Mzansi’s home cooks get creative in the kitchen

#FFMLockdownmeals competition entries have us feasting with our eyes

-

Mzansi home cooks and kitchen creatives, you’ve heeded the quarantine cooking call! And yes, I’m impressed. Honestly, all hats off, because you’ve flooded our socials with your favourite lockdown meals and delicacies.

Food For Mzansi’s followers accepted the challenge to get extra creative in the kitchen during the national lockdown by entering the #FFMLockdownMeals cooking competition. From walkie talkies and prawn curry to cottage pie and pizza, the images alone are mouthwatering.

While you still have a day to enter (hurry on over to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram), we couldn’t resist sharing lifting the lid of the pot for a peeking at the entries we’ve received so far.

Competitor Hope Moteane has not only been cooking up a storm in her kitchen but was even inspired to create her very own veggie garden in her backyard and now makes farm-to-table meals for her family.

 

What to cook? What to cook? Why not play around with those many potatoes in your cooking pantry like Greshan Madhan, who has made these lovely cottage pies. Presentation is key, so kudos.

Avoid unnecessary drama with the South African Police Service over bread rolls and make magwinya instead. These are now the sandwich replacement of choice according to Christine Saunders.

Health bowls were all the rage when we weren’t under lockdown. These are also easy to make, according to West G, who shares this vibrant healthy dish filled with nutritious goodies.

Even meatless dishes are allowed! Moushumi Maharaj made this curry with soya prawns.

No one in their right mind could ever get tired of chicken. Gcinile Ndinyane, makes this sticky BBQ chicken.

The competition winners will be announced on the 16th of April. There are three prizes up for grabs: a Takealot voucher worth R500, a R500 Shoprite Checkers voucher of R 500 or a Corteva goodie basket.
