Item 13: An African Food Podcast


A podcast on all things African food! Every other week, we delve into the world of African food chefs, curators and bloggers. Interviews with African food entrepreneurs cover new African cuisine, customer experiences, the role of social media in promoting African food and much, much more.

This week’s guest is Zimbabwean-born Dr. Tapiwa Guzha. Founder of Tapi Tapi, producing handcrafted ice cream, inspired by the unique flavors of African ingredients.

Based in Cape Town, Tapiwa’s work is focused on rehabilitation of the collective African esteem around cultural identity, within and beyond food.

“In part, Tapi Tapi is focused on rehabilitating the self-esteem of people from the continent about our food practices, as well as our culture and beliefs. I use food because it’s universal, people need to eat. So it’s a nice tool to get people to listen.”
