Justine Drake will show you how to make quick and simple meals.

Your Tuesdays are going to get a whole lot warmer with Justine Drake back into your kitchen, blitzing, blending and basting up a storm in the latest season of Just Cooking in association with Fresh Living magazine.

As editor of Pick n Pay’s Fresh Living magazine, Justine has become an expert at creating delicious, nutritious everyday dishes for the time- and cash-strapped cook; and this continues to be the show’s focus.

This season Justine spices things up by inviting some of SA’s celebrity foodies and personalities to join her.

For starters, you can look forward to learning from the king of the coals himself, Jan Braai, and award-winning food editor and author, Dora Sitole, another highlight.

Also in the mix are cook-outs shot on location, braai masterclasses, and easy-to-make (and shop for) recipes. Says Justine: “Like most working moms, I don’t have hours to shop and prepare the evening meal, nor do I have a limitless budget, so modern, fresh food that’s simple and quick to whip up is the order of the day.”

So, set that timer, shake out your apron and get ready for your weekly date. Just Cooking airs on Tuesdays at 8.30pm on SABC3 with a repeat of the show on Saturdays at noon.
