Winter braai tips
With winter in full swing and most of us cooped up in our houses, Jan says it’s the perfect opportunity to braai and keep warm. “It saves you money when you braai because besides cooking meat and braaibroodjies (my favourite), you can also make a delicious potjies as well as soups and fondue with leftover cheese in your fridge that you melt in the potjie pot,” explains Jan. Other winter braai tips that Jan recommends include using wood rather than coals and briquettes for a braai. “In that way you stimulate the local economy if you go out and buy the wood.”
Unity in our land
The 24th of September is Heritage Day aka National Braai Day and Jan isn’t going to let lockdown and the pandemic keep him from celebrating and promoting unity in our country.
“The big promotional events my team and I have planned for that day have been cancelled, but the spirit of the day is not lost and I will continue to promote it on the show and in my personal capacity,” says Jan. “Families, friends and individuals can still braai on the day and share it with their friends and family on social media and live Whatsapp and Zoom calls.”
Jan is also planning on distributing a braai fun packet full of knickknacks, toys and streamers with Braai Day branding that people can use on the day. “Nothing will stop the spirit behind Heritage Day and as long as we can unite behind a fire and a tjoppie, nothing will stop us from growing and being happy.”
