Betty’s Kitchen was partly created to honour Bettina Mnyandu, a woman of great faith, compassion, patience and grace. Betty has been our housekeeper for 23 years, the latter 17 years being spent in a guesthouse. She is a chef of note, competent, stylish & with an impeccable sense of taste. Curries, cakes & cookies- Betty has no limits. Anyone who has eaten at Hedge House can testify to this.
A remarkable woman in every way- thank you Betty, we appreciate you!
For these reasons this food blog as well as the kitchen at Hedge House have been affectionately named after Betty. Not all recipes will be her tried and tested favourites but hopefully this blog will be a contribution from all the Hedge House food lovers! Many a time, however, Betty is tweaking the flavours with her perceptive palate to make the outcome just right!
