This day is all about embracing our different cultures and coming together to enjoy who we are.
We do it through shared traditional meals.
Main meal – Tshisanyama:
Tshisanyama - which translates to burn the meat - or braaivleis are both familiar names we use as South Africans when we unite to cook our meat over an open flame. We braai practically anything – lamb, boerewors, pork, sosaties, chicken and even fish.
A braaibroodjie is the South African version of a toasted sandwich made on the braai. This will make an excellent side – just butter the outside of the bread for a crispy texture and golden colour.
Pap and chakalaka
Pap and chakalaka is as South African as it gets! Chakalaka is a South African vegetable relish that is usually spicy. A braai just feels incomplete without two of our nation’s most beloved sides, chakalaka and pap.
Braaied potato halves
It’s a piece of South African braai tradition to put your potatoes in foil and then put them on the coals to cook, but another alternative is to par-boil your potatoes in their skins, slice them in half, and then season with herbs and a little of olive oil, then put them on the grill to brown, turning them regularly.
Milk tart and koeksisters
Looking for a classic South African pudding to serve after a delightful braai with family and friends? Then why not end things off on a sweet note with two of our favourite South African favourite desserts, milk tart and our darling koeksisters.
