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.
Traditional Mince Bobotie
This classic South African dinner dish is always a winner. While this recipe makes enough to fill about six to eight ramekins, you can also bake it all together in a casserole dish – no need to adjust the cooking time. And where the recipe calls for you to simmer the mince, keep a close eye on it, as the mince sauce is thickened by the bread and will catch easily.
