On Saturday morning 4 September myself and Braai4Heritage ambassador Dan Nicholl will arrive at Heathrow airport in London for the UK leg of the Soutie Braai Outreach Program (the SBOP). As many know, Braai4Heritage is about creating an annual day of celebration for South Africa. But you know this because the media tells you about it. The beauty of the Braai4Heritage celebration is that it falls on a public holiday, National Heritage Day. But this is not the case in other countries, so sometimes its difficult to celebrate there, as 24 September might be in the middle of the week. And we all know the poor guys in London work long hours. But this year 24 September falls on a Friday. So there is more than enough time to braai. And that is why we are heading over to London this weekend. To go and drum up support and raise awareness for National Braai Day on 24 September.
If you are on Facebook, you can join the event page of this braai, and help us invite the other South Africans in London as well.
*Update. Shaka Zulu emailed us the final menu for the braai buffet on Saturday: Boerewors & chutney; Chicken Sosaties; Lamb chops; Rump steak with beer braaivleis basting sauce; Hot cheese & potato salad; Green leaf salad & mustard dressing; Grilled corn; Koeksisters
