Defeating the woes of loadshedding with Jenny Morris

In the food feature this week, Pippa served up a double helping on the show with the usual Giggling Gourmet, Jenny Morris and Justin Bonello the Ultimate Braai Master.

We are all affected by load shedding and we sometimes get frustrated not knowing how and what kind of a meal to prepare for our family without electricity. Jenny and Justin spoke about braaing and load shedding gave them a perfect excuse to talk about the art of the braai and how to prepare a perfect meal without the help of electricity.
