We chatted to talented food editor of Bona magazine, Ntwenhle Gcabashe, and promptly invited her to present the first Spekko rice sponsored Kasi Kitchen series on Soweto TV. Ntwenhle – is not only the food editor for Bona, but she also has great foodie Facebook page: In the Kitchen with Ntwenhle Gcabashe. This girl has gone places with her tasty talent that most of us only dream about. After completing a diploma in hospitality at the ML Sultan Technikon in Durban (now DUT), she worked as a chef at Disney World in Florida in the USA for 12 months. She then worked as a chef on the picturesque Guernsey Island for five years. Returning to South Africa in 2008, she convinced Sbu Mpungose, the then Bona editor, to appoint her as food editor. And she’s never looked back.
