South Africa celebrated National Braai Day yesterday. I was disappointed that there was no initiative to encourage the nation to burn alien vegetation and so to preserve our indigenous trees, my personal choice was my trusty gas griller.
Ours was a low-key affair, the household members had things to do and places to go; the children chose to have lunch in the pool, the men munched intermittently around the snooker table.
My sauce stole the show, thank you Tandy.
(I added cream and green peppercorns from my precious little bottle that came to me all the way from Madagascar.)
I was especially homesick for my hometown, but the eponymous wine went some way to soothing my longing.
Today lies ahead, with no commitments; I think a trip to the Good Food & Wine Expo is a good idea …
