Proudly South-African... The word braai is Afrikaans for "barbecue" or "grill" and is a social custom in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Lesotho, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The term originated with the Afrikaans-speaking people, but has since been adopted by South Africans of many ethnic backgrounds. The word vleis is Afrikaans for "meat".
The most common and festive means of food preparation in South Africa is the braai. Comparable to a cook-out in America, throwing a braai is how communities connect and families celebrate. Usually several types of meats are prepared on the grill, and served with a variety of side dishes.
