Chef Benny shares some tips on creating a great Shisanyama experience.

I always look for places that combine fresh, good quality meats and ingredients.

They should offer a variety of meats, sides and entertainment to suit all tastes and the beer should always be cold!

Chef Benny shares tips on creating your own Shisanyama experience at home

  1. Your three essential ingredients include: great company, great food and100% pure beer.
  1. The secret to creating great Shisanyama starts with getting the fire right. Once you have a good fire going the rest is easy.
  1. Get the temperature of the fire right with the palm test. If your palm feels too hot the fire is ready, if you can keep it there for five seconds or more, the temperature is too low – either lower the grill closer to the fire or add hot coals.
  2. Buy the best quality meat available for your budget and keep at room temperature at least 30 minutes prior to braaing.

Chef Benny’s recipe for crumbed mealie pap is one for the books.

Simply cook pap with sweetcorn, veg stock, butter and parsley. Once cool, cut into cubes and dust with flour, dip in the egg mix and coat with panko crumbs, before deep frying.
