  2. #yudhikayumyum #AMCforlife My fondest memories of growing up almost always involves AMC! Food was and still is a biggie with our family 🙂 I can still smell the lovely farmhouse breakfasts being prepared by my gran (Nani) in this cookware range. So lovely to know that a simple glance takes you on a trip down memory lane!

  4. I love AMC and really would want to give this prize to my mom in law if I win, she told me that she saved yearly to buy ALL the pots and pans from AMC and a neighbour’s son on drugs entered there home and stole every last one, she never got one AMC again after that and it was a devastating blow #yudhikayumyum #AMCforlife

  5. The delicious treats always prepared with the simple recipes , the compliments at the dinning table from loved ones… Memories made and more than just a meal prepared. Thank you for the best recipes.:)AMC is a brand that I can still recall mum cooking her famous cornish curry on a Sunday and everyone would spend the day spreading cheer and making the most beautiful memories… #yudhikayumyum #AMCforlife

She explored wid food. Growing up she made different curries green banana wid yams, bindi used to be filled with masala n deep fried in the flat pot similar to this one n she also cooked her roti there. I really wud love to win this so I cud make the dishes my mum prepared.

    I have been reading your snowball recipe got be salivating, we very rarely find good snowballs in stores these days…… thank you for the recipe

  28. My 3yr old has loved you since the day he viewed a recording we had of you from Saffron TV. You truly are a cooking inspiration who has changed my view that a pot is just not a pot unless you are using the best being AMC. Cooking becomes a lot easier and more fun if you have the right tools for the right recipes! Link posted on

  29. Been going through all your old posts and I must say wow. Definitely inspirational and educational as well as delicious. Looking at the gorgeous pictures it is making me crave the AMC pot even more……#yudhikayumyum #amcforlife

  30. # yudhikayumyum #AMCforlife Yudhika, your recipes have created an avid chef in me and I love testing them because you make sure that ingredients and instructions are simple, though I have yet to roll out a roti that even resembles a roundness in shape #giggling. More so, your stories inspire me because as women we live through many defining moments …. Moments that either emancipate us or keep us sheltered from exploring a world – thank U for the heart felt and tongue in cheek moments! Kay straightfill

  31. I’ve shared your competition…everywhere! I really hope I win this – can you believe I don’t own an AMC pot?

  32. I shared your post…everywhere! I really hope I win this. Can you believe that I don’t own an AMC pot? Would love to start a collection of my own

  34. Hi Yudhika, Love your recipes, you make it look so simple! #yudhikayumyum #amcforlife, also a big fan of AMC. Keep up the good work 🙂

  35. #yudhikayumyum #amcforlife really enjoying your blog Yudhika especially the pictures of the food lol, make s me want to lick the screen. Thank you 🙂

  36. #yudhikayumyum #amcforlife love your recipes and I love my two amc pots, hoping to one day expand my collection 🙂

  37. I always wanted to own an amc set but could not afford it from way back 26 years ago. April this year I bought the most beautiful selected items that I know I would get maximum usage. My husband thought I was foolish and was wasting money until he tasted the much more healthier way of using amc and the recipes. My next list of amc is the skillet and the induction plate so that breakfast could be made whilst we are eating at our table. Now I am an amc follower for life.

  38. #yudhikayumyum #amcforlife I am absolutely in love with this pot! Cannot do without my amc. Its the best cookware ive ever used!

  39. Super love all the inspirational stories that go along with the delicious recipes!!! #yudhikayumyum #amcforlife

  40. #yudhikayumyum #amcforlife Love these pots for their heavy bases. I’ve never burnt a curry in an AMC pot.

  41. I would love love love to win this AMC Skillet and gift it to my precious mum, who is most loyal to this awesome brand. Many many many many years ago she purchased a few AMC pots, which she religiously uses every single day. After 35 odd years, it’s starting to look it’s age, but mum refuses to part with them. She swears by these pots, and says the food tastes better than it would in any other. I think it’s a combination of her amazing cooking skills and the great quality of AMC cookware. In my opinion, it’s a delicious combination. I’ve also been trying A LOT of your recipes in the last year and I often send pics to my mum who lives in Durban. She’s super impressed and thinks you’re a great teacher. I agree! Thank you for the great recipes and amazing ideas! #yudhikayumyum #amcforlife
