Cephus showed me his best-selling dish of prawn risotto https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_-_m3xDeqU&feature=youtu.be
at the magnificent Latitude 13 hotel in the capital of Malawi www.latitudehotels.com.
We were cooking under a huge tree alongside a swimming pool of excited children.
Fish from Lake Malawi is very popular everywhere in the country but, being otherwise land-locked, seafood such as prawns have to be imported from the African coast.
It was a great dish but, even better, was Cephus’s insight into the progress that is underway in Malawi, rightly called the “Warm heart of Africa”.
Communications are improving with the internet and mobile phones. Construction of new roads and buildings are playing their part in increasing business and the economy of the country. Life for everyone is easier and getting better – people are happier.
Blind people are benefiting too with Government support: learning to read and write; knitting clothes and moving towards work.
With sous chef Emily producing the de-veined prawns, our delicious dish reached its sumptuous conclusion with the final drizzle of garlic and butter. Perfection in the warm sun alongside the fun in the pool.
