    How to Cook dishes from South Africa


    South Africa South Africa is sometimes known as the "Rainbow Nation", a term coined by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and later adopted by then President Nelson Mandela, which encapsulates the diversity of the country's peoples and cultures. This diversity is also reflected in South African cuisine, which includes cookery practised by indigenous people including the Khoisan, Sotho- and Xhosa-speaking peoples, settler cookery introduced by people of Afrikaner and British descent, the cuisine of the Cape Malay people (people who came from Malaysia and Indonesia, and and introduced many dishes influenced by Malaysian cuisine), and the cuisine of people of Indian descent (influenced by Indian cuisine). Additionally, South African cuisine has taken influences from that of neighboring countries, and this can most clearly been in some dishes that contain traces of Portuguese cuisine - Angola and Mozambique both having been former Portuguese colonies.

    Some popular South African recipes and dishes include:
    • Biltong - Salty, dried, meat (beef, game, or even ostrich), similar to jerky.
