    I did a SA themed dinner party last year - big hit... This is what I served:
    apps:
    biltong (dried meat)
    various dried fruits
    various fruits chutneys (onion sambal, chile jam, mixed fruit)
    crackers
    dinner:
    bobotie
    Geelrys - yellow rice w/ raisins
    steamed corn bread
    bitter greens salad
    dessert:
    soetkoekies (walnut cookies)
    koeksisters
    brandy soaked fruit - apricots, bananas, etc

    There are lots of great references on the web. Have fun!

      i've had this recipe. it's a nice custardy texture with a mild curry/turmeric flavor. nice side dish with more heavily flavored meats maybe. i don't remember the pinotage she served it with, but it also had a softer texture in the mouth.
