Never has connecting been more important and needed. With South Africa on a 21-day lockdown, the restaurant industry has become one of those most deeply affected, and chefs have started taking to social media to sprinkle some positivity back into our feeds during these trying times. With everything from backyard braais to the best-ever banana bread, our local culinary heroes are keeping us connected and inspired in the kitchen. Here are just a few of our favourites to follow.
Chef David Higgs is no stranger in front of the camera and his daily Instagram lives are definitely going to get you hooked. The Marble chef is keeping fans inspired by sending recipe ideas for what’s in the fridge, doing hilarious daily recipes videos on bloody Marys, risotto, scrambled eggs, and what’s been dubbed a “lamb stewy broth thingy”.
