With a 40% rise in gas braai sales in 2013 alone, it looks like South Africa is moving to gas braais too. They are simple and convenient to use, and they are much cleaner to operate than their smoke-belching cousins. Switch on, set the heat where you want it, and you can cook for hours.
The idea for a book called Cooking with Gas came from Jean’s ongoing research into the art of cooking outdoors. Looking for new and interesting techniques or recipes leads him to the cookbook section of local bookstores more often than he would care to admit. However, he noticed a definite lack of good books on how to use gas braais.
The best he was able to find was a string of titles on gas barbecues. Most of them were either American or Australian titles. The thing is, those foreign devils cook differently from us. What they use their “barbie” for is quite different from what South Africans want to cook when they get together for a braai. In the spirit of Braai the Beloved Country, he has created a book that shows you how to cook the old favourites and experiment with new techniques.
