Watching Marianne eat Bobotie Balls while dressed as a cardboard robot is the funniest thing you will see today.


Cape Town, South Africa – Suzelle DIY and UCOOK – arguably two of the brightest ideas originating from South Africa – have announced an exciting collaboration, making dinner time easy, creative and delicious.

During the month of May, UCOOK will proudly feature a line-up of Suzelle DIY recipes as part of their weekly dinner-kit delivery service.

“The harmony between UCOOK and Suzelle is perfect,” says Christopher Verster-Cohen, co-founder at UCOOK. “Suzelle’s DIY approach brings South Africans convenient, easy hacks for everything – and our mission is to bring simple and delicious dinners to tables around the country.”  

DIY sensation Suzelle released her first cookbook – Recipes by SuzelleDIY – in 2018, packed full of Suzelle favourites and including everything from Fancy Papterts to Baklava Braai Pies and Popcorn Lollies.

Speaking of the UCOOK collaboration, Suzelle DIY says, “A lot of people ask me: ‘Suzelle, how do I cook the perfect dinner every night?’ The secret is simple: don’t overcomplicate it! I love using UCOOK, and they’re here to make these things simple – it’s a DIY dinner. Delivered to you! There’s it!”

Ari Kruger and Julia Anastasopoulos, the creative duo behind Suzelle DIY, insist that UCOOK has breathed new life into their dinner time and changed the way they think about meals.

UCOOK will feature some of Suzelle’s favourite recipes, including Bobotie Balls, Hake Flake Bake, Ostrich and Biltong Butter, Halloumi Burgers, Lamb & Corn Salsa, and more, that fans will be able to order and cook at home from ethically and locally sourced seasonal ingredients from the best suppliers in the country.

Suzelle will be showing her fans how to upcycle your UCOOK box in fun and creative ways. UCOOK has worked tirelessly to ensure the recyclability of their recognisable brown insulated boxes – and Suzelle has some clever tips and tricks up her to sleeve to bring this to life.

“That’s right; we’re going to cook delicious dishes and then we’re going to create beautiful things. It’s all happening here,” says Suzelle. 

UCOOK offers 12 recipe options per week and delivers to home or office addresses, every Monday. Whether you’re craving meals for one, or are looking for fun, healthy and easy family dinner solutions, UCOOK has a plan made just for you. Visit for more.
