A braai white season – an exposé of the soft underbelly of the Afrikaner
Christo Lombaard - 2011-02-16
Christo Lombaard provides a tongue-in-cheek take on one of Afrikaans culture’s holy cows. To heat meat over a food fire is no new trend in the Johannesburg area. This culinary act may go back two million years and more, in this very vicinity. Proof? Less than an hour’s drive north-west of Jo’burg lies the “Cradle of Humanity”, the archaeological remains of the possible birthplace of our species. This is where many moons, nay, millennia, ago, some of our ancient forebears...

The Yeoville Trail, Johannesburg
Paul Murray - 2010-09-15
Conversation at a recent get-together with colleagues from more than twenty years back centred on the topic of old times and haunts in the Johannesburg of the early eighties. We reminded ourselves how we would go for pizza to Mama’s, the Italian Restaurant in Yeoville, or to the Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet on the corner of Rockey and Bezuidenhout Streets for a late-night snack when burning the midnight oil. Even everyday shopping was easier to do by nipping across Louis Botha Avenue, than...

The South African Food Scene
Paul Murray - 2010-06-24
On the historic occasion of the FIFA 2010 World Cup thousands of foreigners are currently flooding our local scene. At some or other time there will be those who will want to know more about what is really local and lekker when it comes to eating. And there will be places here and there where they will get a taste of it. But they will never get it as good as the cognoscenti know how to prepare it and serve it up. I suppose it is much the same for every country and its traditions of regional...
