South Africa celebrates National Braai Day on 24 September every year. A day for all the citizens of South Africa to unite around braai fires with family and friends. The driving force behind this initiative is a man known as Jan Braai.
If anyone knows how to braai, it is Jan. He has braaied with thousands of South Africans, almost every day for the five years since the launch of National Braai Day. And he knows what people want to know about braaing.
‘I like T-Bone steaks, because they are in the shape of Africa.’
Desmond Tutu, Patron of National Braai Day
