The Celeb Feasts with Zola March 2019 line-up has been cooking up fantastic recipes, with some of South Africa’s best-loved personalities bringing laughs, some moving moments and lots of fun into award-winning, television chef Zola Nene’s kitchen.
The wonderful guest list has already included soulful singer-songwriter Zahara accompanied by her mentor Mojalefa ‘Majakes’ Thebe (all pictured right), the Sowetan-born singer, songwriter and music producer. Then fellow award-winning, celebrity chef Lentswe Bhengu, who hung up his corporate suit for a chef’s apron, was featured next. He brought his mentor – and sister – Swankie Mafoko, the actress best known for her role as Eshe on the SABC2 telenovela Keeping Score, into Zola’s kitchen.
Upcoming guests on Celeb Feasts with Zola March 2019
The young and upcoming star, Ayanda McKayi, is next in Zola’s kitchen on 19 March 2019. He brings along his mentor, the renowned casting director, Bonnie Lee Bouman. The two chat and celebrate their wonderful working relationship with Zola, and, of course, cook up a storm. They make a roasted tomato tart, chicken sausage stuffed rice balls for the main dish and a beautiful peppermint crisp trifle for dessert.
The winner of Idols 2015, Karabo Mogane, hits Zola’s festive kitchen on 26 March 2019, with his beautiful sister, and mentor, Kholofelo Mogane (all pictured left). Karabo, who struggled with the instant fame after his Idols win, is a man with a fresh outlook on life and he is very proud of the single he released last year called Nginothando. The siblings – with the help of Zola – cook up a simple but delicious meal. They make rice and baby marrow fritters with smoked salmon and herbed yoghurt as starters. Oxtail stew with dumplings is served as the main course, with a peach and blueberry strudel for dessert.
Singer and song-writer Langa Mavuso, known for his unique and beautiful voice, is Zola’s fabulous guest for the final episode of the season on 2 April.
His album Liminal Sketches was released in 2016 and since then this talented musician has been thriving. He is joined by his mentor, the acclaimed jazz singer and songwriter Zoe Modiga, who has been nominated and won various awards for her music (all pictured right).
The two friends cook up a delicious three-course meal, starting with spicy fish cakes with pineapple salsa, creamy pork medallions for main course and a dessert of brûléed chocolate rice pudding. A winning menu to end off this spectacular season of Celeb Feasts with Zola.
