Johannesburg – Get in touch with the foodie in you and impress the man or woman of your dreams with these first date tips from BET’s Africa on a Plate host, Lenstwe Bhengu. 

Speaking to The Juice, the chef gave us some helpful tips on the perfect meal to cook to win over that special someone. 

“I would cook a risotto – a beautiful wild mushroom risotto with shredded chicken on top of it,” he explains. 

Lenstwe also believes you can never go wrong with a little bit of alcohol. “Anything that has alcohol in it will always be a sure winner.”
