Bank Holiday braai
A barbecue is what we Brits traditionally have on a wet Bank Holiday Weekend. A smoking little pit filled with charcoal that no matter how much meths you squirt on, it refuses to catch until you lean over it, cremating both your eyebrows and guaranteeing your sausages have that ‘caramelised outer with raw inner’ finish, that we all know and love.
Not this weekend.
No, this weekend, we are taking the humble BBQ and cranking it up 1000%. So holster that bag of charcoal and prepare to cook meat South African style.
Dig out your tongs, locate your umbrella and take part in the Great British Braai Off.
Great British Braai Off
We’re running a national campaign to get you, the Great British public, to braai with a bottle of fine South African wine and post your efforts on social media over the second May Bank Holiday weekend, 23-24 May, 2020, in support of the South African Wine industry.
Throughout our ongoing season of #isowinetasting we’ve met a wealth of wine producers, heard all about their vineyards and drunk their wines. It’s been a wild ride, who would’ve thought staying in could be so much fun?
But if we can pull this off, if we can have households up and down our fair land simultaneously cooking over a braai while swigging some absolutely delicious South African wine in the ULTIMATE isolation wine tasting, then we will have achieved our greatest feat this side of COVID-19.
Not sure how to braai?
Not to fear, we’ve asked five of our South African winemakers, plus a special guest, to join Elliot live (over on his insta account – @elliotawin), while cooking their favourite braai dishes and telling us about their favourite wines to accompany them.
“Elliot will also be demonstrating his cooking skills on the braai – live streaming with fire and wine, what could possibly go wrong?”Grab a case (or a bottle of fine South African wine), light the braai and join us at 4pm on Sunday 24th May. Post your efforts on social media using #GBbraaiOff and #SpectacularSouthAfrica.
