“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.
Recently they all got together at the fabulous Fancourt Estate to spend some quality time together and this happened…
“They say time cost money, but the time you spend with your children is priceless.”
“I love you all; I love you more than life itself, but you’re all freaking mad.”
“What?! you want me to kiss my sister on the head?!”
“Yuck!” he says. Brothers never change, no matter how old they get.
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.
“This is part of what a family is about, not just love. It’s knowing that your family will be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work.”
