TV PRESENTER ANDILE GAELESIWE
What do you absolutely refuse to eat?
I refuse to eat a pork head – no pork chops or pork ribs for me either. Pork doesn’t make me sick – I just don’t like it. The only pork meat I can get away with eating is bacon.
The most unusual thing you’ve eaten?
Masonja (mopani worms). There are people who love it but the idea of eating a worm scares me.
What’s your favourite childhood food?
My grandmother’s cooking gives me a fuzzy feeling every time I think about it. She used to make a beef curry stew with vegetables and she’d add dumplings while the stew cooked.
How are you preparing for your summer body?
I’m not necessarily doing it to get a summer body but I’ve made a decision to eat healthily and avoid junk food.
Your favourite dish to cook?
I love making Thai food and my best dish is Mongolian beef. I love cooking vegetable-based foods. The vegetables need to stay crisp and you have to prepare the beef a few days before cooking it.
