Recipe of the Day: Marinated Lamb Kebabs With Mango Salsa 
What You'll Need:
1kg 2cm lamb cubes (shoulder or leg)
1 large onion, quartered
2 red sweet peppers, seeded and chopped
2 green peppers, seeded and chopped
100ml avocado oil (may substitute with olive oil)
4ml salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
10ml ground cumin
2.5ml ground ginger
8 cloves garlic, crushed
10ml finely grated lemon rind
250ml natural yoghurt
5ml freshly ground black pepper
125ml avocado oil
10ml paprika
1 large mango, peeled and cubed 
1 red chilli, seeded and chopped
1 red onion, peeled and cubed
60ml Italian parsley, chopped
30ml avocado oil
30ml fresh lemon juice
Marinade: 1. Mix all the ingredients and add the lamb cubes. Combine thoroughly and rub the marinade into the meat with your fingertips. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 2 hours. Kebabs: 1. Separate the onion quarters. 2. Remove the meat cubes from the marinade and alternately thread the meat, onion and peppers onto skewers. 3. If braaing, coat the grid with avocado oil, or grill under a preheated grill until golden brown and cooked to your preference. 4. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Salsa: 1. Mix all the ingredients and serve with the kebabs
Recipe of the Day: Basil Pesto Chicken.
What You’ll Need:
1 chicken
1 tub basil pesto
3 cloves garlic
1 lemon
Take your tub of pesto and tuck it under the skin of the chicken.
Really push it back all the way up onto the breasts, thighs and drumsticks.
Stuff the chicken with the lemon (cut into 4) and garlic cloves (roughly chopped).
Let it marinade for at least 1/2 an hour.
Season the chicken skin with salt and pepper and place on a medium heat braai.
A weber is best for this as it crisps the skin so well and for best results, stand the chicken up on a beer can with half the beer in it. (Remove the lemon from the cavity if you are doing this.)
The chicken should be ready after about an hour.
Recipe of the Day: Garlic And Lemon Lamb Chops
What You'll Need:
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 ml freshly chopped rosemary
100ml lemon juice
5ml freshly ground black pepper
20 ml olive oil
8 lamb chops
1. Mix crushed garlic, rosemary, lemon juice, black pepper and olive oil together. Pour over chops and marinate for 15 to 20 minutes. 
2. Cook over medium coals on the braai or under a medium-hot grill for about four minutes on each side. Don't overcook otherwise the chops will become tough. 
3. Season with salt and serve with baked potatoes and veggies or salad.
Recipe of the Day: Braai Slaai
What You’ll Need:
A pack of tasty, thick boerewors
1 punnet rosa or cherry tomatoes
1 medium onion with it’s skin on.
1 yellow pepper, halved and deseeded
2 mealie cobs, sliced into rounds
Mixed lettuce leaves of your choice
Olive oil and balsamic vinegar
First off, make sure that the holes in your braai grid are small enough to hold the little tomatoes, otherwise you’ll lose them to the flames.
Get your fire to medium heat, put your onion directly into the coals (no foil required, the skin will protect it) and pop your boerewors and mealie cobs onto the grid. When the meat is starts browning on the outside, put the tomatoes and peppers on, skin side down. Keep turning over your veggies and mealie cobs; they should have a good, even colour. Watch your tomatoes closely, you don’t want them so soft that you can’t pick them up in one piece.
Their skins should split but they should still be firm. 
Put your lettuce leaves in a bowl and dress with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. When soft and browned, slice your pepper halves and toss them into the leaves with the tomatoes. When ready, chop or break your boerewors into bite-size chunks and add to the salad. Peel the now-blackened skin off your onion, quarter it, peel apart the layers and drop them in. Serve your salad with the mealie rounds on the side. Easy as that!
Recipe of the Day: Braai Bake
What You'll Need:
2.5 litres water
30 ml margarine
5 ml baking powder
250 ml cream
1 sachet Knorr Pap Mix Cheese Flavour
1000 ml maize meal
500 ml grated cheese
Chopped parsley for garnish
Fill a pot with 2l of water, add Knorr Pap Mix and margarine and bring to the boil. Meanwhile mix the maize meal together with the remaining water, then stir into the pot and simmer until cooked. Scoop pap into a casserole dish, sprinkle with grated cheese and pour over the cream. Bake at 180°C for 15–20 min or until cheese has melted and the cream has thickened. Garnish with chopped parsley
Recipe of the Day: Classic BraaiBroodjies 
What You’ll Need:
Sliced Tomato
Butter your bread on both sides. Then make you sandwich filling with the cheese, onion, tomato and chutney. Season lightly with salt and pepper and place on the braai until golden brown on both sides.
