Today South Africa is characterised by the kaleidoscope of cultures, traditions and religions that brought about the term Rainbow Nation. Without doubt a great way to experience the diversity of cultures is through the local food, often referred to as the Rainbow Cuisine. For the daring diner, South Africa offers culinary adventures ranging from crocodile and mopane worms to Ostrich eggs.
A 'sosatie' is a kind of South African kebab – but it is quite distinct from a Turkish kebab or a Portuguese/Brazilian espetada, particularly for two reasons: the meat is marinaded in a sweet Cape Malay curry sauce before cooking; and the meat on the skewer is interspersed with vegetables and fruit. - See more at: http://www.cooksister.com/2010/09/lamb-sosaties-revisited.html#sthash.m7N2vGVl.dpuf
"Growing up in South Africa, the one cookie-tin constant that every child will remember is crunchies. They were usually one of the first things that your mom let you bake and kept forever in an airtight container, so we all grew up on crunchies. To me, they were distressingly unglamorous....but they certainly were a stalwart of every cookie tin that I remember growing up." Make your own South African "Crunchies" today!
