In the food feature, author of Eat-Ting Anna Trapido chats to #WeekendBreakfast host Phemelo Motene about Winnie Mandela’s relationship and journey with food.
Trapido says that Winnie’s mother was a home economics teacher and when you spoke to her about food, she still had that kind of grounding.
When Madiba was in jail and they were poor, she had two small children and she was a woman who knew how to make her own soap, who knew how to preserve the peaches on the tree.— Anna Trapido, author of Eat-Ting
Both Nelson and Winnie Mandela were big gardeners and in a lot of ways their childhood was very similar says Trapido. She adds that Winnie spent a lot of time attempting to be the boy that her parents wished she was.
She forged with herd boys and she knew how to set traps for birds and was a really fierce stick fighter.— Anna Trapido, author of Eat-Ting
Trapido says that Winnie knew how to grow vegetables and that’s something she use to do a lot with her father as a small child.
