MasterChef Benny Masekwameng is turning into quite a cover model…! He also appeared on the 5 May 2013 cover of iMagazine (City Press), and now he’s the 2nd South African gracing the cover of the South African version of Good Housekeeping and Goeie Huishouding…
If you look through all the Good Housekeeping covers in my archive, you’ll only notice one ‘familiar’ face from the previous issues; Chef Reuben Riffel with his family. This is because the previous December 2012 cover was the 1st time they placed a South African personality on their covers.
So this makes Chef Benny the 2nd.
You can read the full press release about their December issue, and happy family, below;
A very merry Christmas with Good Housekeeping
Exclusive interview, recipes and cooking demonstration with MasterChef SA judge and Tsogo Sun celebrity chef Benny Masekwameng
Good Housekeeping has Christmas covered this year with a bumper December issue featuring SA’s favourite MasterChef judge, Benny Masekwameng. In an exclusive interview with Good Housekeeping, the chef with the megawatt smile shares his uniquely South African story of culinary success, which has its roots in his family home in Alexandra, Johanesburg, where he grew up helping his mother prepare meals to sell in the neighbourhood.
Benny – who appears on the cover of Good Housekeeping alongside his wife Purity and their daughter Dimakatso – also shares recipes for his family’s favourite festive dishes and will be hosting a Good Housekeeping reader Christmas lunch, where he will be giving a cooking demonstration.
‘We are so delighted to have Benny and his beautiful family on our December cover. I know readers will be inspired, not only by his simple and delicious recipes, but also by his story of success,’ says Sally Emery, editor of Good Housekeepingand Goeie Huishouding ‘Benny has won the South African public’s hearts with his warmth and humility – he is the perfect choice to carry on our magazine’s tradition of spotlighting a well-loved South African chef in our Christmas issue.’
