Every year since 1995, South Africans celebrate Heritage Day on the 25th of September. It’s a day of celebrating and remembering our cultural heritage. It’s also a day of people coming together and enjoying the heritage that we are creating. One of the greatest ways, in South Africa, to celebrate our heritage is around braai with many friends.
This is why Heritage Day is also known as National Braai Day – a day full of different cultures and races enjoying a braai in a backyard or park. I actually don’t know too many people who don’t enjoy that; I’ve actually met none that do.
This year I might go for the traditional backyard braai. The one where all your friends come over with some meat, salad, rolls and something to drink. It’s a guaranteed success. Another option would be to head out to a park like Zoo Lake armed with a braai, some charcoal and firelighters (don’t forget those), some food and definitely some friends.
There’s also another option I found out about which may come as a more exclusive option. The Lacuna Bistro at the Maslow Hotel has Gourmet Braai and Jazz sessions on Sundays, which I hear are quite a hit. They’ll also be welcoming friends on Heritage Day which could be quite an awesome way to spend part of your day.
Who’s joining me one Sunday?
