African cuisine made with a twist on Come Dine With Me


In episode 4, we saw Tigere aka Tigs a contestant from Joburg North, entice his guest by cooking a West African dish called Jollof rice (a well-known cuisine stirring up conversation in many parts of Africa as to which country cooks it better) and in last week’s episode 8 , we saw Tshepo, an event planner from Joburg South cook Bohobe, with a twist – another home –grown African meal,  who would have thought?

With temperatures currently dropping in most parts of the country, why not try this recipe to warm you and your family up.

Here's how to spice up the popular jollof rice 


1kg fish 

5ml coriander 

50ml lime

5ml chillies 

500g rice

3 tomatoes 

1 onion 

3 pepppers

250g string beans 


Marinate fish in coriander, lime and chilli and pan fry in olive oil. 

Cook rice and add to tomato, onion, and pepper relish.

Cook green beans and tie with spring onion. 

Serve and enjoy
