The Secret


The secret is out of the bag. The Chellzkitchen and Mascom MySurf collaboration is officially happening. This will be a six part online mini-series with six episodes that will air over the next six months across all Mascom and Chellzkitchen social media platforms.

If you would like to enjoy some uninterrupted cooking lessons with us hosting some of your favourite personalities every month, ensure that you subscribe to Mascom MySurf and enjoy some delicious entertainment.

All while learning one or two new dishes, tips and tricks to use in your very own kitchen to switch up your regular meals and share with friends and family.

Our first episode featured the acclaimed fashion guru Mothusi Lesolle of iZaura Creations. From various catwalks in BW, Africa, New York to Buckingham Palace, the Dress in the store Window at a famous Macy’s to Chellzkitchen.

We had a moment as we reminisced about a time I had the privilege of donning one of his creations for my Patlo/Magadi in 2013 and it was such a pleasant experience. A modern design with the ‘pattern’ I had picked for my paka. Like any monyadi should; I felt like a Queen! Without a doubt, iZaura Creations is a world renowned brand and Design Concepts Couture force to be reckoned with and has proven capability to make anyone’s dream day a very memorable event in a memorable ensemble.

No one could have expected anything less from Mothusi. If ‘Bring it!’ was a person, it’s him. Dressed to the nines he razzle and dazzled in the kitchen. Making our first official episode nothing short of incredible.

We cannot wait to host more of your favourites, and please inbox our page any questions you would like us to ask them during the cooking sessions. Like and follow our Facebook page Chellzkitchen to catch all the episodes.

Without giving away too much, and giving you the opportunity to watch the episode, I will share only one recipe out of the various element of our meal to entice you. We made a Pear Bellini with Chateau Del Rei, a simple cocktail, for mains Flat Bread, Koftas with Lamb Mince, Nutriday Plain Yogurt Dip, Salsa and for a delicious stove top dessert we made a Delta Fresh Milk Tart Pudding. This spread used minimal ingredients, is light, fresh and fit for anytime of the day. We served our meal with a Robertsons Wine (Merlot) because red wine pairs well with red meat. While I have your attention on pairings, Chellzkitchen will be hosting a Class with a Wine Pairing Experience by a professional very soon.

We will cook the foods that pair well with the wines, and as is the norm at Chellzkitchen, we will eat, laugh, sip and have endless conversations. Keep your eyes on the Chellzkitchen page. Bona Pattern!!



500 g Lamb Mince

2 tsp Ground cumin

2 tsp Ground coriander

1 tsp Cinnamon

2 tsp Garlic Powder

2 tbsp Fresh mint Salt and freshly ground black pepper’


Mix the kofta ingredients together in a bowl using clean hands. Either form into 8 balls, burger shapes, or shape on to metal or wooden skewers. When you’re ready to cook, heat your barbecue, grill or griddle pan until smoking hot. Cook the koftas on each side for about 5 minutes, or until browned all over.

The Fight Crime Gaborone Facebook page is always filled with sad complaints of hard working Batswana who were robbed at knife point at some traffic lights or at their home gates when trying to get inside.These thugs have no mercy; they do not just threaten victims, they are always ready to use knives, and sadly, they damage car windows. While this happens at different traffic lights, there are those where such incidents happen more frequently...
