Getting into the food industry isn’t an easy one, and food entrepreneur Neo Nontso has earned her stripes. The influencer has over 300 000 followers on her Dine with Neo account, a brand that’s set to expand into various new projects. Now, the vibrant personality and self-taught cook is launching her own cookbook, My Insta Feast, this October.

Hailing from the Eastern Cape, Neo began her journey in 2016, sharing her tips, tricks and recipes with an eager audience. Since then, the passionate cook has grown her platform from strength to strength. Her brand identity Dine with Neo has seen her branch out into the spice industry and working to create and refine her own food industry-related app.

My Insta Feast is set to be a treasure trove of recipe ideas, featuring Neo’s most requested dishes, from corn dogs to oxtail. If you take a glance at her Instagram page, you’ll see grilled to perfection braai meat, freshly fried amagwinya and classic Spanish paella. You can dive into the glossy beef noodles, slow-cooked oxtail or learn more about how she seasons her prawns. There’s a little something for everyone (and all skill levels!)

Her cookbook is set to share her top grocery list items, a must for anyone trying to improve their cooking skills with not too much fuss. It’s a good way to learn more about what pantry staples are ideal for some delicious South African dishes and sides.

My Insta Feast is currently available for pre-order and is set to launch in October, in-store and on various online retailers.
