The first and foremost important thing about a braai is the braai buddy! (or Father ). This is where friends come together, mess around, create recipes and make memorable moments. I’m a cook and I know nothing about making fires outside and creating lots of flames which is why I need braai buddies. Here is my friend’s husband, Louw. He is my braai buddy. My friend and I were in the kitchen -kitchen buddies – creating and making extras to go with all that good meat!
There is of course lots of beer and wine at a braai. Some of it goes over the meat, some of it is drunk and most of the time we just laugh and mess around. These are never boring times!
The first dish Lorraine and I ‘invented’ we called mushroom moments.
Large portabello mushrooms
Grated cheddar cheese
Grated mozzarella cheese
Olive oil to drizzle
Place your mushrooms in an oven proof dish, cap side down.
Drizzle over olive oil.
Slice your cherry tomatoes in half lengthwise. Place these all round the inside of the mushroom cap, around the stem so that they fit snugly.
Top with grated cheddar and mozzarella.
Place in pre-heated oven, 180C, and bake for about 20 minutes until mushrooms are soft and cheese has melted.
