In the kitchen – Don­ald and Luyanda

Food bud­dies Don­ald Chipumha and Luyanda Mafanya bust their chops in the kitchen

True Love - - CONTENTS - By TUMELO MUSHI-SEBOPA Pho­to­graphs GRAEME WYL­LIE

They met through a mu­tual friend but their love for cook­ing sealed Don­ald Chipumha (28) and 23-year-old Luyanda Mafanya's friend­ship. Luyanda is an as­pir­ing cook and her In­sta­gram posts have gath­ered quite a fol­low­ing as she jour­neys through the culi­nary world. On the other hand, Don­ald is a pho­tog­ra­pher whose love for cook­ing was in­stilled by his fa­ther, who was an ace in the kitchen, and al­ways cooked for his fam­ily.

Through Don­ald's per­sua­sion, the two have en­tered the sec­ond sea­son of My Kitchen Rules

South Africa (MKRSA). "En­ter­ing the cook­ing show was a great plat­form to learn more, show off our com­bined cook­ing tal­ent and to pur­sue our dreams in the food in­dus­try," Don­ald says. He's the more artis­tic one while Luyanda is the queen of flavour. The pair pre­pared scrump­tious grilled Harissa lamb rib chops, and then Don­ald quickly whipped up some cous­cous to serve with the meat.

The two bud­dies have an amaz­ing un­der­stand­ing of each other, and know their way around the kitchen.

Catch this duo on MKRSA on MNet ev­ery Sun­day at 6 pm to watch their progress in the com­pe­ti­tion. Fol­low them on In­sta­gram: @cook­ing­with­luyanda and @pho­to­ge­nius­tats
