Tapiwa Guzha makes ice-cream with 600 flavours in SA

Tapiwa Guzha

Zimbabwe-born Tapiwa Guzha has used his PhD in Molecular Biology to make more than 600 inventive ice cream flavours, ranging from baobab to edible clay and bitter leaf.

According to a recent BBC News report, Guzha who has a ice-cream restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa, said that he wants Africans to be proud of their heritage, hence the creation of these various ice-cream flavours.

Guzha says growing up he ate the fruit and vegetables from his grandmother’s abundant garden. He was surrounded by indigenous produce such as baobab, fennel, monkey orange, and masawu fruit. But at school, other kids mocked his food, he told the website Beautiful News.com.

According to reports, Guzha was inspired to experiment with dry ice to create the frozen treat, while using indigenous African flavours such as edible clay and tamarind. Through TAPI TAPI Desserts, his ice cream bistro in Cape Town, Tapiwa wants Africans to celebrate their heritage.

In a recent interview with Beautiful News.com he said: “It is my hope that by normalising cultural dishes, I can inspire more positive attitudes and esteem in the African people,” Guzha says.

He said that he has always enjoyed creating beauty with my hands. Whether making food, creating physical objects, body art or handwriting I have always appreciated the visual world and what I can contribute to it.

His unique ice-cream treats are also available on food ordering and delivery platform, Uber Eats.

Speaking to BBC News Focus on Africa, Guzha said that “there’s an opportunity to decolonise the foodscape in the city, in the country and indeed on the continent”. African News Agency (ANA)

Far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.

She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek, then she continued her way.

On her way she met a copy. The copy warned the Little Blind Text, that where it came from it would have been rewritten a thousand times and everything that was left from its origin would be the word “and” and the Little Blind Text should turn around and return to its own, safe country. But nothing the copy said could convince her and so it didn’t take long until a few insidious Copy Writers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects again and again.

And if she hasn’t been rewritten, then they are still using her. Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts.
