editor.  I also loved the work done by Tumelo Sebopha.  Then they changed, the food pages were not so important anymore.  I stopped buying the mag.  But till this day, I still go to my vintage collection which dates back from 2005.

When I met Mokgadi, after our introduction she was like “we featured your blog in our April issue”.   That explains the stats!

I went to buy a copy, and let me tell you, my love for the mag has been re-ignited!  It’s not because of the feature.  No, I checked out the food pages and I am utterly impressed.  It’s traditional dishes all the way!

So please, if you are following this blog that means you love traditional recipes.  Do your self a favour a get a copy.  There are delicious and beautifully styled traditional recipes such as, Curried Chicken Feet (Maotwana), Pork Trotters, Ox Liver etc.   You are going to love them!  Plus check out my blog feature while you’re at it!
