Chef Nti’s recipe for suc­cess

The Sunday Independent - - WORLD - AMANDA MALIBA | @Aman­daMal­iba

CELEBRITY chef Nti demon­strated once again that whip­ping out con­fec­tionery treats in 10 min­utes is a piece of cake.

The food fundi did what she does best at a bak­ing ex­hi­bi­tion held at her Taste Kitchen eatery in Joburg’s trendy Mabo­neng on Thurs­day.

Chef Nti, aka Nthabiseng Ram­aboa, in part­ner­ship with Golden Cloud, show­cased her 10 best bak­ing tech­niques to a host of celebri­ties. The kitchen fea­tured a re­fresh­ing mod­ern blue­print that re­sem­bles Mabo­neng’s now tra­di­tional de­signs, but not ev­ery­thing was so great.

With sum­mer tem­per­a­tures peak­ing, be­ing con­fined to a small space with a stove and an oven with lit­tle room to ma­noeu­vre can be un­com­fort­able.

The chef, bub­bly as ever, was as cool as a cucumber as she made bak­ing 10-minute cakes a mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence for every­one in at­ten­dance.

And those who are nat­u­rally in love with the art took over the kitchen and tried their hand at all sorts of flavours and gar­nishes.

Those who are less ad­ven­tur­ous in the kitchen gladly took the back seat and ob­served in awe.

The celebs who jumped in to be part of the bak­ing team were Tshepi Vundla, model Rosette Ncwana and Trevor Sineke, the mu­si­cian from the Dream Team group. Look­ing all fes­tive and gor­geous in a green num­ber, me­dia per­son­al­ity Penny Le­byane walked around, min­gling with the rest.

In the end, cook­ing or bak­ing pro­vided a per­fect set­ting for a hearty get-to­gether.
