Owner of Tapi Tapi Desserts, Tapiwa Guzha explains his passion for ice-cream and African culture and how he brought them together.

Dr Tapiwa Guzha, owner of Tapi Tapi Desserts, originally hails from Zimbabwe. He has Ph.D.in molecular biologist and is currently doing a post-doctoral fellowship at Stellenbosch.

He has created a range of ice-cream that celebrates African flavours and African stories.

I always had a sweet tooth and growing up loved to help my grandmother with baking.

Dr Tapiwa Guzha, Owner - Tapi Tapi Desserts

He says that moved into ice-cream as an adult and he decided to bring together his passion for desserts with his love for African culture and stories.

His unusual flavours using impepho, millet, blackjack and other flavours indigenous to African cooking imbue his ice-cream with a very different taste profile.

The name Tapi Tapi is a play on his name - but in Shona, it also means yum yum for sweet things.
