D.I.Braai This Heritage Day

Tomorrow South Africa celebrates National Heritage Day (oh and yay public holiday)!

Thanks to Jan Braai‘s National Braai Day initiative it has now become semi-traditional to celebrate our rich individual AND shared heritage with a braai!

“The National Braai Day initiative aims to position National Heritage Day as South Africa’s annual day of celebration. We call on all South Africans to unite around fires, share our heritage and wave our flag on 24 September every year.”

No matter our race, language or religion, we as South Africans share one common custom – to celebrate around a cooking fire. It is known by many names: Shisa Nyama, Braai and Ukosa to name but a few. When we want to celebrate, relax or make merry we light a fire and start grilling – this is what we, as a nation, share.

Looking for some unique braai ideas? Check out the clips below:

Want to try and braai something a little different this Heritage Day? In this clip SuzelleDIY will show you how to make “Boerewors Bagel Dogs“. It may sound kind of weird but it looks delicious – think bread-on-a-stick meets boerewors roll. Furthermore, she is absolutely hilarious in this video – as the Afrikaans folk would say: “sy is op haar stukke“! The “I’m the Wolverine!” and “…now I’m Edward Scissor(s)hands” comments had me in stitches!

Who said the braai is just for chops, steak and wors? Why not try a dessert on the braai?! In this clip SuzelleDIY and Bush Cook Guru, Justin Bonello, illustrates how to make “Braaied Brandy Banana Splits“. Looks yummy! Shame poor Justin – remember jealousy makes you nasty Suzelle!
