It is easy to see how our cover star Benny Masekwameng managed to win over a whole army of armchair chefs’ hearts as a judge on the hit TV show MasterChef South Africa.
Benny’s warmth and humility were evident throughout the days Good Housekeeping spent with him, his wife, Purity, and their cutie-pie daughter, Dimakatso, shooting candid family portraits, tasting Benny’s Christmas dishes and chatting over glasses of punch. Read Benny and Purity’s inspir- ing story on page 100, then start planning your Christmas feast using Benny’s simple and delicious recipes.
