African food is as unique as the people who cook and eat it.
A lot of white African history is written in Afrikaans, which is great if you are fluent in the language. It can be very frustrating that English-speaking South Africans haven’t been quite as dedicated and passionate at recording and remembering these things as our Afrikaans speaking counterparts. Please share your secrets so that we don’t lose them. As drought hits and the lights keep going out many of us might need to rekindle the spirit of the pioneers of old to navigate through our days.
Recently I was told that in the north of South Africa, at a time when the temperature is overclocking the big 40c, that family members have been told that they will be without water for a week. All over the world, resources are getting scarce and people are feeling the pinch as prices escalate for services for those who can get them. We all need to be re-learn how to be resourceful and simply do more with less.
That said, I am thirsty. Off to put the kettle on while I can…. Meantime, I hope you enjoy browsing this section.
