If you are human, you can braai. Cooking meat over a fire is something that defines our evolution as a species. The act of using fire to cook food even defines our social structure as mammals - thanks to the lucky lightning strike eons ago, and the fact that there were some steaks handy. Anything tastes better if you hold it over a fire for a while. Sure, it may t improve the flavour of Brussels sprouts, but if you leave them on for long eugh, it's a good way to get rid of them. Take everything you think you kw about cooking and forget it. Jean Nel is re-inventing the braai. It is about so much more than just steaks and boerewors; anything that can be eaten can be braaied. From salads to sides, meats to veg...you could even invite a vegetarian to a braai!

The book contains the secrets of cooking everything from a perfect 'tjoppie' to breads and salads on that favourite South African cultural icon - the braai. Not only does he present a host of delicious and unexpected recipes; he goes beyond just cooking, covering everything you need to kw about the braai including the tools you'll need and their maintenance.
