Lazy Makoti says she is thrilled to be part of the exciting initiative to ignite the creativity of South African kitchens everywhere.

“Amarula has long been a part of our proud heritage and finally we are putting together a cookbook to celebrate that. I am especially excited to see consumers experimenting with making delicious savoury dishes – that for me will be tops- finding creative ways to add Amarula in unexpected ways and I know South Africans are up for the challenge. Best of all – these recipes will end up in this incredible cookbook. I can’t wait to taste the talent!”

J-Something says “The great thing I have found about cooking is that there is no real right or wrong. I actually believe it’s better understood as trial and error. When I started cooking with Amarula and not just enjoying it over some ice, what made it really come alive was when I started to see it for what it is, a cream liqueur. Cooking with alcohol has many benefits and so does cream, so when I started to apply these ideas to savoury dishes, I really started to taste the unique dishes and delicious things that come out of my kitchen.”

“This book is not just a book to me. It’s a celebration of a drink that is part of our culture and a tribute to a fruit grown on our soil. Have fun, it’s not that serious, just cook!”
