Sithole, who had more than 40 years' experience in the food industry, made a name for herself as the country’s first black food writer.
She travelled to at least 19 countries on the African continent.
It is during her travels that she would familiarise herself with recipes from the foot to the horn of Africa.
Hence she captured her culinary travels in her 1 999 book Cooking from Cape to Cairo.
