Television personality Somizi Mhlongo is preparing for the release of his first ever cookbook in a few weeks time. The star says he wants to break records with the book, like never before and completely and wholeheartedly urging the public and fans to pre-order a copy.

A true definition of excitement for the launch, Somizi took to Instagram to make the announcement to his fans in a short clip, urging and relying on them to enable the cookbook titled Dinner At Somizi’s: I Am Not A Chef to “break records”.

The South African star says that every single dish in the book was done with his own hands. He believes that the book would be a record-breaker and South Africa strongly believes that it will be.

Though the cookbook’s exact release date is still to be confirmed, it will be available at all CNA stores once it does hit the shelves. Mzansi is pleased with the outcome of Somizi’s successes and ready for the release of the cookbook.
