The Art of the BraaiLouisV
The humble braai has been such a large part of South African culture it’s hard to separate the two. While the idea of barbecuing is in now way uniquely South African, we are one of the only cultures on Earth to have developed our own name for it – the braai. What would South Africa be without the braai? In fact, the braai is such an important part of our culture, that we even have a public holiday dedicated to it – braai day.
But how does this effect you? Well, if you’re reading this or have found yourself scrolling through this website, the you’re already on the right track. Even though it’s possible to braai on the ground with nothing but a fire to cook your food, the truth is that braai culture has developed a variety of technologies unique specifically to the art of preparing food over the fire. This is where we come in – the braai specialists!
