Potjiekos Favourites, Sanne Smit

Potjiekos means ”food cooked in an African cast-iron pot” – a potjie. In South Africa, it also means a feast! Meat in different forms, chicken, shellfish, and vegetarian – you can cook everything in a potjie! You can even bake bread and make delicious desserts. Here we are inspired to cook food that won prizes in different ”potjiekos-competitions” in South Africa. We find out how to do it and what ingredients to use. Beautiful colour photos tempt us to try this relaxing form of cooking - perhaps in a beautiful spot accompanied by good friends!
