Is there anything more quintessentially South African than a braai? Those in the know will tell you that itโ€™s a way of life here in SA. Itโ€™s certainly not just about throwing some meat on the fire and hoping for the best, but rather a special ritual that centres around the joyful preparation and sharing of a tasty meal (usually involving some form of grilled meat) while spending time with family and friends, telling stories, discussing all and sundry, as well as remembering and knowing who we are and what weโ€™re made of as South Africans.
