Day 28: The Cape of Africa

The food from South Africa, like the food from many countries on trade routes, tells the history of the country through the flavors.  With eleven official languages, three capital cities, a mega-diverse ecological environment, and cross-cultural interactions with more than a dozen nations from without and within, South African food presents a unique culinary experience.
