In South Africa, a potjiekos /ˈpɔɪkiːkɒs/, literally translated "small-pot food", is a dish prepared outdoors. It is traditionally cooked in a round, cast iron, three-legged pot, the potjie, descended from the Dutch oven brought from the Netherlands to South Africa in the 17th century and found in the homes and villages of people throughout southern Africa.The pot is heated using small amounts of wood or charcoal or, if fuel is scarce, twisted grass or even dried animal dung.
We got to enjoy this tradition in Antigua at Grest Bird Island where South African cruisers from Yacht "out of Africa" prepared it on the beach.
It was a fun filled afternoon of exploring the little Island, catching up with other cruisers and enjoying great food.
