Ukutya Kwasekhaya means “home food” in isiXhosa, the first language of South Africa’s former president, Mr Nelson Mandela, and his personal chef of many years, Xoliswa Ndoyiya. This book is a collection of Xoliswa’s favourite recipes; recipes that she has prepared for Mr Mandela and his family, friends, visiting heads of state, celebrities and politicians, for over 20 years. Each recipe is accompanied by a beautiful full-colour photograph and a quotation or anecdote from someone who is either especially fond of the dish or who has a special memory or story to tell. This year Madiba will celebrated his 94th birthday, and, although he’s the most famous man in the world, his tastes are simple; he is happiest with traditional food, which could be the key to his longevity. He prefers fruit for dessert, for example, and porridge for breakfast. He just loves his umngqusho (samp and beans), his umleqwa (farm chicken), ulusu (tripe), amasi (sour milk) and other isiXhosa dishes, all of which — and more — occupy pride of place in this book, alongside paella, peri-peri chicken, prawn curry and a myriad other western delights. Sis’ Xoli, as she is affectionately known, serves up a simple, delicious, nourishing and visually appealing set of recipes. Each dish is easily prepared, and if done so in as loving a manner as Sis’ Xoli’s, your result will be very good indeed.
