Welcome to my Traditional African and South African recipes. 

This started off with the Elephant Stew recipe, mainly as a joke, but soon expanded to something big as I became interested in our traditional recipes and found more to add to the site. I have now become a collector and would like to see this section eventually become a comprehensive collection of our Traditional Recipes.  I find the old family recipe scrapbooks an invaluable source of information and am thankful that they weren't trashed in the many "spring cleanings" that we regularly have! If you happen to have a traditional recipe that I don't have here, please email it to me, I will always have space for one more!
