Good Eats event comes to Masianokeng

Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

EVENTS and mar­ket­ing com­pany Emo­tivpr will host the sec­ond edi­tion of their Good Eats event in Masianokeng on Sun­day.

Ac­cord­ing to Emo­tivpr chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Mr Maps, Good Eats is a life­style con­cept based on eat­ing healthy food.

“We will in­vite a group of young, mo­ti­vated and like-minded in­di­vid­u­als to an easy and chilled en­vi­ron­ment on the last Sun­day of each month,” he told the Week­ender on Tues­day.

“While most peo­ple en­joy the tra­di­tional Shisa Nyama (braai), we want to pro­mote spe­cial dishes and en­cour­age the food cul­ture as op­posed to just meat and alcohol. The idea is to keep it simple, let the food do the talk­ing and just make sure the at­mos­phere is in­cred­i­ble through great mu­sic, brand as­so­ci­a­tion and good com­pany,” Mr Maps said.

He said the event will be held ev­ery last Sun­day of the month with dif­fer­ent dishes based on the sea­sons.

The pi­lot event was held dur­ing Easter in March with the fa­mous Le­sotho trout as the dish of the day. On Sun­day the main dish will be the Potjiekos — a tra­di­tional African stew pre­pared out­doors. It will be served with Le­qe­bekoane (home baked bread).

Mr Maps said cook­ing was his sec­ond hobby af­ter mu­sic, adding he would part­ner with “ac­com­plice, Mr Pork Stir­fry” to pre­pare the Potjiekos.

“We have part­nered with El­le­gado Drive Thru and Kelmo Car­wash to host the themed food event start­ing at mid­day at the serene Masianokeng vil­lage. As a res­i­dent of Masianokeng, this is a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to give back to my com­mu­nity as they have al­ways sup­ported me.

“This will cre­ate jobs for young peo­ple in the com­mu­nity as we will hire them to pre­pare all the re­quired in­gre­di­ents and lo­gis­tics while some will work at the car­wash and El­le­gado,” he said.

This event will be spon­sored by Sa­vanah Loco. DJS Da Starr, Agent K, Charma Xzit, Hobbs and Mr Maps will play a di­verse mix of hip hop, deep house, lounge and neo soul mu­sic.
