Shoutout to this wonderful woman for keeping the South African cultural melting pot cuisine of the Cape Malay (and all its associated history) alive the best way possible: cooking.

I love the Japanese concept of mottaini: letting nothing go to waste, or, more poetically, “waste not, want not.” There is a lot to admire in this approach to life, especially when it comes to food. When you consider the resources it takes to produce food, it seems absurd that we waste even the smallest bit. Yet we do.
