In 2020, Chef Nti launched ‘Street food in Africa’a TV show that took viewers on a journey through South Africa, from its cities to townships, to discover what defines South African culinary culture.
In 2018, she opened Taste Kitchen by Chef Nti, a restaurant located in the heart of Maboneng, Johannesburg. The restaurant offered an exclusive African experience through food, music and tourism, but she closed it in 2020.
“It was useless anymore,” she said.
“Maboneng was full of culture and entering the compound was an experience in itself, but that changed and also due to Covid-19 I needed a fresh start.”
She still hopes to open a restaurant.
“I’m all about the food and providing an experience for my guests. My kitchen is clean and I like to taste the flavors of everything I eat and retain the flavors of my food while being hearty and giving you a feeling of nostalgia.
