We invited people from Carnarvon to donate their favourite recipes. It is a nice way to remember friends, for you will always think of them when you use their favourite recipe. Not all recipes originated in the Karoo, but they are recipes used by people of the Karoo. Quite a few may even have originated overseas and I believe many may have come to South Africa with the colourful array of immigrants and even slaves in the early history of our country.
Bakoond – an outside wood-burning oven
Boerewors – a spicy farm sausage
Braai – a barbecue
Potjie – a stew, slow-cooked in an iron pot over an open fire.
Sosaties – meat kebabs, usually with a curry sauce
