Made a creamed corn bake. Great accompaniment for a braai. Our best SA friends introduced me to it.

Simple but it works.

Another odd one, but loved it, was a pumpkin waffle for breakfast. In PE.

Waterblommetjie stew is actually the only true Saffa dish.
The other stuff are all foreign concepts tailored to local conditions.

Waterblommetjie stew is sill just a fokon stew that was tailored to local conditions. Saffa food is just a reflection of our divers culture.

Two minute walk from my office so a regular haunt. Great steak if that is our thing. They are big sponsors of the local school rugby team SACS.

"Divers" is a word in its own right, albeit a fairly formal and uncommon one. ... Both words still carry the "various" meaning, but these days "divers" (now DYE-verz) is more likely to emphasize multiplicity (as in "on divers occasions"), whereas "diverse" (now dye-VERSS) usually emphasizes uniqueness.

Lots to like in South Africa on the food front but one of my favorites memories was a simple jar of curried peaches I picked up at a market between Hermanus and Cape Town. The more the years that go by the more wonderful I remember them to be.

Saffa food is pretty good really, the only thing i am not a fan of at all, is Pap. Just tastes like how it looks, white fluffy filler Meh

The ‘adding sugar to everyfink’ thing that seems to be Afrikaans method , also takes some getting used to, and explains their body shape.

Also not a fan of pap. Just leave the pap and do a braai broodjie.
