Fusion food is the 2020 culinary trend for weddings

It may not be a new concept but fusion food is still rare at occasions like weddings, especially at very traditional celebrations. Head Chef at BON Hotel Waterfront Richards Bay, Nonhlanhla Mabaso, suggests adding a little creative flavour to your dishes while keeping them close to home, such as amasi-marinated Cajun chicken.


This is an African twist on the beloved American Southern-fried chicken traditionally marinated in buttermilk but this shakeup is sure to please guests. Take a look at the amasi-marinated Cajun chicken recipe and two other originals to try out below.
