Braaivleis in Brooklyn

Seeking all local braaiers.

If the word requires no explanation, and if you live in Brooklyn, or if you know any South Africans living in the hood who cook meat on coals, please contact me.

I van' to talk vit you.



  1. Hmmm...Michael is an extraordinarily gifted cooker of meat (and fish) on real coals (no briquets, please) but he is neither South African nor does he live in Brooklyn. Alas.

  2. meemsnyc - itwas, and long ago, sniff

    Ellen - lucky you. Yes, I do need bonafide SAfricans, though. Tell me if you find any. I'm grilling sardines tonight. Hope they don't stick to the grid.

  3. Are you looking for a boerewors recipe? I had a friend here who (years ago) made her own and I may be able to dig up the recipe.

    Sorry we aren't in Brooklyn.

  4. Thanks Anonymoose - I'm looking for actual people doing the braaing, to talk to...Can't say more yet! I do have some boerewors recipes. Gosh, I wish that was available here.

  5. African Hut do have boerewors, but you have to pay for next day air shipping to get it:

  6. Thank you! This is a perfect gift for Vincent, who becomes misty-eyed at the memory of boerewors past.
