Somizi’s Cookbook Sits Comfortably At The Top Of The CNA Food & Beverge Book Chart

What started out as a hobby has blossomed into a nostalgic trip down culinary memory lane through ‘Dinner at Somizi’s – I Am Not A Chef’, a cookbook inspired by Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung’s, amongst other things, his family’s cooking.

Somizi has been showcasing his culinary skills on his social media pages for a number of years and the visual display has graduated into a television show produced during South Africa’s first Lockdown in 2020. The cooking show titled ‘Dinner at Somizi’s’ which premiered around 10 July 2020 on DStv’s 1Magic enjoyed great success trending almost every week of TX. The show sees Somizi cooking for his celebrity guests as they indulge in interesting topics and is currently available on Showmax.

Following the success of the tv show, and due to popular demand, Somizi’s cookbook became highly anticipated. It comes as no surprise that Mzansi showed the book incredible love by nearly breaking the internet and knocking the pre-sales orders out of the park.

As of 02 January 2021, Dinner at Somizi’s – I Am Not A Chef has been reported as the highest selling book in the food and drink category 29 November 2020 – 02 January 2021 in South Africa according to CNA’s audited report. The book has beaten Somizi’s culinary role model, Jamie Oliver to the number one position.

“When putting this cookbook together I really wanted to create something truly authentic and special for my fans. I wanted to show South Africans how easy it is to add “pizzazz” to everyday meals” says Somizi.

The book is available now at CNA stores around the country.
