He likes nothing better than slapping some meat on the fire, reaching for the tongs and braaiing with his buddies.
Turn that love into a business idea and you have Justin Bonello’s The Ultimate Braai Master – a new reality show hosted by the charming Cape Town-based foodie.
The series takes viewers all over South Africa as two-person teams travel from the banks of the Orange River to the plains of the Karoo and the sands of the Wild Coast and KwaZulu-Natal, pitting their braai skills against one another and vying for the judges’ approval.
At stake is R50 000 in cash, a Renault Koleos 4x4 worth R325 000, a Cadac BraaiMaxx worth R15 000 and the title of 2012’s Ultimate Braai Master for the winning team.
