Ward 50 Bonteheuwel councillor Angus McKenzie described Flori as a stalwart of Bonteheuwel and a hero who would be sorely missed for her amazing heart, giving nature and the amazing dishes she cooked.

"As a community, we are comforted by the fact that they will be serving the heavens with some of the best cuisines. Aunty Flori passing is a huge shock to the community and, in our sadness, we want to thank her family for sharing her, her talents and her love with each and every one of us. Rest in Peace, Aunty Flori," said Mckenzie.

According to the Daily Voice, Schrikker and Kamalie released their first cookbook in March 2016, called Kook Saam Kaaps, and were a firm favourite with the newspaper's recipe column, Cooksisters.
