The rainbow nation on a plate

South Africa is known for many things, not least of all its variety. This variety extends from its cultures and languages to the arts, crafts and cuisine that South Africans enjoy. This is a land of flavours, colours, sounds and magnificent people, which all come together to create what is affectionately known as our Rainbow Nation.

Food has always been a very important part of the culture and identity of any country or community. It creates a social platform on which families and friends can meet and enjoy time together; whether around a traditional dinner table or around the fire under the open African skies.

Some foods have religious relevance, and are used as part of worship or religious festivals, making it an integral part of the technical culture. Food brings people together, regardless of colour, language or belief system. And this is what needs to be celebrated.

Because food is a major part of cultural identity, and South Africa is home to so many cultures, this country boasts an enormous variety of traditional dishes, made from locally sourced ingredients.
