Find Festive African Twists

Find Festive African Twists

We know that an African festive season isn’t all snowflakes and winter chills – it means heat, lots of family time and refreshing meals that sustain you throughout the busy summer days. This is the perfect opportunity to change those traditional festive ingredients up, and replace it with an unexpected twist that shows off your unique culinary flair.

Take it outside

Ditch the hot kitchen stove and cook your meats on the braai. You can even turn this into a family occasion! Everyone can get involved in cooking their favourite Christmas meals and ensure that you don’t miss out on any of that precious family time.

Fresh produce

Don’t forget about the fresh ingredients made available during summer and create some wholesome and delicious salads. These crunchy creations can add a fresh balance to those rich roasts and crunchy braai meats that will be sizzling over hot coals during the holidays.

Substitute flavours

Take advantage of the home grown ingredients that you love so much and replace the cherries on the gammon with pineapples or sprinkle coconut on your cakes instead of icing sugar. Make the most of your African festive season and the incredible feasts that come with it.
