Learn To Cook South African Style

South Africa is rightly known for its cuisine, a fusion cuisine that celebrates their cultural heritage, with uniquely South African know-how and ingredients. From the casual brasseries, caf├ęs and diners to some of the best fine dining establishments to be found, the standards are consistently high.

There are myriad indigenous ingredients and delicacies such as Ostrich steaks, Springbok Loin, Karoo Lamb, Biltong (dried, salted meat), Bobotie (a South African version of Shepherd's pie) and boerewors (hand-made farm sausages, grilled on an open flame). For the more daring diner, South Africa offers culinary challenges ranging from crocodile sirloins to fried caterpillars to sheep heads - all three are reputed to be delicious! Traditional African food is colourful, interesting, and tastes terrific. A well-prepared local meal can be a highlight of your trip to South Africa.
