Getting to know twin foodies Lebo & Tebo Ndala

 

Foodies Lebo and Tebo Ndala from @withlovefromthetwins are the faces and recipes behind South African favourite, Laager Rooibos. We spent some time getting to know Lebo and Tebo better and finding out more about their love of cooking and how they got into the foodie industry.
Q: What made you pursue a career in the food industry?
A: We were always happiest in the kitchen and loved to cook growing up. When we discovered we could do it for a living, we didn’t think twice about pursuing it as a career
Q: What is your earliest food memory?
A: We have fond memories of making scones with our mom in the kitchen giggling together and kneading out the dough
Q: Tell us about any family food traditions that you value
A: Definitely our 7 colour Sunday lunches! We love to cook as a family on Sundays and experiment with a variety of foods. This is a tradition we will definitely pass down to our children one day
Q: What are your favourite family recipes?
A: When it comes to the best meal we love eating – nothing beats our grandmother’s TING (sour porridge). Our mom’s chakalaka recipe is one of our favourites too
Q: Who is your favourite food celebrity?
A: We love Gordon Ramsay – we think he is a genius in the kitchen and we would love to meet him one day
Q: When it comes to being a twin, do you think and act the same way?
A: Having “twin-telepathy” gives us an advantage in the kitchen as we know what each other is thinking most of the time. We share the same taste in food and fashion too.
Q: What type of food do you prefer, savoury or sweet?
A: Definitely sweet as we love to bake. Also as avid tea drinkers, home-made sweet bakes are a big part of our tea drinking tradition
Q: Do you consider yourselves die hard tea drinkers?
A: We grew up drinking tea from a young age so it has become a part of who we are. As tea lovers we were excited to get involved with Laager Rooibos.
Q: How do you drink your tea?
A: We drink it plain, no milk, no sugar. It tastes perfect just as it is
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: We want to create employment for young people like us in the industry and we dream of opening our own studio with a tea shop. Our ambition is to become an international brand name as well as best-selling cook book authors – watch this space

Plus we really love drinking Laager Rooibos!” Commenting on the endorsement, Joekels Marketing Manager Candice Sessions says, “As a brand we believe in partnering with people who share our vision of putting people first and Lebo and Tebo really do embody the spirit of family, giving, and togetherness. They are the perfect fit for our brand as they live our core proposition and are amazing at what they do.” Look out for their delicious Laager Rooibos recipes and other exciting developments on @withlovefromthetwins, as well as the With love from the Twins and Laager Rooibos facebook pages.
