s a firm favourite amongst Gateway shoppers we had to delve a little further into this topic, as it appears this dramatic looking cake with its ruby red colouring is all the rage these days.

DEENA NAIDOO MasterChef SA’s debut winner, Deena Naidoo could not have imagined the impact his love and passion for great cuisine would bring into the lives of South Africans, after the 45-yearold IT specialist from Durban beat out SueAnn Allen from Cape Town to take the title after a grueling 18 weeks of cooking.
DN: It has been difficult but thanks to my supportive family and work colleagues I am managing the situation pretty well thus far.
In addition to the title, Deena won R8 million in prizes, including R250 000 in cash from Robertson’s, one of the show’s main sponsors, a car from Hyundai and the opportunity to redesign and run the MondoVino restaurant in association with Tsogo Sun management for two years. The restaurant is set to open in November this year.
DN: Pepper and Salt - more often or not that is all the seasoning that you might ever need.
GATEWAY MAG caught up with Deena and chatted about life after MasterChef SA. GM: You’ve been crowned as the inaugural SA MasterChef, but who really is Deena Naidoo? DN: Deena is simply a father to his children, a husband to his wife and a friend to all those who support and continue to support him. He leads and is still trying to lead as normal a life as it is possible, amidst all the hub and activity around him. GM: How has it been for you juggling your personal life and your ‘post-MasterChef’ commitments?
GM: What is the one magic ingredient that you cannot do without in your cupboard? Why and what do you use it in?
GM: What would be your ultimate three course menu that you would share with your hero? DN: Grilled Chorizo and Lemon Calamari Salad • Chicken and Prawn in a fragrant Coconut Cream Sauce with Cumin and Almond Basmati Rice • Cardamom Panna Cotta with Lindt Chocolate and Hazelnut Sauce GM: As a family man, what goes into the Naidoo household’s favourite recipe of choice from dad? DN: Lots of fresh garlic whenever I can. GM: What is your restaurant destination of choice at Gateway? DN: I was invited to Adega to sample their food. I was very satisfied with the quality, taste and presentation of their meals.
GM: You will be running your own restaurant – what is going to be your iconic meal on the menu? DN: I will feature my winning dishes that I prepared on MasterChef. The Butter Chicken will surely be on the menu. GM: What advice could you give fans of the show who may be considering giving it a shot in the future? DN: Pay attention to the basic skills and techniques and don’t be intimidated by them. These skills come with practice so start practicing NOW. Learn some basic recipes - improve and build on them e.g. basic sponge cake, roast chicken, roast leg of lamb etc. You will learn and master your own techniques by preparing these easy dishes, move on from there. Don’t start off with gourmet meals because if you fail to deliver you may not wish to cook again. Read, make notes, watch and learn from all that is available in the form of TV shows, demos etc. Use ideas and make them your own. Put your signature on your attempts and you will discover your own cooking style. Anyone can cook, it’s just that some choose not to!!.

NOT ALL STARS COME FROM HOLLYWOOD PHOTOGRAPHER BYLINE: Denzil Jacobs The recent success of local actors like Sharlto Copely (â€œDistrict Nineâ€?) bears testament to the fact that we have the ability to create international stars right here at home. Much like Australia, South Africa is fast becoming known for producing world class actors, but it takes more than just raw talent to 'make it big' in Tinseltown. Steely determination, ambition and an insatiable work ethic are also essential, and the latest star in the film firmament, Tyrone Keogh, has more than enough of those qualities.
GATEWAY MAG had the opportunity of meeting with Ty and finding out the inside scoop on this star. GM: What made you choose an acting career? TK: I saw my dad on stage when I was a kid and thought "Hey, that's a cool job! He gets to pretend in reality.” it took me years to get there, and I worked behind the camera for ten years before going into acting full time. But I've been in love with it for as long as I can remember. GM: Tell us more about your typical day: TK: My routine is pretty simple. I'm usually up early and on set by 6:30 am. It takes an hour for them to drive us to location, so I read scripts or catch up on social networking. My days on set vary from as little as 2hours up to a full day of +12hours. When I get back to town, it's straight to gym and then home for dinner. I'm not a big party guy, so unless there's an event or occasion, I'm in bed by 10:30pm GM: Tell us about the best part of your work: TK: I love the challenge of playing against my own personality. When I'm faced with a situation or reaction that I struggle to relate to my own experiences, I have the opportunity to create something. The challenge comes in making that creation real, textured and true, as opposed to just a simplified narrative device. GM: How / where do you see yourself / your work in the next 3/5 years? TK: I try to stick to the present, but ideally I'd like to be in a position where I choose the roles I take based on job satisfaction instead of monetary necessity. In all honesty, if I can be a working actor I'd be very grateful. GM: What do you think of today's men's fashion trends? TK: I'm more of a classic dresser, and seldom follow the seasonal trends too strictly. I know what I don't like, for example you'll not find me in bright colours.
