A Jozi Girl

Jozi | Food | Wine | Art | Music | coffee | Inspiration

Hi there, I’m Liesl

.. OR, Lilo, which is my nickname.

I’m just “A Jozi Girl”, in love with this beautiful city – Johannesburg, Joburg, Jozi, my hometown! Join me as I do life in the city, exploring this “Grand Old Dame” – 134 years old, and still as elegant, bustling, beautiful, and enjoyable as ever!

Come with me to my favourite Jozi places, hidden gems. Have fun with me, doing life, hobbies, family, food, home, style, coffee, wine, and more!


Music is food for my soul!

I love all kinds of music, Jazz, Classical, R&B, Pop, Gospel & Rock. So grab a good cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a cup of tea and spend some time with me… chilling with some smooth sounds.

Every week, I will feature a different artist and share  my journey of how I “met” the artist  – whether through radio, a vintage vinyl, or at an event – a birthday or a wedding.

Take a musical journey with me, and discover, old favourites and new favourites.

Unwind, let you hair down and let the music speak to your soul.

Cooking with a Jozi Girl

Lilo’s Kitchen

My kitchen is my happy place! I enjoy unwinding at the end of my work day, preparing dinner for my family, while I enjoy a glass of red wine and feed my soul with some beautiful music.

I learnt to cook in my Momma’s kitchen and have been cooking since I was 8 years old.  Taught by my mom and my sister, Sandy.  I will be sharing many of the traditional recipes from my childhood, as well as some newer  ones.  I love Jamie Oliver and his absolute love for good food. I cook many of his dishes, and of course, I add my own flair.

Cooking with A Jozi Girl

For me, cooking is not a chore, but rather an expression of my creativity.  I’m an adventurous cook, experimenting with different flavours, ingredients and cooking methods. 

I invite you to join me in the kitchen and enjoy these recipes with me.

Good Food is Love!
