For Heritage Month, the team at Nederburg’s The Manor in Paarl is dusting off their braai equipment and inviting family and friends to come and celebrate all things braai with them over the next couple of weekends.
Is there anything more quintessentially South African than a braai? Those in the know will know that it’s a way of life here in SA. It’s certainly not just about throwing some meat on the fire and hoping for the best, but rather a special ritual that centres around the joyful preparation and sharing of a tasty meal (usually involving some form of grilled meat) while spending time with loved ones, telling stories, discussing all and sundry, as well as remembering and knowing who South Africans are and what they are made of.
The Manor team of chefs are lighting the fires. There are three options to choose from: The Crowd Pleaser, The Free State Vegetarian and the Full House. The meat that is prepared is ethically sourced and grass-fed.
A wide range of Nederburg’s award-winning wines, including its popular Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, and a selection of ciders, beers and soft drinks will be served from a bar set up on the lawn outside the historic manor house.
Picnic blankets and cushions are available on a first-come, first-served basis (pre-bookings take preference). There are some fun lawn games for young and old, and loads of space for the young ones to shake off some energy.
There’s also free live music on offer:
