If you set foot on South African soil, don’t leave before you’ve enjoyed a traditional al fresco braai, as much for the barbecued food as for the cultural experience.

The opener to your Christmas dinner will set the tone for your meal, whether it’s a smart fennel and lobster salad dotted with pomegranate or roast squash filled with oozing goats’ cheese, with rustic bread for dipping. You may want to start as you mean to go on; with plenty of meat like our Vietnamese pork balls, or you might prefer something a bit lighter, in the way of smoked salmon, crab or lobster. We’ve got plenty of seafood options that your guests will love and that range from really quick and simple to something a little more elaborate to really impress.
