Potjiekos - South Africa [It means "small pot food." As a stew prepared outdoors, made in a 3-leg cast iron pot, the potjie descended from the Dutch oven of the Netherlands to South Africa in the 17th century and is now throughout the homes and villages of South Africa. The pot is heated using small amounts of wood or charcoal ]
A Potjie pot is a big part of South African cooking. It is a big clay pot (similar to a dutch oven) used by many to create stew-like dishes containing meats and vegetables called Potjiekos ("small pot food"). Every South African with a Potjie has their own special way of cooking their Potjiekos; there are even festivals to award the best!
