This podcast was recorded with a live audience at the launch of Mmule Setati’s Feed My Tribe Cook Book launch in Johannesburg.
Johannesburg-based Mmule Setati is a dynamic and natural entrepreneur who runs her own business and is one of South Africa’s rising food influencer stars on social media. A dedicated wife and mother to two young sons, Mmule says cooking is her love language. This love was sparked by her mother Bebe and grandmother Stella, who taught her that cooking and food is a wonderful bridge to healing. Mmule believes that our relationship with food is intertwined with mental well-being, a philosophy that she lives through her everyday life as well as her sense of adventure, travelling to immerse herself in other cultures and food.
About the book:
From an early age Mmule Setati was aware of her ‘tribe’ – her parents, grandparents and siblings. And as time passed her tribe grew to include friends and extended family; i.e. those she loved, was intensely proud of and wanted to nurture. Inspired and guided by her maternal grandmother, Mmule developed a passion for food and used it as the clearest way to demonstrate the love she felt for her tribe. This set a pattern for her life and led her on a journey of endless adventure. Now as a wife, mother and rising social media tour de force, her tribe is impressive, and she still expresses her love via her kitchen and the meals that emerge from it. Mmule is the first to admit that being a homemaker while running her own business is a challenge, but one she accepts with boundless enthusiasm and creativity.
