Such a great post from my friend over at the Slowvelder blog!
I was living in Dunedin, New Zealand, in 2005 when the All Blacks took the Tri Nations championship away from the Springboks. It was one of the best sporting events I’ve ever witnessed (it was my first time at a professional rugby game). But the real beauty was the argument one of my Maori friends got into with a Springbok fan after the game. The guy from South Africa said that the Springboks might have been beaten but at least they knew how to cook with fire (braai). My Maori friend vehemently defended the Maori art of the hangi. It just about came to an all out fist fight… all over who’s method of fire cooking was more manly, and therefore superior.
Naturally, we ladies know better.
