Defy South Africa has been a proud sponsor of renowned cooking show ‘Sarah Graham’s Food Safari’ since its inception in 2015. The show takes viewers on a trip through Africa, with its many indigenous flavour experiences, and Defy SA was thrilled when it was signed on for a second season, which began airing earlier this month.
The aim of Sarah Graham’s Food Safari is to explore some of the continent’s most interesting and exciting dishes, through the eyes of well-known food writer and cook, Sarah Graham. At the same time, viewers have the opportunity to experience some of Southern Africa’s most beautiful places, with the new season set against epic African backdrops like Mozambique and the Kruger Park region.
As a truly South African company, Defy SA looks forward to playing a part in taking viewers on a food adventure that travels all the way from the endless beaches and blue seas of Mozambique’s coastline, to the bustling and colourful chaos of Maputo.
“Defy SA is proud to be a part of a show that will also enable viewers to explore some of the most beautiful parts of Mpumalanga, from the bushveld of the Kruger National Park to the breathtaking Blyde River Canyon, and many magical spots in between. Defy SA will be with Sarah every step of the way as she and the viewers experience some of her favourite corners of Southern Africa, feasting and exploring as we go,” says Hakan Kozan, CEO of Defy SA.
“Be sure to watch this season and try out the recipes from the show,” adds Graham, who is also a Defy SA brand ambassador. “I have loved every minute of my cooking adventure, and love sharing it with everyone. I especially love using my Defy appliances, which fit in just as perfectly when cooking in the wild as in my kitchen at home.”
The show has recently completed its production for season two and to celebrate their brand ambassador’s success, sponsors Defy chose to donate a range of appliances from the show to the Orlando Clinic in Soweto.
The clinic is a primary health care facility providing HIV, AIDS and TB-related treatment, care, and support services. It also offers a community-oriented primary health care programme that monitors and proactively works towards the improved health and wellbeing of families in the area.
“At Defy SA, we endeavour to support local talent and local projects like Sarah Graham’s Food Safari, and we love seeing the delicious food created with our appliances. At the same time, we are cognisant of the requirements of many of our in-need communities and as such, we are pleased to be able to assist the Orlando Clinic in its efforts to feed the people in its home-based care services,” concludes Kozan.
Make a note and be sure to watch Sarah Graham’s Food Safari, currently airing on M-Net Channel 101 on Mondays at 6pm.
