South African People and Food
South Africa is also called the "Rainbow Nation" because of so many different languages being spoken and different cultural traditions lived. Most people speak at least two or three languages, one of them usually English or Afrikaans.
Like its inhabitants, also the food the people eat in South Africa is very diverse. The South African staple food for the locals is mealies, which is corn, and seasonal vegetables like potatoes, beans, carrots, and peas.
Typical South African food:
1. Bobotie: typical Cape Malay food containing rice, lamb, and fragrant spices
2. Koeksisters: tastes like donuts soaked in sticky sweet sauce
3. Mealie pap: corn porridge
4. Biltong: a cured and dried meat that is a typical South African snack and similar to beef jerky
