This book aims squarely at our heritage and the heart of what is truly South African: great food, glorious wine, stunning countryside and unsurpassed hospitality shared with friends around a braai. With mouth-watering recipes, useful braaing tips and techniques, as well as wine notes and wine pairing suggestions from some of the Cape's favourite wine estates, this book is a tribute to South Africa's beloved pastime. The owners and winemakers, personalities such as Jan 'Boland' Coetzee and Schalk Burger amongst others, share their secrets for and interpretations of the perfect braai. Expect meals like tea-smoked springbok salad, gemsbok fillet, seafood potjie, vegetables in phyllo pastry, etc. with inspiring recipes for salads, breads, chutneys, preserves and desserts as accompaniments. The photography and styling of nearly 30 wine estates not only captures a sumptuous collection of recipes and ideas for the braai, but also the simple pleasure of lighting up a braai and entertaining the South African way.It is written, photographed and compiled by Wines of South Africa (WOSA), a not-for-profit organisation that promotes the exports of all South African wines in key international markets.