GM: Who is your inspiration / role model? TK: I'm inspired by people who overcome their circumstances to achieve greatness, such as our very own Oscar Pistorious, and also by those who use their success to make a significant change and help others, like George Clooney. GM: What is your next project now that The Wild is coming to an end? TK: As I said, I try to live in the present, so I will give The Wild my full focus until the very last scene is in the can. I made a commitment to the project and I'll want to see it through. When it's done and dusted I will find my next challenge and give that my all. GM: You come from an acting family - what vital lessons have they taught you about this industry? TK: Develop a thick skin, learn to take criticism, understand that people won't like you and use that as motivation to be the best you can be. GM: We believe you are a Dermalogica brand ambassador - could you give us your daily skincare routine? TK: Because I'm out in the elements on a daily basis, I use a high SPF day cream on my face, I use a make- up remover after work, followed by a face wash, toner and an oil free night cream. Then I apply eye cream throughout the day as well as the amazing body lotion. Dermalogica is amazing. GM: What does "SA's Sexiest Man" title mean to you and would you use this to your advantage at any point? TK: It's not something I'm comfortable with and I take it with a pound of salt. I'm just a normal guy who works hard and loves his job, all the other stuff is fleeting. Looks fade, and I intend being around for a long time, so I better have more to offer than just my appearance.

MATHA ZONDI, 23
Most of us grab a quick cup of coffee every day but give little thought to the skilled Baristas whose job it is to prepare only the best shot of coffee for us. While skills vary depending on which machines are used, it’s the Baristas who grind the beans, tamp and are satisfied with nothing less than the perfect extraction. We get to meet five of Gateway’s dedicated and passionate Baristas working every day from 7a.m till 9p.m. When I joined Mugg and Bean I also went through that group’s training to get familiar with the menu and how they make coffees. Every Monday a team from Famous Brands visits us and checks things out as well as trains us when there are changes to any of the lattes. What’s your favourite drink to make? It’s a Flat White Cappuccino. I like coffee and this is a good cup of strong coffee.
PHUMLANI “BOMDASS” MKHIZE, 33 How long have you been a Barista? In total I’ve been a Barista for six years and I’ve been with Mugg and Bean for the last four years. Where did you learn or train to be a Barista? My initial training was with another coffee shop group which was opening branches at Gateway and Umhlanga and looking for new Baristas. Training took place in Cape Town and lasted for about three months,
Do you have a special pattern of latte art that you enjoy or are good at? My favourite pattern is a heart. It’s the one I’ve been best at from the very early days and it just comes naturally. How many cups of coffee, on average, do you make in a day? Customers love the cappuccino at Mugg and Bean so on a busy day I can easily make 60 or 70 cups a day! What makes a great cup of coffee? Good froth and a good balance of the Espresso... and a good Barista.
How long have you been a Barista? I’ve only been a Barista with Gloria Jeans for a year. Before that I was a pasta chef at Mimmos. Where did you learn or train to be a Barista? I trained at the Gateway store for almost a week. I got the feel for making coffee quickly and my training was a combination of practical and theory. I was a little nervous when I started but that went away quickly. What’s your favourite drink to make? I like doing cappuccinos. It's quick to make and you need to get the shot tempered right, froth the milk at the right temperature and blend it all together in the cup perfectly. Do you have a special pattern of latte art that you enjoy or are good at? My favourite is the heart because it looks good and you can do it in so many different ways. What makes a great cup of coffee? The right espresso shot for me. You need to make sure if you’re doing foam that you do it right and, when you’re pouring, you need to know what is needed for the different types of coffee you’re making — what needs more foam or less. You also need to keep your Barista kit correctly — your spoon, spatula and two thermometers must be kept in cold water. Being a Barista is special, especially when you get compliments from customers. I'm a Barista for now and I'm enjoying it.
SIYA NXUMALO, 22 How long have you been a Barista? Two years; before that I was a baker for Vida. I’ve always worked for Vida and been involved with coffee. I never ever thought that this would be the job I’d end up doing, but now I really enjoy it. Where did you learn or train to be a Barista? I learnt at the Vida store in Gateway. I spent three months training before I qualified to be a Barista.
