There are two local programmes to look out for on Food Network, both starring home-grown culinary talent! Chef Katlego Mlambo of The Marabi Club will be hosting Inside Job with Chef Katlego Mlambo – set to premier on 13th March – and Chef Nti’s Street Food in Africa with Chef Nti will kick off on 17th March.
“Nothing quite hits the spot like local cuisine and the same can be said for local talent and entertainment,” says Henry Windridge, Senior Director: Marketing, Digital and Creative at Discovery Inc. “Food has always brought people together – especially during 2020 with extended lockdowns, social distancing and the inability to break bread with those closest to us. Food is how South Africans come together. The personalities and themes of our two new shows are geared to do just that!”
‘Inside Job with Chef Katlego Mlambo’ follows the chef on his journey to create gourmet food with South African flair and a taste for Africa. Each themed episode showcases his love for local ingredients and fine dining culture, while he dances through to his favourite playlists.
Nthabiseng Ramaboa, better known as Chef Nti, hails from Soweto. She worked in fashion and facility management, before taking on the food industry.
In ‘Street Food in Africa’ she takes viewers on a journey around South Africa, from its cities to its townships, all while exploring what defines the country’s culinary culture. By drawing on the authentic flavours she grew up with, Chef Nti shows us how food is such an integral part of our identity – our national story. Chef Nti shares insights and her take on iconic dishes that have been reinterpreted and remixed over the years.
