As a child I didn’t like carrots and still don’t really like cooked carrots. I have heard about carrot cake, but I had no idea what to think of it. A cake with carrots? That couldn’t be very tasty!
In 2010 I volunteered via VSO in Namibia. When I met Jaco I quickly became one of his family. This meant that I was also introduced to their food and one dish in particular, boerewors. This is a traditional South African sausage and delicious, especially when prepared on the BBQ, better known to them as a braai and it’s huge.
Back in Namibia Jaco’s parents would make the boerewors themselves, but since we have been back in The Netherlands we haven’t been able to enjoy it as much as we would like. It is quit hard to get a hold of, but one of the places that you can, is Die Spens in Amersfoort.
About 2 weeks ago summer finally arrived in Holland and we decided to celebrate by having a BBQ. We picked out a nice pick-nick spot on the grass behind our apartment building and set up our Little Pink Braai!
