Ouma means grandmother

Unfortunately we are losing our heritage. Quick meals are the order of the day.  Take outs are plentiful. There is no barakah(blessing) in the food we eat today. Many have forgotten how to cook like our ouma(grandmother) cooked. Many have lost recipes from even their own mothers.  We are now on a mission to preserve these recipes before they are lost forever. Each person from different regions, different cities, different countries and different villages have their own take on recipes. Weekly we will place a request for a specific dish. Ask you mother or grandmother or an elder in the family  to share with us their recipe on how they make this specific dish. Everyone makes it differently.

We will than consolidate everything. If you are making the specific recipe of the week. Please email us your full recipe with proper measurements, ingredients and method plus a picture. We will upload the pictures on facebook. Monthly we will choose a winner with most likes to win a Choria lucky packet worth R150. t&c’s apply..
Check out facebook weekly for the Cooking Culture Challenge – send us your complete recipe and pic to to enter the competition.

Our aim is to share with each other our different cooking cultures and more preserve this knowledge that is being lost.
