South Africa is known as the “rainbow nation” for its diversity of cultures and landscapes. The foods popular in this fascinating country are just as diverse, with many reflecting a cultural exchange between the various ethnic groups living in this country. From Afrikaners living in the rural Western Cape to hipsters in urban Johannesburg, South African society reflects a tremendous diversity of races, classes, and cuisines that have borrowed from each other. Here are just a few to whet your appetite!
If you want to try these foods for yourself, you can study abroad for a semester in South Africa through the KU Study Abroad Office. For more information, visit this website or stop by the Study Abroad Info Center in 105 Lippincott.
