What do you get when you pit braaimasters against each other in contest and promise the winner some awesome prizes? Well, some great tasting meat of course and also the plot for Thys die BosveldKlong‘s new TV show: Bring & Braai.
“Bring en Braai” is the first braai competition done for SA television. In each episode 2 contestants braai a starter, main course and dessert. Each contestant is given free reign as to what they want to prepare (as long as they don’t use gas or electricity). The show sees Thys (the show’s presenter) and the contestants along with some guest judges cruise the country (and sometimes even neighbouring countries) in search of adventure – and of course the ultimate braaimaster.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to join the guys on the episode that was filmed at the Voortrekker monument as a guest judge and show off some braai skills of my own. Follow me on FaceBook or Twitter and I’ll let you know when the episode with me in it will be showing.
