Die Kombuis

Die Kombuis In South African tradition the kombuis (kitchen) is an important part of the house. We’ve brought Die Kombuis across the miles to share the tradition!

In 1652, a Dutch expedition of settlers under the command of Jan van Riebeeck founded the first permanent settlement in South Africa near the Cape of Good Hope. Among other valuable traditions and goods, they brought the Dutch language to South Africa, which over the years evolved into Afrikaans. Kombuis is the Afrikaans word for kitchen, in Dutch it goes a little further and refers to a kitchen on a ship. An interesting way to look at how Dutch influenced today's Afrikaans language. Our goal is to unite South Africans and encourage non-South Africans with heart for the country to get together. We organize events and sell (home-made) South African products, so that the rich South African culture is spread to all parts of the world.

Het jul geweet dat wanneer in Nederland 'n baba gebore word, dat hul n koekje met sprinkels eet? Dit noem hul "beschuit met muisjes" - dit is tradisie wanneer mense kom kuier om na baba te kom kyk.

Stay tuned for the latest in #SouthAfrican culture... in The Netherlands!

Die Kombuis has been on the back burner for a while, but after visiting South Africa in October – unfortunately just for a week – I felt a need to blow new life into this initiative.

6. Hijacking cars is a profession
7. Defecating in a garden can win you R1-million
8.You can pay your tuition fees by holding up a sign at a traffic light
9.The petrol in your tank may be worth more than your car
10. More people vote in a local reality TV show than in a local election
11.People have the most wonderful names: Christmas, Goodwill, Pretty, Wednesday, Blessing, Brilliant, Gift, Precious, Innocence, Samsung and Airtime.
12. "Now now" can mean anything from a minute to a month!
13. You continue to wait after a traffic light has turned to green to make way for taxis travelling in the opposite direction.
14. Travelling at 120 km/h you're the slowest vehicle on the highway
15.You're genuinely and pleasantly surprised whenever you find your car parked where you left it.
16. A bullet train is being introduced but we can't fix potholes
17. The last time you visited the coast you paid more in speeding fines and toll fees than you did for the entire holiday
18. You paint your cars registration on the roof
19. Half your mail is guaranteed to reach its destination
20. You have to take your own linen with you if you are admitted to a government hospital
21. You dial a toll free number and nobody answers
22. You have to prove that you don't need a loan to get one
23. Prisoners go on strike.
24. You don't stop at a red traffic light, in case somebody hijacks your car.

28. The employees DANCE in front of the building to show how unhappy they are.
29. The SABC advertises and shows highlights of the program you just finished viewing.

32. You stop at robots, not traffic lights.
33. You know what Rooibos Tea is, even if you've never had any.
34. You can sing your national anthem in four languages, and you have no idea what it means in any of them.
35. You know someone who knows someone who has met Nelson Mandela.
36. You go to "braais" (barbecues) regularly, where you eat boerewors (long meaty sausage-type thing) and swim, sometimes simultaneously.
