Evita Bezuidenhout, South Africa’s favourite tannie, manages to balance work and play in the kitchen as she dishes out some advice for friends in high places. For your enemies, putting a plate in front of them is “the right thing to do”. For Julius Malema, she recommends “loads of cholesterol”. Evita urges all South Africans abroad to sample the recipes from her book Kossie Sikelela, so they can bring home the bacon.
“My liewe aarde,” tinkles Tannie Evita as she walks into a crowded room filled with book lovers.
She’s promoting her first cookbook, Evita’s Kossie Sikelela (Random/Struik, R150), which has been cleverly put together with great paintings by artist Linda Vicquery, capturing Evita in the style of different artists stretching from Tretchikoff to Frida Kahlo, as well as good food.
