Serves 3-4 Prawns in the bush? Are you nuts? It is a very appetising snack or a great meal. As much as we love our succulent lamb chops, course-ground boerewors, and Picanto rump steak strip starters, a change of menu now and again is always good. We need to have a balanced intake of nutrients, proteins, and vegetables after all. Chicken and fish are not veggies, but they are kind of close. When we detox we make Portobello Mushroom Risotto, but add some pancetta and lots of Parmesan – just for the love of it. Served as a starter or

Let’s Braai Some Peaches, Plums and Nectarines For most of us, it is not summer without the evocative smell of a smoky braai. Firing up the coals and throwing on our meat of choice is usually a thing of joy. However, the standard braai featuring meat and potato salad or coleslaw could be accused of being a little mundane or lacklustre, so here are some new and delicious braai suggestions, prepared by some of our favourite food personalities. They’re all inspired by the season’s stone fruit, so that you may add some zest and excitement to your outdoor cooking this

“What? No ways!” my wife said, when I showed her the box from the Czech Republic. “But we can have braaied chops in every possible way,” I replied. “And if it ruins the meat you are paying for it!” my wife added. “The instructions say that it can be used by children of eight years and older, surely my five score and ten puts me at an advantage? After all, how difficult can it be putting chops in an oven?” I replied. To cut a long story short, we discovered a new way of enjoying fine dining in the great

Interview Meghan Spilsbury Photography Mark Wessels and Matthys van Lill   Jan Braai Jan Braai, the flaming force behind National Braai Day, which has become one of South Africa’s favourite annual commemorations, shares his motivation, passion and love for cooking over hot coals. Caravan & Outdoor Life: What was it that first inspired you to create National Braai Day?

My vision is to see South Africa come to a standstill every year on Heritage Day, 24 September, with all

  Pizza in a pan How about, for a change, making something completely different from the usual stock-standard braai? After all, they say that a change is as good as a holiday. So why not try baking pizzas? They work remarkably well and are fun to make, with everyone pitching in to come up with different topping combinations. Each pizza can then be divided up and devoured by everyone as it comes off the fire. Our crowd scoffed them down with delight, and they were some of the nicest pizzas with the crispiest crusts we’d ever eaten! To make a
