BUSH CHEFS PRESENTING OUTDOOR COOKING CLASS
You can learn the great skill of outdoor cooking in Africa with our Safari Cooking Class. This class will enable you to use limited resources in the Africa wilderness to prepare a great tasting meal, anywhere anytime.
Whether you are a great outdoor cook or a wanna-be, this is the class for you. We are an award winning competition outdoor meals team and have taught several students how to prepare great authentic Southern Africa (Braaivleis) Outdoor Meals using our simplified cooking techniques. Our guiding principal is to have all our students leave our class with the knowledge and confidence to cook great Outdoor Meals anytime anywhere. Besides providing solid instruction, we designed our class to be a fun, hands-on experience where students spend the day cooking from breads, vegetables, meats and more, shoulder-to-shoulder with us pros, using open fire, gas and other alternative methods.
Our Outdoor Chefs takes tremendous pleasure in teaching, hosting and passing on the South African cuisine and culture of Braaivleis, Braai sandwiches, Pot Bread, and Potjie (not stew). All aspiring Outdoor Chefs love this class!!!
Travelling into Africa has its own perils - you are not always sure whether you will access to fresh water and there are restrictions in various countries on the movement of foodstuff, especially raw meat, dairy and poultry products. Somewhere you might get stuck as a result of foodstuff being confiscated due to animal disease control measures like Mouth-and-foot-disease [MFD] or even a disease like Rift Valley Fever or swine flu or bird flu.
Setting up a picnic at a game reserve is always fun and above we have a couple of ideas.
It is of no use getting upset with the Police or veterinary officials at road blocks or veterinary control gates if they do confiscate your foodstuffs - they are simply doing their jobs. The secret is in doing proper planning for your meals, water and beverages on safari.
South Africans are known for their love for "braaivleis en pap" [barbeque and a maize/corn porridge]. And if you take away their meat they get very upset.
Safari meals or dinners do not have to consist of meat related dishes - you can be stylish by pre-cooking a lot of your meals and freeze it. Normally only raw meats are confiscated and once you have pre-cooked it, it will not be confiscated.
When planning for foodstuff or meals on safari try those foodstuff that has the least weight - use dry foods like pastas, maize, soups, dry bread mix to bake your own "potjie" bread etc.
Some of our recipes are in Afrikaans so if you need it in English drop us an email and we will gladly send it to you.
