Family photoshoot at Fancourt George

Indi’s Tribe | Family Photoshoot | Fancourt George

“We believed in our grandmother’s cooking more fervently than we believed in God.”
― Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals

Indira is the grand matriarch of this beautiful family. As a young woman she often had her nose in a book and no interest whatsoever in spending time with her Mother in the kitchen. Her Father was always asking how on earth she was ever going to find a husband if she couldn’t cook for goodness sake? Indi just laughed and shrugged her shoulders.

He needn’t have worried, she found a husband no problem at all, had 2 beautiful daughters, opened a successful Sari shop in Durban and she did eventually learn to cook, in fact, to cook very well indeed. Some of her recipes are so delicious that her family have demanded that she write a cook book, so at the ripe old age of 78 Indi is putting together a cookbook which will be a wonderful legacy for her beloved Tribe.

Indi’s family began to expand as soon as her children got married and they had children of their own and some of the children had children and before long she had a Tribe.

There is ALWAYS one cheeky outspoken smarty-pants in every group, that was this guy. You can just see naughtiness written all over his face.

It never ceases to amaze me how different siblings can be, this little guy is sweet and gentle and just wants to please.

This crazy fella with the topknot is like a little tornado, never still, always on the go and is well practiced in the art of pleasing himself.
