I watch a ton of cooking shows and I generally observe a hole for what I would bring [to the table] that has never been finished.

What sort of food will you cook?

I’ll be cooking whatever I can cook. I won’t cook things that I’ve done previously. In spite of the fact that I’m exceptionally trial and I like to attempt new things, I attempt new things when I’m certain that they’ll come out incredible.

I’m inventive so I am going to cook for the most part the nourishments that I grew up eating yet with a turn and, likewise, I can bear to add whatever [ingredients] I need to include.

What visitors would we be able to anticipate seeing on the show?

The list if people to attend is intriguing. It’s kin that I have individual associations with — [I’m not simply highlighting them] on the grounds that they are popular.

It is the “creamiest” of the yield — there’s everybody from Siya Kolisi to Zozibini Tunzi to Casper Nyovest to Lerato Kganyago — however they are my companions, so [it won’t resemble watching] a meeting, [it’ll resemble watching me have] a discussion with my visitors.

What’s your preferred food to eat?

Anything that is soul food. Healthy sheep shanks, chicken feet, garbage, samp — anything that is cooked with affection.

How do your movements impact your cooking aptitudes and interests?

They impact my cooking in a major manner in that I get back home and [make the dishes I’ve tasted] my own specific manner, particularly the mixed drinks. I make mixed drinks on the show also and they are affected by the beverages that I appreciate abroad.

The manner in which I love to flavor my food is affected by my movements as well — from making risotto to how I make my samp.

Indeed, my better half appreciates cooking — despite the fact that he doesn’t cook as much [as I do]. He appreciates cooking whatever future put in the broiler for a very long time, similar to sheep knuckles or meat stew.

What is your reaction to analysis that has been leveled Dinner at Somizi’s, including the way that you are certifiably not a prepared gourmet specialist?

Individuals reserve the option to communicate their own assessments. Be that as it may, I’m not here to please individuals or diminish my light since it’s excessively splendid for another person.

I am utilized to individuals reprimanding me before they even observe what I am going to convey. For instance, when I was first declared as an adjudicator on Idols SA, individuals were set up to brawl, saying I think nothing about music and blast — I can do Idols.

What’s more, when I discharged a book, individuals were stating, yet what do I think about composing a book? Furthermore, it turned into the best journal in SA.

My unscripted TV drama is an honor winning show and it was condemned in the first place.

So I’m utilized to it and [I trust you should] judge me after you see what I convey — not previously. [Critics] likewise do not understand what the organization of the show is, so I’m going to let them move on the floor until they see what it is and afterward they will comprehend that it must be Somizi that does this show.

• Dinner at Somizi’s will debut on July 10 at 7pm on DStv 1 Magic (channel 103).
