A South African burnt Gordan Ramsey’s mouth with some  “skop and donder” spice and it’s actually fantastic to watch.


KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa (03 January 2021) – Gordan Ramsey was never ready for some “skop and donder” South African spice!

In the National Geographic series Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, chef Ramsay journeys to some of the most incredible and remote locations on Earth in search of culinary inspiration, epic adventures, and cultural experiences he will never forget.

And in season 2, episode 2, Ramsey adventures to KwaZulu-Natal to learn how the simplicity of South African cuisine is inspired from a wealth of cultures, which is where he learnt that our “skop and donder” South African spice will give you a proper kick.

The metaphorical mixing pot of influences, due to the country’s political and colonized past, includes Zulu warriors, Dutch settlers, British colonists, and Indian labourers. KZN has the largest population of Indians outside of India, and the strong ties that these South Africans have to their traditional Indian roots have brought a diverse addition to the regional cuisine.

And it’s our incredible Indian influence that has his mouth on fire – perhaps karma for all the foul language he explicitly uses.
