Your South African Kitchen Away from Home

Life is meant to be lived; cherish the exciting moments, and relish in those all too brief moments of relaxation. I am here to live my own life, and live it passionately. NaNiDa – Your South African Kitchen Away from Home, serves as a vessel to project my passions, and clue in my loyal readers as to what inspires me in this crazy world. So, sit back, relax, and read on.

For years, I have served as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. In 2012, I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I started writing about my passions, my thoughts, and about my journey in creating the products I have now. I founded NaNiDa – Your South African Kitchen away from home, with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and it has been a wild success ever since.
