Now that Spring is in the air and there is (mostly) sunshine and warmth coming our way... it's time to start getting your braai grids ready and rearing to go for the Summer ahead. 

Braais in South Africa are (very generally) synonymous with potato salads and who could complain? The carby moreish-ness of the humble spud, combined with a char-grilled chop is one of life's greatest joys.
