Loosely meaning burnt meat (in the Zulu language), shisanyama is much more than a cooking technique. It embodies the warm and inviting spirit of South Africa while celebrating culture, community and an explosion of fantastic flavors over blazing barbecue.

Imagine succulent cuts of marinated meat sizzling on a fiery grill, while traditional side dishes like pap (a corn porridge) and chakalaka (a spicy vegetable relish) are also prepared for the feast to come. Now add stories, laughter and aromatic scents wafting through the air, while lively music and a lively atmosphere create anticipation for the delicious dish that will be served.

Yes, it’s not just a meal; it is a common event that must be shared by everyone.

Shisanyama is an opportunity to unite in the joy of food, family, friendship and festivities. It is an age-old ritual where the barbecue becomes a scene of cultural exchange, forging bonds that go well beyond the dining table.
