Sharing and breaking bread through creativity

With our latest release of our collection BOKAMUSO, we wanted not only to create products that felt like "HOME", but also hero the different people that have inspired the LC brand, making waves in their own creative disciplines.
When we first discovered the Pretoria, SA, based Masego Mbonyana, Chef & Food Stylist also founder of Meals with Masego, we knew she would be the perfect person to partner with as she possesses a unique eye for styling tableware and capturing food inspired scenes, always bringing her magic to the table. 
Our collaboration naturally took an non-traditional approach, reaching out on social media, in the hopes that we could possibly find an avenue to both share our creativity in a way that aids our mutual growth and also rooted in the sheer joy of creating and trusting the process of following our dreams.


"When women work together, and hold each others hands, great mountains can be moved, and beautiful crowns are deserving for all of us to be worn - Victory." B.C

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup cocktail tomatoes

1 tablespoon garlic
1 lemon, sliced
½ cup dill
½ cups parsley

2 teaspoons garlic
1 tablespoon dill
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut all fins off the fish using scissors – both fins on the side, and the fins on the back and underside of the fish (but not the tail).
