The term ‘South African Cuisine’ incorporates the foods of countless traditions and cultures that have called our sweet land “home”. This #HeritageDay, a holiday set aside to celebrate the beauty and diversity of South African people, we’ve prepared a special menu to keep your taste buds tingling, your appetites filled – and your appreciation for South African cuisine at an all-time high.

Breakfast, Lunch and Tea

Our perfect Heritage Day menu begins at breakfast. This delectable cornbread, made with #HulettsWhiteSugar is enough to fill the morning and sweet enough to set a mood for the day. Link to recipe.

    Huletts was the brand of choice for my Mom when we grew up, and it still is for my household now. I have such a great love for baking and it makes me feel closer to Mom who’s now late. She taught me how to bake when I was a teen. The Christmas, Easter, birthday events would not be the same without Huletts.
    I love that it’s accessible, as I grew up in Swaziland and Mom could always access it but even though my family is now based in Joburg it’s still accessible.
    Surely makes life sweeter!

    Things that make me proudly South African- being a Durbanite our beautiful coastline/beaches, the many world heritage sites, our stunning weather, our spirit of Ubuntu & our food ! We love good food – I love how we embrace each other’s cultures & traditional foods that have become South African staples – Bunny Cow, Braai, Shisa Nyama, Samp, steamed bread, milk tart, locally produced award winning wines & my favourite biltong! These are the things that make me proudly South African ????????

    There are so many things that make me the Proudest South African. We have amazing varieties of foods,like hot bunny chow that will have you reaching for jugs of water to walkie talkies to mopane worms and some of the best desserts with each having a remarkable story behind it. Our dance is unique, even if you have two left feet, once the beat gets you, you can’t stop moving. We have song, drums, art, the Big 5 and together we stand proud as a rainbow nation. I love our language because only us South Africans can understand things like “Eish”, “Eina” or a lekker Braaivleis???? I will always stay true to my heritage and fly our South African Flag high ???????????????????????? #GrownWithkindness Huletts SA
