DStv Delicious is an annual celebration of music and food in Johannesburg and included a performance from Erykah Badu in 2018. It’s also regularly graced by The Voice SA Coach LIRA. Now the Delicious team has shot a ‘Cooking with the Stars’ insert with her and we’re salivating!
She cooks an unlikely favourite in the video – brussels sprouts. But damn: do they not look er, delicious! Seasoned with garlic powder, soya sauce, parmesan cheese and thyme (from her own organic garden!), LIRA makes a strong case for this maligned veggie, saying, “A lot of people don’t like brussels sprouts because they don’t know how to make them.
During the cook, she also reveals how her parents taught her to “eat food as medicine… [to] make food that will give you life.” She also tells what food means to her, who she’d love at her fantasy table and her favourite cookbook, and reveals that her husband’s cooking once made her cry!
She's very good in the clip – both at cooking and presentation. Does she deserve her own cooking show? We think so!
DStv Delicious returns on 21 and 22 September this year at the Kyalami racetrack – get updates on their website.
PS. The song on this clip is a gorgeous LIRA original:
