DENNY SWEET AND SOUR CHICKEN WINGS

In my opinion, this is the best way to prepare chicken wings, you get the best of both worlds. The chicken is cooked thoroughly and absorbs all the great flavours of the sauce. Plus you get the crispy braai stickiness once cooked and on the braai.

WAFFLE BRAAIBROODJIE

Waffles are very versatile and can be served sweet or savoury. I made this very simple waffle braaibroodjie using 2 ingredients. You can fill and braai them with any ingredients that makes you happy! Things that will work great is bacon, cheese, nutella, banana, salami, feta and so on. To have a waffle machine in your house is a big luxury and makes life better, so add it to your gifting list if you do not already own one.

FRESH FISH WITH FRAGRANT SAUCE

Although cultivated and available in a much larger part of South Africa, I associate plum red tomatoes and the best olives with the Klein Karoo. This is not necessarily a fact, it’s simply my frame of reference. It’s the Tuscany of South Africa if you will. For me it follows logically that fresh lemon, capers, basil, garlic and white wine would also play a role here. This sauce compliments the fish, and make sure to have some good quality bread to scrape up all the extra sauce.
