This is the ultimate book for every guy or girl that’s ever lit a fire – whether you’re still battling to get your mates to give you the tongs, or have already got yours … gold-plated. We’re talking about the braai and it happens all across South Africa, no matter what the weather, because our social get-togethers just wouldn’t be the same without it: it’s that build up before the big match or the aftermath of a great party. Not only is the braai part of the genetic blueprint of our country, but for some of us it has become a national obsession – and for Justin Bonello, chefs Marthinus Ferreira and Bertus Basson and 50 crew and friends, South Africa’s favourite pastime was the perfect excuse they needed to hit the backroads on a bumpy 8000km, 62-day open fire adventure.
Based on the second season of the home grown television series, The Ultimate Braai Master, this cookbook is a must-have if you are all about friends, the outdoors and creating memories around seriously good food.