ANGEL PANDA, 26 How long have you been a Barista? I’ve been a Barista with Fego for the past four years. I got a lead about the job from a friend and even though I didn’t really know what a Barista was, I was keen to find a job... Now I love what I do. I even tried being a waiter, but it’s making coffee that I love and I’m also proud of the fact that all Fego Barista’s in KZN now come and train with me. It's a great feeling.
What’s your favourite drink to make? Meia de Le Te (espresso and steamed milk). It’s actually an easy and simple drink to make and it’s a great cup of coffee to drink. Do you have a special pattern of latte art that you enjoy or are good at? I haven’t really tried because we don’t do latte patterns at Vida. I have seen them, though, and I like them — maybe I’ll get a chance to learn to make them one day.
Where did you learn or train to be a Barista? I was trained by another Barista at the Pavilion store. I trained for three days and then got to make coffee while she kept an eye on me. It took me a week to really know the menu and I stayed there for three years before coming to Gateway.
What makes a great cup of coffee? I think it’s a good strong cup of coffee, like an espresso. What is the most cups of coffee you’ve made in a day? The most cups of coffee I’ve made is around 300 cups. It’s possible because we don’t make the coffee too complicated, it’s just great coffee. At Christmas it gets even crazier but, it’s fun.
three weeks of combined theory and practical. They taught us all about coffee, what makes the perfect shot and even about handling milk.
What’s your favourite drink to make? I’ve got two — Cappuccino and Cafe Latte. I got my first compliment for a cappuccino and that was great; since then it’s been my favourite.
What’s your favourite drink to make? It is a Latte — it’s the right coffee to do designs on because it’s got lots of milk and less foam, which creates the right base for our art and it just looks better.
Do you have a special pattern of latte art that you enjoy or are good at? My favourite is a leaf, but I can also do a protea flower and a heart. It took me about a year to get good at these and I'm still trying to perfect my heart shape.
Do you have a special pattern of latte art that you enjoy or are good at? My favourite pattern is heart. The other is the Rosetta (leaf). One of my trainers did a dragon spitting fire and I'd be stoked to learn how to do that.
What makes a great cup of coffee? It’s a combination of how you make it. In a cappuccino it’s about the measure and the secret is in the coffee shot and getting that right.
SENZO NOJIYEZA, 28 How long have you been a Barista? Almost three years. I’ve been with Larney's for a year and before that I was a Barista at Woolworths. Where did you learn or train to be a Barista? I trained at the store at the Lucia Mall. It was
What makes a great cup of coffee? It depends on the beans. Then blending and making sure your shot is between 24 and 27 seconds (the volume). That's the base for the perfect coffee.

I know what you are probably thinking, “How can a person be so incredibly perfect?” What’s even scarier is that this godly person staring back at you is actually a born and bred South African, ‘Joburgian’ to be exact! Unfortunately for us he moved to Australia to pursue his music career, came 3rd in the 2006 season Australian Idols and was then signed to well-known recording label SonyBMG. Since then he has had many notable roles in programs such as, Neighbours ( An Australian Soap Opera), and more importantly international programs such as Steven Spielberg’s Terra Nova, playing the role of ‘Reynolds’ and he has been signed into the new season of the ever popular hit show, Glee, playing Rachel Berry’s new love interest at NYADA. One thing that is for sure I think any girl would love to be in Lea Michele’s (Rachel Berry) shoes, I know I certainly would!
Born Karen Lucille Hale, this brunette bombshell is fast becoming the ‘it’ girl on the Hollywood scene. Known for her role as Becca Sommers in Bionic Woman, Rose Baker in Privileged, Sherrie in the horror film Scream 4 and more recently for her leading role as Aria Montgomery in the hit series Pretty Little Liars, Lucy has cemented herself as a brilliant actress and a young celeb to be reckoned with. Like most ‘teen’ sensations these days Lucy is also a singer and believes her music will always be her ‘first love.’ Some of her soundtracks include Kids in America; Run this town; Make you believe and Bless myself (which also makes up part of the soundtrack for the movie, A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a song, where she plays the lead role as ‘Cinderella’.) Lucy is currently dating hunky actor Chris Zylke.

FEATURE GATEWAY CAR REVIEW Photobylines: audipress@motorpics and Heléne Griffiths
BY HELÉNE GRIFFITHS
THE NEW AUDI SPORTBACK There was great excitement in the Griffiths household when I received the Audi A1 as a test car after a ‘dry’ period of my sabbatical due to hubby’s ill health. The happiest chappies were my granddaughters, Georgia and Nella, as they were the first to have the privilege of a spin in the A1. After I sold my newspaper at the end of 2010, I made a ‘car wish list’ to consider, should I have the urge to purchase one. The Audi A1 was one of the ‘top 5’ cars on this list and after this short test period I am convinced enough to move it to the top slot. It is sporty, efficient, practical and most of all a real ‘lady’s car’. Even my youngest son, Roy, commented that the Audi A1 Sportback suits me perfectly. As the newest member to the Audi range, this five-door hatch offers all the innovative qualities of the A1 3-door in a more practical and mature package. Measuring just 3.95 metres in length (identical to that of the A1 3 door) and is only 1.42 metres high - 6mm taller than the three-door version. There is also a vast array of customisation options available for the A1 Sportback.
