Soweto-born chef Lesego Semenya, well known as LesDaChef, shares his recipe for oxtail stew.
Semenya offers township cuisine with a twist in his debut cookbook Dijo: My Food, My Journey.
Every dish featured in Dijo has a story that speaks of passion and nostalgia. Sharing both the recipes and their history will give foodies a way of getting to know Semenya’s food background, which comes from his upbringing in Soweto, as well as the fine-dining techniques he learned at chef school – and a few hot chef secrets, too.
‘Nothing more heartwarming and nostalgic than a good hearty oxtail stew,’ he says.
‘I have various recipes for it, this is my simple version of making it without too much fuss and stress.’
