It began in Africa…

Fire! South Africans are obsessed with it. It’s a cooking staple as common as flour or rice. You’re not having a proper meal until you’ve lit up a few logs and singed meat on their screeching hot embers. In South Africa, a “braai”, the local version of a barbecue, is a cultural phenomenon as popular as rugby. The locals take their braais very seriously: good wood, big hunks of meat, cooked properly over fire. Here at Flame we emulate the Braai with searing hot specialised grills, charring the edges to perfection and producing the aroma around town that leads your nose to Flame.