Customers can choose to customise their cars with a number of body kits. The roof can be painted in a contrasting colour while interesting sticker sets can add interesting dimensions. The test car I had was silver with a black roof and was really stunning. ROAD STANCE The main reason I fell in love with the Audi A1 Sportback is its powerful road stance. The roof arch, the encompassing shoulder line and the sharply sloped C-pillars give it its characteristic silhouette, into which the rear doors are nicely integrated. The front clearly identifies the A1 Sportback as a member of the large Audi family. The upper corners of the single-frame radiator grille are bevelled, and the crossbars appear to float. The large air inlets feature distinctive edges and horizontal bars and the fog lights are located in their outer corners. REAR I have said it on many occasions ......... I am a ‘bum lady’ and the Sportback’s rear ‘does it for me’ and the wrap-around hatch emphasises the width of the A1. The rear hatch is starkly sculptured, forming a spoiler lip above the licence plate.
A black diffuser in the skirt forms the bottom of the rear end. I had the A1 1.4T FSI S line version and just loved the double exhaust pipes and their elegant trims on the left side. To continue with its good rear looks ..... the undivided tail lights are located below the spoiler lip. They have a wedge-shape, similar to that of the headlights and serve as three-dimensional design elements. Two chrome trims lend the brake lights that are amplified with reflectors, a ring-shaped appearance. The rear fog light is integrated into the brake light and uses its variably activated LEDs. The tail lights cannot be seen when the hatch is open and it has small LED lights on the rear side of the C-pillars. INTERIOR The interior is great! Spacious for a hatch and very sporty! The curved instrument panel resembles an aeroplane wing. Four round, protruding air vents are reminiscent of jet turbines and can be adjusted using a ball mechanism. The console on the centre tunnel is reminiscent of the rear of a sailing yacht.
Layout of the controls is ergonomically precise. The centre console is inclined slightly towards the driver. Located on its lower end are the switches for the secondary functions and the climate control system unit. The controls for the radio or the optional MMI navigation plus that my test car had are in the middle of the centre console. (The 6.5inch display can retract into the instrument panel when not in use.)
ENGINES The Audi A1 Sportback is available with a choice of four engines - three TFSI and one TDI. They cover a performance range from 63kW to 136kW. All of these units combine direct injection and turbo-charging. This down-sizing concept is what gives them their sporty performance with minimal fuel consumption.
The cleverly laid out instrument cluster has large dials - black faces, red needles and white digits. In the dark the instruments are lit in white, the buttons red. Somehow the sporty seats are just made for me and really suit me with my body fitting perfectly! The only little hiccup I had was a personal battle with the back headrest to fit my youngest grand-daughters car seat, but in the end I managed to fit it with no problem. LUGGAGE COMPARTMENT The Audi A1 Sportback will not win awards in this category but you can always fold down the split rear seat backs to increase the size. The L-shaped headrests remain in place with the rear seat backs folded down.
tiny little bit of wheel spin, brought great enjoyment to my granddaughters, who kept telling me I was faster than the car next to us! TECHNICAL HIGHLIGHTS One of the technical highlights of the A1 Sportback is the electro-hydraulic rackand-pinion power steering. The flow of oil is produced by an electric motor that works more efficiently than a strictly hydraulic system. Feedback is precise and sensitive, the response spontaneous. It has a sporty chassis with wide track and direct steering ratio. The A1 Sportback is equipped with the ESP stabilization system with electronic limited slip differential at the front to bolster the agile handling.
The smallest of three petrol engines is the 1.2 T FSI that retails at R227 400. I was privileged to test drive the A1 1.4T FSI S line, that is only available with seven speed S tronic transmission and has a price tag of R319 500 excluding all the optional extras. This is the most powerful engine in the range and the one that produces 136kW and 250Nm of torque. The sprint from zero to 100km/h is a matter of 7 seconds!!! A little quick pull off at a traffic light with a
SAFETY Standard passive safety features include two front airbags and 6 side airbags across all A1 Sportback models. The brake system is dual-circuit with diagonal split and includes all the mod cons such as ABS, ESP with EBD and EDL.
