Sizzle and Smoke, best Braai ideas

March 2021

Fire up the braai, invite a few friends around, and enjoy the balmy Autumn weather. This is such a good time to make use of Summer’s bounty of sun-ripe tomatoes, summer herbs like basil and mint (see recipe for Salsa Verdi) and fresh meat or fish, cooked with care and presented with style.

Slowly, slowly does it! Pour yourself a long cool drink and relax in a comfortable deck chair while our Plum Baste and a gentle fire work their magic on these deeply slashed chicken thighs. Or serve up a perfectly cooked steak, paired with this versatile, fresh Salsa Verdi. Our Roasted Tomatoes are an ideal side dish for this time of year. Then give these tangy and tasty Grilled Pineapple Skewers a try for something different!

This dish celebrates the sweetness and great flavour of sun-ripened tomatoes in season.
