Who is Toast Coetzer?
He works for WEG and Go! travel magazines in Cape Town. Which is down if you read this in Joburg. It’s up if you read it from Antarctica. He is also in a band called The Buckfever Underground, infact, he is the lead-singer of the band. However, he does not really sing, he rhythmically talks. So in a way he is the lead-rhythmic-talker of the band. Me and Toast once climbed Devils Peak, Table Mountain and Lions head in one day. We braaied on top of each. Snoek for breakfast on Devils Peak, Chicken for lunch on Table mountain, and Lamb for dinner on Lions head. It was a gas braai, so quite safe. Nonetheless, flames on Table Mountain are illegal so we don’t really talk about that day in public.
Why does Toast Coetzer support Braai4Heritage?
“It goes without saying that I like to braai and that I know and believe that a day out, having a braai, is some of the best times you can spend with friends and family. I live in a fascist block of flats where you’re not allowed to braai, (this is true, he really does) so when I can, I cruise out to Oudekraal, just ten minutes away, but really a world away. On one side there’s the sea, on the other the Twelve Apostles. And then I put something on the braai and the world smells good.”
