Rele­bo­hile’s win­ning dish is packed with flavour and Har­ves­time veg­gies for added nu­tri­ents


A TASTY stew is as good as a warm hug that re­minds you of home – and this week’s Rate My Plate win­ner, Rele­bo­hile Phooka, proved her spruced-up ver­sion is all that and more. The 21-year-old stu­dent went up against fel­low con­tes­tants Bongiwe Smith and Buhle Twala, but her dish ticked all the boxes for Chef Dede.

Rele­bo­hile plans to open a cater­ing com­pany one day and she al­ready has a win­ning dish un­der her belt. Now you can give her tricks a go and cre­ate the dish for your fam­ily.
