Nothing sounds more inviting than the word “braai”. Popular amongst many South Africans, it is what can be called “the way of life” and it does not mean just throwing meat on the fire and hoping for the best, but a ritual that brings people together in joy, laughter and indulging in a tasty meal.
Heritage Month is here and the team at Nedeburg’s The Manor in Paarl has a great reason to dust off their braai equipment because you are invited to come and celebrate all things braai with them over the next couple of weekends.
The Manor’s team of chefs will be getting the fires starting from 12pm (until 14:30) on Saturday, 18 September, and repeat this braai experience every weekend thereafter (depending on weather), including the Friday of the Heritage Day long weekend on September 24 – 26, up until the weekend of October 9 – 10.
Are your taste buds ready for some mouth-watering thoughts? Here’s what you can expect:
The Braai Menu:
The Crowd Pleaser – R25
Boerie roll, with your favourite sauce, tomato & onion smoor, or caramelised onions
The Free State Vegetarian – R125
Grilled chicken & bell pepper kebab, boerewors, garlic & herb butter roll, salty potato fries, and a chef’s garden salad
The Full House – R165
A-grade sliced beef rump, spiced Karoo lamb chop, grilled chicken & bell pepper kebab, boerewors, garlic & herb butter roll, salty potato fries, and a chef’s garden salad
(The Manor sources its meat from Deli-Co Farmstyle Butchery in Riebeek Kasteel, so rest assured that they’ll be serving you the very best in ethically sourced meat.)
A wide range of Nederburg’s award-winning wines, including its popular Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 (a great match with a braai), and a selection of ciders, beers and soft drinks will be served from a bar set up on the lawn outside the historic manor house.
There’ll also be free live music on offer, to set a laid-back mood and get you swaying to some sweet tunes:

- October 2: Craig Vee

Picnic blankets and cushions will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be some fun lawn games for young and old, and loads of space for the young ones to shake off some energy.
