Heritage day is (Wikipedia)"...when South Africans celebrate the diverse cultural heritage that makes up a "rainbow nation". It is the day to celebrate the contribution of all South Africans to the building of South Africa"
Heritage Day has fondly become known as "Braai (BBQ) Day" and what better way to spend a holiday than having a good old South African Braai! A few key ingredients of course!
The best part of our South African heritage is something sweet after dinner. "Malva Poeding" - a rich, sponge pudding made with apricot jam - soft and spongy, served with ice-cream or custard! The perfect way to end a truly South African meal.
With all our problems, we remain a proud and happy nation. A country full of friendly faces, and warm, welcoming folk, who love to have anyone visit their homes. A country which is full of surprises - who wouldn't be when you have 11 official languages!
