From Friday the 13th, to not taking the last biscuit because you won’t get married, superstitions are usually meant to scare us into not doing something.
Nothing is off limits when it comes to these unfounded beliefs, yet one sometimes can’t help but wonder if these things are ever true. Although, I’m yet to meet anyone who's grown horns on their head because they ate while lying on their back. Who does that anyway?
Celebrity chef and author, Siba Mtongana recently asked her Instagram followers to share their food superstitions and some of the replies were hilarious.
Siba started the conversation with her own story: “Growing up we were told not to eat or taste from the pot (ukutyel' embizeni) otherwise it would rain on your wedding day and yoooh!”
