Must-Have Braai Gadgets

Yay! It’s a long weekend! Are you kitted out for another epic national braai day? Here are some must-have gadgets and accessories to help you defend your place among the braai masters.

Chicken Tagine And Saffron Couscous

Braai Day and, more importantly, Heritage Day calls for friends and family to gather together and cook a hearty meal on the braai. This year, break away from the traditional pap, broedtjies and vleis by trying out this chicken tagine and saffron couscous recipe from Safaris and Spices (Jacana Media), R320, by Nico Verster. Historically, a Berber Moroccan dish is cooked over hot coals, so make this your braai day surprise.
