Food Stories by Tebo and Lebo Ndala 

In an interview with IOL late last-year, the twins mentioned that ‘Food Stories’ is their first recipe cookbook and it is their invitation to anyone who enjoys good food to join them on their journey. 

“It’s our very first cookbook, which took bit over two years to create. We are beside ourselves, we are so happy and we are very proud of ourselves. We worked so hard on this book. The people we’ve met, the experiences we’ve had and the places we’ve had the pleasure to travel to inspire this book. This book is like our mini-memoir,” they said.
