Heritage Day – a.k.a Braai Day

We have a wonderful holiday in South Africa on the 24 September each year called Heritage Day a.k.a. Braai Day.   It is a well-loved day because not only does it celebrate the diverse cultures of South Africa – it also signifies the start of our glorious summers!

Braai’s (by definition – a social meeting, including the cooking of meat on an outdoor grill) are lit by South Africans from all cultures and creeds and families and friends get together to spend quality time with each other and enjoy their favourite recipes and flavours.

This year, we at Pauli’s Food Co teamed up with Munching Mongoose – an awesome company that sources and gathers great food and delivers straight to their customers doors – for Heritage Day.   Our delicious sauces were included in their foodie boxes with other great Braai Day ingredients.   One of our much loved recipe for the Braai is to use our Tasty Tomali Relish and marinade Lamb Chops with them… the result – an empty plate!

Tomali Basted Chops.jpgIngredients:

600 g Lamb Saddle Chops; Maldon Salt; 150g Pauli’s Tomali; Some hot coals ready to braai!

Method:

Using a basting brush, spread the Tomali over each chop on both sides.  Generously sprinkle the salt over the chops.  Leave to rest in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Tip – place the basting brush in a jug close to the Braai so that you can use the excess Tomali from the dish to re-baste when turning the chops.

When the Braai is ready – place the chops onto the grid and cook on one side for about 4 minutes.  Turn and re-baste using the excess Tomali.  Repeat until the chops are cooked to your liking.  Serve hot and enjoy!

Eat.  Spread.  Love.  Pauli’s Sauces.

Simple breakfast of Camberbet and Saffron 

This morning I made a simple, scrumptious breakfast using our royal Chutney, Pauli’s Saffron Chilli Chutney and a camberbet cheese wheel.  It took less than 5 minutes to prepare and cook and was so yummy!


Ingredients:

1 small Camberbet cheese wheel (sliced into two – one wheel can make two portions)

1 tablespoon of Pauli’s Saffron Chilli Chutney

Serve with scrambled eggs or eat as a starter

Method:

Slice the cheese wheel into two separate pieces and then slice the one portion into two (through the middle)

Spread the Pauli’s Saffron Chilli Chutney on top of the cheese wheel

Close the cheese wheel and fry on a low heat in a small frying pan – about 1 minute a side and then flip over and fry the other side

Season with salt and black pepper and serve with scrambled egg.  Or serve as a starter to a gourmet meal. 

Simply scrumptious!


Yours in Good Food
