Lamb Potjie

The cuisine of South Africa is sometimes called "rainbow cuisine", as it has had a variety of multicultural sources and stages. 
The South African cuisine as it is today has resulted from several years of colonization and  immigration introduced during the colonial period by white European people like the Dutch,  German, French, Italian, Greek and British and their Indo-Asian slaves or servants.
