Inspired by Disney’s locally produced live action show Disney’s Cookabout – we are sharing with you some of our healthy and oh-so delicious recipes that were featured on the recent season of the show. The cooking show sees kids learn where our food comes from, visiting farms around the country before heading back to the kitchen to learn to cook with the ingredients. This recipe was inspired by a visit to the Shangana Cultural Village in Hazyview, Mpumalanga.
