• For the last decade sisters Zainab and Faatimah Paruk, who are both qualified Chefs, have been making their indelible mark on Durban’s collective palate through their catering company, Chilli Chocolate Chefs (CCC) on Musgrave Road.

    Every meal which has left the CCC premises has been prepared under their precise guidance; and now they are passing on that knowledge to their followers through a luxurious 240-page book simply entitled ‘Bringing It Home’.

    The Chilli Chocolate Chefs culinary signature reflects Zainab and Faatimah’s commitment to exceptional quality. In August 2022, their lovingly curated recipes were committed to print in their fourth recipe book which is intended to inspire as much as it is to delight. Each recipe is unique, presented with an earthy panache and a contemporary twist.

    Each of the easy-to-follow recipes in ‘Bringing it Home’ – which are suited to any occasion and any skill level from novice to expert – have been created using ingredients which are readily available so there won’t be any hard-to-find obscure ingredient searches. And, in keeping with the visual element of eating, each of the more than 85 recipes is accompanied by a photograph taking the guesswork out of plating.
