Boerewors and Beans for Braai Day
Issued by Caro Communications - Sep 18th 2017, 15:32
On 24 September, we celebrate National Heritage Day in South Africa. It is a day where we can get together and celebrate our rich heritage by uniting around fires and enjoying some delicious food. For this reason, it was declared a public holiday. With the 24th falling on a Sunday this year and the public holiday being moved to the Monday, what better way is there to enjoy the long weekend than with beans and boerewors and a braai with friends and family? As South Africans, we all know that fires and good food mean celebrations.
