In your own lounge: 15h00, Sunday, 26 July 2020
Join cookbook duo Prim Reddy and Naranj Pather for a virtual Food and Cake celebration from their inspiring cookbook ‘Temptations’ in the comfort of your lounge in aid of StreetSmart SA at 15h00 on Sunday, 26 July 2020.
‘Temptations’ embraces the diverse culinary offerings in cosmopolitan South Africa, spanning cultures and recipes passed down through the generations.
StreetSmart SA is an organisation established 15 years ago, dedicated towards helping vulnerable children rebuild their lives through public donations throughout the Western Cape and Gauteng.
A well-known food and TV personality, Prim Reddy, is a small town girl at heart with a love affair with food. She shot to fame on South African television in a career that spanned 16 years. From television celebrity to a complete re-invention within the culinary world, Reddy created ‘The Indian Chapter Restaurant with Prim Reddy’ which is a firm favourite on the acclaimed Cape Town food map. Her love for food crosses cultural boundaries and her ability to tell stories and keep people entertained sparked an interest in writing a book.
“I wanted to give the book an edge, a lifestyle offering, wine pairing and a pure celebration of everything that can be celebrated with taste,” says Reddy, who invited Naranj Pather to add her expertise to the mix.
“These are recipes from our travels, dishes we have experienced and added flair of our own. Quick easy meals that make a home chef feel like a million bucks with that extra time to put on some lipstick, put your feet up and have that well-deserved glass of wine,” says Pather.
Tickets for the virtual event are available at donations of R5 to R50 and can be obtained via Quicket at https://www.quicket.co.za/events/108874-temptations-a-virtual-celebration-of-food-cake/#/ Booking is essential as space is limited.
StreetSmart SA is a registered Public Benefit Organisation as well as a Non-Profit Organisation and funds are primarily raised by participating restaurants, accommodation establishments, and wine tasting centres, adding a voluntary R5 donation to the bill. Every cent raised in this way goes towards social and educational upliftment projects for street children. The organisation was set up by a group of concerned Capetonians under the patronage of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and comprises resourceful board members representing business and the hospitality and tourism industries. Similar StreetSmart organisations also run independently throughout the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Vancouver and the Netherlands.
