Chef Tamsin Snyman’s Cinnamon Roasted Pumpkin

Chef Tamsin Snyman’s Cinnamon Roasted Pumpkin

Pumpkins were grown in Africa long before the Cape was colonized, and its popularity endures to this day. Rural communities cook pumpkin simply – sliced and boiled, or cooked with maize kernels, pap (maize meal) or beans. Early Dutch cooks mashed pumpkin with butter, sugar and cinnamon; this is an adaptation of that idea.
