Chef Liziwe Joins Live-Cook Channel’s 8th Episode

A talented woman with a penchant for making heartwarming, tasty, traditional food, Liziwe is an unstoppable force in the kitchen. Some of her many talents include being a food writer, a recipe developer, teaching cookery classes, running her own business, and being a brand influencer and ambassador for Drum Food and First Choice.

Before building a career in culinary, she worked in marketing and advertising – but food has always been a big part of her life. She began her journey in the kitchen at the tender age of 13 cooking Sunday lunch with mom for their large family.

Here’s what some of our guests have had to say about their cook-along: 

“Thank you for a wonderful event last night. Loved the relaxed yet informative way the class unfolded, and with two seasoned chefs! Loved the goodie box, the way all ingredients came pre-measured and packed – and of course loved the wine and chocolate! Super concept and beautifully executed.”
– Chandrika Marrie

“Who knew we could whip up an Almond & Sweet Potato Gnocchi in our very own kitchen! To be honest, we had some help from a few friends…top chefs to be exact. What a fun (and messy) adventure in the kitchen with my girls, Michelle, Pete and the Live-Cook Channel!”
– Mariette Du Toit-Helmbold

“My first vegetarian meal made from scratch…And it was finger-licking gooooooood!”
– Mpho Maroga
