Tomorrow is national Heritage day, which actually started its life out as a Kwa-Zulu Natal holiday focused on King Shaka. It’s now been appropriated, in the spirit of unity, as National Braai. I’m certain that it was somehow mandated by South Africa’s meat industry, but I digress; who doesn’t love a braai..except for those pale waifish vegans, of course.

In the spirit of Braai day…and because I like sitting around a fire drinking beer, I’ll be spending much of tomorrow flipping steaks, lamb chops, pork rashers and ‘n klein bietjie wors (what? I’m Asian!) on a nicely heated grill. If I can find ‘em, I’ll be grabbing a few skilpadjies too; minced up lamb’s liver parcels wrapped in the caul fat. They’re just fantastic on a braai. The stuff will drive your cholesterol through the roof and may lead to a heart attack, but by god it’s delicious.

What’s your favourite bit of stuff to throw on a braai?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
