Memories of weekends when a delightful aroma would creep out of the kitchen and fill the home, of Gogo making the creamiest isitambu to go along with her signature stew, are hard to forget. The pot, steaming away with delicious meat or vegetable stew, was always the perfect match for the mouth-watering, full-of-flavour samp, and would come together to make the most satisfying meal. Recreating those memories in the kitchen by trying to make isitambu - also known as samp - that tastes just the way Gogo would make it, though, is no easy task.
Especially when you feel like you need your granny’s secret ingredient to give your samp ‘that thing’ so that it has a rich flavour. Well, fortunately for you, Knorrox knows the secret ingredient that has been responsible for making the flavourful dishes you think about to this day. Read on as we unpack the secret ingredient to making the most delicious samp dishes.
