What began as a hobby has blossomed into a nostalgic trip down culinary memory lane through Dinner at Somizi’s – I’m Not A Chef, a cookbook inspired by Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung’s, amongst other things, his family’s cooking.

Somizi has been showcasing his culinary skills on his social media pages for a variety of years and therefore the visual display has graduated into a television program produced during South Africa’s first Lockdown in 2020.

The cooking show titled ‘Dinner at Somizi’s,’ which premiered around 10 July 2020 on DStv’s 1Magic enjoyed great success trending almost hebdomadally. The show sees Somizi cooking for his celebrity guests as they enjoy interesting topics and is currently available on Showmax.

Following the success of the television program, and thanks to popular demand, Somizi’s cookbook became highly anticipated. It comes as no surprise that Mzansi showed the book, incredible love, by nearly breaking the web and knocking the pre-sales orders out of the park.

As of 02 January 2021, Dinner at Somizi’s – I’m Not A Chef has been reported because of the highest-selling book within the food and drink category 29 November 2020 – 02 January 2021 in South Africa consistent with CNA’s audited report. The book has beaten Somizi’s culinary model, Jamie Oliver to the amount one position.

“When putting this cookbook together I actually wanted to make something truly authentic and special for my fans. I wanted to point out to South Africans how easy it’s to feature “pizzazz” to everyday meals,” says Somizi.

Somizi’s reality show is currently surrounded by controversy as Hastings Moeng isn’t backing down without a fight against Somizi Mhlongo, Barleader TV & Multichoice. Hastings served the three parties with a summons on December 30 2019 for allegedly stealing his idea for Dinner At Somizi’s.

The news was revealed by Author Eusebius McKaiser on Twitter who wrote, “Somizi Mhlongo, Barleader TV & Multichoice have had summons served today on behalf of Hastings Moeng seeking “reasonable compensation” plus “15% interest” because of the alleged originator of the concept Dinner With Somizi.”

“Moeng wants the court to declare his verbal contract as valid & binding (supported by email evidence that it exists); wants the court to declare the concept underpinning Somizi’s show as Moeng’s brainchild & wants the court to direct “reasonable compensation” to tend to Moeng plus rights to contract future seasons etc.”

Congratulations Somgaga.
