An upbeat red lipstick and sneaker-wearing sister duo out to change the way that people think about food!
From a very young age we loved to be in the kitchen; cooking, baking and trying out new things. We were encouraged by a loving mum whose passion for food and cooking certainly rubbed off on us and inspired us to be constantly growing, innovating and experimenting with food…and so began the food journey of The Delish Sisters.
The potential of owning our own restaurant in the future was something that we had always dreamed of doing together, and the buzzing Durban and Umhlanga Food Market scene was the perfect way to start.

With the bigger picture in mind we began gathering momentum and before we knew it, we were half way through 2014, we’d quit our day jobs and Delish Sisters had snowballed into catering and starting up a little restaurant at The Ballito House.
