Why does Citrum Khumalo support Braai4Heritage?
His passion of promoting South African and African cuisine is growing day by day and there wasn’t a better endorsement than Braai4Heritage which is a true South African style of cooking and it has been like this for many years. He believes it is time that we take this internationally and ensure that it is fully recognised by all as a true South African initiative. “Braai is also a very healthy way of cooking and as a chef it is one of the best methods to bring out great flavours in the food.”
