South African cuisine is a unique mix of European and Malay influences, and the South African barbecue or “braai” is a big part of the culture. As with other places, winemakers in South Africa really get to enjoy an idyllic lifestyle with food, wine and gorgeous scenery, and much of this is centered around the braai.
In this book, 23 Cape winemakers share their favorite braai recipes. There is everything from ostrich burgers to springbok steaks to crayfish all done on the braai, with more traditional recipes too, and who could forget the “braai pie”? Perfect for the homesick South African or for someone who wants to go beyond their usual repertoire of barbeque recipes. This book includes the basics of braaing and side dishes.
