The show, screened on Mnet during 2017, took viewers on a magical and mouth-watering adventure through some of Southern Africa’s most beautiful scenery, from Mpumalanga, through Northern KZN and all the way up Mozambique, whilst sharing exciting and interesting foods and recipes, indicative of each area, along the way.
“We felt confident that pairing food and recipes with the magic and beauty of the African continent, together with Sarah Graham as host, was a winning formula.” Continued McClelland. “This nomination is not only a great source of pride but, most importantly, it adds enormous credibility to our brand, all of which serves to enable us to continue delivering a positive contribution towards this important industry.”
