Grow­ing up on a farm, Chris ate mainly rice, meat and pota­toes. Later when he lived in Lon­don he was of­ten broke and had to eat what was avail­able and learnt to eat more veg­eta­bles. Back in South Africa he de­cided one evening to make a dish with all the veg­eta­bles he’d eaten while he was away.

For vel­vety, light mashed pota­toes, stir the pota­toes with a whisk
