This week on #TheInsiderSA join The Lazy Makoti as she celebrates a truly #WooliesChristmas with a little help from Woolworths! 

This one’s for all you festive chefs, menu planners and party starters. A guide to celebrating a truly #WooliesChristmas with The Lazy Makoti – trained chef and best-selling cookbook author, who lives to celebrate unique South African food culture and heritage.

When Mogau Seshoene aka The Lazy Makoti, invited us to join her and a special group of her friends, Sobantu Nqayi, Amron Ilza Siebritz and Keletso Motau for Christmas feast we jumped at the chance to find out what her festive menu would be.

Mogau has a lot to celebrate this year but she is especially proud that this is the season she has a new food and homeware collaboration range with Woolworths. Shop her range here

Not only has Woolworths collaborated with Mogau but a range of the best local talent to offer a perfect present for everyone on your list.

Her Woolies festive menu was as sensational as expected with the perfect balance between traditional favourites and local flavours with a twist!
