The Braai, the whole Braai and nothing but the Braai

A few weeks ago I linked to a humourous video on South African Braai Etiquette and Yorkshire Pudding did the unthinkable and suggested that a braai is just a barbeque. I was speechless at the suggestion and never had the words to respond, until today, when I read Cooksister’s post “Braai, the beloved country”, that expresses perfectly why a braai is not just a barbecue.

  1. Ja, Cooksister really has an incredible way of putting feelings in to appropriate and effective words!!

  2. YP should pop down south sometime and we can introduce him to the culinary delights and social interaction around the braai. At the current exchange rate he will have enough dosh left after the flight to fork out for the meat as well! 🙂
