Fatima Sydow is a social chef. A social chef in that she grew her fanbase by starting a Facebook page that now has almost half a million followers.
She is the go to person for Cape Malay Cooking.
She credits her mom for teaching her the secrets and we can be grateful that 9-year-old Fatima responded to the invitation to help prepare the food.
I remember like it was yesterday, the very first time mom called me to come and help her in the kitchen, I was only 9 years old, with scruffy, wavy hair and big brown eyes, I would stop with whatever I was doing at that moment and run bare feet in a sprint and in the kitchen I will be.Fatima Sydow on her first memory of learning to cook
