Visitors to Mpophomeni are often surprised by the abundance of great produce in an unexpected place, the delicious food we serve and the obvious pleasure this gives us. A recipe book celebrating our fresh garden produce, the people with their hands in the soil, and the creativity of our customers, means we can spread the happiness.
In Mpophomeni, food is grown from the heart, meals are meant to be shared and stories are told with pride. In this book, we share our delight in seasonal produce with you. Food that celebrates the day, our families and the environment too. Naturally, this food is delicious.
