Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - BEAUTY MUST-HAVE -

‘The of­fer­ing of food is the of­fer­ing of time, love and the spirit of you,’ says Oprah You de­scribe your Turkey Chilli and Skinny Corn­bread (two of the recipes from Oprah’s book fea­tured in GH this month) as your go-to com­fort food. What else are your favourites these days? There’s a truf­fle tortellini with stuffed cheese that is my favourite. I carry around truf­fle zest sea­son­ing in my purse and don’t leave home with­out it! I was re­cently stopped in cus­toms in South Africa. They were ask­ing me what it was and I was think­ing, ‘Please don’t let me be on CNN news try­ing to smug­gle truf­fles!’ I’m not telling peo­ple to go out and spend money on truf­fles be­cause they will be like, ‘Oprah GH TIP Old Bay sea­son­ing is an Amer­i­can cup­board sta­ple – a unique blend of herbs and spices that com­ple­ments crab. In SA, use a Ca­jun spice blend in its place. you are crazy!’ But truf­fle zest is like car­ry­ing truf­fles in a bag.

The of­fer­ing of food is the of­fer­ing of your time, love and the spirit of you. I want things to be sim­ple but also de­li­cious and in­ter­est­ing. And your favourite desserts? I don’t have a sweet tooth, but we are a sor­bet home. We just put fruit in the ma­chine and it comes out as sor­bet. We use chunks of fruit or roasted peaches when peaches are fresh, flakes of co­conut when it is avail­able or lit­tle tiny slices of sugar ginger. That’s my go-to dessert.
