Product Description

Synopsis

The fact that more than 100,000 copies of this book have been sold is maybe ample proof that it offers sound, practical advice on all aspects of a braai - from building the fire to judging when the food is cooked.

I am delighted to see this available on Amazon. I bought my well used copy in cape town some years ago...

This book is the real deal - proper sosatie recipes, a boerewors recipe, how to make pap... and loads of great braai ideas. This isn't one of those "cuisine neuveu" attempts with silly combinations of ingredients: this is the real thing.

I've made many of the recipes in the book and never a flop.

If you dont live anywhere near a South African butcher, this book will help you replicate the sort of thing you'd expect at a good SA Braai.

Bak Gat!

this book is the perfect way to make any homesick South African smile! Forget the rest of the Christmas present, my husband has had his nose glued to this book ever since!! All the old favourites, marinades, combinations and methods....happiness all round.

Whilst this is only 96 pages long, it packs in an awful lot of information. Unlike many modern cookbooks, it doesn't waste space with full page photo's of dishes (or, worse, of a grinning celebrity author Doing Something). The pictures, which are nevertheless plentiful, are perfectly adequate & proportionate to the recipes, which themselves are clear & concise. Once the method of making savoury butter has been explained (two para's), for example, what more do you need than a list of ingredients & a single line that says "Complements x, y, and z"? Result - 9 recipes on that particular page.

If you're S.African, I'm sure you'll love this; if you're a keen barbecuer, equally so. If you're neither, but a competent cook (that's me), most if not all of the recipes are easily adapted to other cooking methods. Having become rather partial to biltong, I bought this hoping for some suitable spice recipes, as I knew there was a section on sausages & boerewors. Unfortunately, there was very little from that perspective, but it's nevertheless an excellent book.

My one minor quibble is that there is no glossary of ingredients. The book was originally published in 1986 & obviously for a domestic SA market. However, it was already on to its 4th edition by 1993 & this has now been reprinted no less than 16 times. With the increasing internationalisation of cooking, and the likes of Amazon making the purchase of books like this easy, it's probably due a 5th edition. Whilst I'm quite capable of doing my own research, you are left wondering what sort of a fish a perlemoen, grunter, or a kingklip is, what you might substitute for them in the likely event you can't source them outside SA, or where you might get mealie flour if you want it. It really is only a minor detraction, though, from a cookbook well worth adding to your shelf.

Some of the pics look like they were taken in the 70s, but the recipes are great and the descriptions make you want to try them out. Getting some ingredients might be difficult in the UK, but get something similar and give it a go! We love camping and these recipes are great for those long evenings sitting out in the sun. Maybe not watching Springbok, but still enjoying the BBQ!
