Eat Sum More’s fine selection of BBQ meats – FLATTENED CHICKENS, BEEF BOEREWORS, CHICKEN BOEREWORS – are lovingly made from our family recipe which has been passed down for generations.

The select spices we use are directly related to the spice route that made its way around the Cape of Africa. My late father, Louis Slimowitz, had a number of butcheries in Klerksdorp and Stillfontein, and he always used to say again and again, “It’s all in the spices!”

We have worked hard and with relentless passion and integrity to raise the bar as we continue to provide you, our clients, with the freshest, sustainable, top-of-the-line, hand cut, traditional South African meat products that you’ve come to love over the years.

PLEASE NOTE = We do not ship frozen meats; in-store pick-up only.

EXPLORING THE DELICIOUS WORLD OF SOUTH AFRICAN CRACKERS, BISCUITS, AND COOKIES

South Africa boasts a rich culinary heritage, and its diverse array of crackers, biscuits, and cookies reflect the nation’s multicultural influences and vibrant flavors. From savory crackers perfect for cheese platters to sweet treats that satisfy any craving, South African snacks offer something for every palate.

One iconic South African cracker that we carry in our store is the Provita, a crispy whole wheat biscuit popular for its versatility. Whether enjoyed plain, topped with cheese or spreads, or dunked into soups and stews, Provitas are a staple in many South African households.

For those with a penchant for something more indulgent, South Africa’s biscuit scene is a delight. The classic Tennis Biscuit, with its distinctive coconut flavor and crunchy texture, is a beloved treat often used in desserts like the iconic South African Milk Tart.

Moving onto cookies, South Africa’s offerings are as diverse as its people. The Romany Cream, a chocolate-coconut biscuit sandwich filled with creamy chocolate, is a perennial favorite, offering a delightful combination of textures and flavors in every bite.

Another popular choice is the Marie Biscuit, a simple yet satisfying treat often enjoyed dipped in tea or used as a base for homemade desserts like the timeless Peppermint Crisp Tart.

But perhaps one of the most cherished South African cookies is the Ouma Rusks. Originating from the Dutch settlers, these double-baked biscuits are beloved for their hearty texture and comforting taste, making them the perfect accompaniment to a cup of Rooibos Tea.

Whether enjoyed as a snack on the go, a complement to a cheese platter, or a sweet indulgence after a meal, South African crackers, biscuits, and cookies continue to hold a special place in the hearts and taste buds of locals and visitors alike, embodying the diverse flavors and cultural tapestry of this beautiful nation.

From traditional Jewish foods to delicious sweets to everyday staple items, our Kosher groceries & snacks cater to a diverse array of culinary needs.

APRIL 22 IS EARTH DAY

earth day

Earth Day will be celebrated by millions of Canadians across our country, as well as everyone around the world on Monday, April 22nd – marking this holiday as the 54th anniversary of the very first Earth Day that was created way back in 1970.

The day is rejoiced around the world, by people from all walks of life who are concerned about making a sustainable future for their children. Events, parades, festivals and overall awareness campaigns mark the day, with the hope of preserving the environment for many generations to come.

The theme for Earth Day 2024 is “PLANET VS. PLASTICS”, which unites students, parents, businesses, governments, and individuals in an unwavering commitment to call for the end of plastics for the sake of human and planetary health – and demanding a 60% reduction in the production of plastics by 2040, with the ultimate goal of building a plastic-free future for generations to come.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

— Margaret Mead

From all of us here at Eat Sum More, we hope you have a very Happy Earth Day!

THE RICH HISTORY OF OUR DELICIOUS BILTONG

Biltong, a popular South African dried meat, boasts a rich history deeply rooted in the country’s cultural heritage. Its origins can be traced back to the indigenous Khoikhoi people, who used the region’s arid climate to preserve meat.

The word “biltong” itself has Dutch origins, with “bil” meaning buttock or hindquarter, and “tong” translating to strip or tongue. This reflects the traditional method of slicing meat into strips for drying. During the European colonization of Southern Africa in the 17th century, the Dutch settlers adapted and embraced the practice of preserving meat through drying.

Over the years, biltong evolved with the influence of various cultures. The spices and flavorings used in biltong recipes began to reflect the diverse culinary landscape of South Africa. The dried meat became a staple among explorers, trekkers, and later, the Boer settlers during the Great Trek in the 1830s.

Today, biltong is not just a snack; it’s a symbol of South Africa’s culinary heritage, representing the resourcefulness and adaptability of its people over centuries. The craft of making biltong has become an art, with variations in recipes and techniques passed down through generations, ensuring that this iconic South African treat continues to captivate taste buds around the world.

Eat Sum More has worked hard and with relentless passion and integrity to raise the bar as we continue to provide you, our clients, with the freshest, sustainable, top-of-the-line, hand cut, traditional South African biltong that you’ve come to love over the years.

THIS WEEKEND IS ST. PATRICK’S DAY – SOUTH AFRICAN STYLE!

St. Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of what it means to be Irish; the spirit, the determination, the creativity and the indefinable qualities that make the Irish people who they are.

Once a year, in cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg, the streets are filled with South Africans and tourists wearing strange green clothing and drinking green beer – a sign that St Patrick’s Day has arrived.

Here in Canada, we celebrate the holiday by day drinking and partaking in the celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, and a whole lot of green.

In the spirit of the holiday, here is a list of some GREEN Eat Sum More delicacies that you and your family & friends can enjoy on March 17th:

NATIONAL PUPPY DAY IS ON MARCH 23RD

Dogs are the most trusting, happy, joy-filled creatures on earth. On March 23rd we take time to stop and celebrate National Puppy Day. This holiday is celebrated every year in the hopes of improving the lives of puppies everywhere.

National Puppy Day seeks to celebrate the unconditional love that puppies bring to people’s lives. Puppies are young dogs. Depending on the breed, some can remain as puppies longer than others. This day aims to help save orphaned puppies across the globe by encouraging adoption.

doggie bites

The idea is to focus attention on puppies in need of adoption, and on the abuses found in puppy mills, but also to celebrate these furry little companions. According to statistics, people who have one or more pets in their homes lead happier lives, are considerably healthier, and live longer than those who don’t.

LET’S MAKE IT A DRY JANUARY!

After drinking all of the spiked eggnog you can stand and sipped the last of the New Year’s Eve bubbly, you might be looking for a much needed break from alcohol.

Enter Dry January – a time when many people choose to avoid booze for the whole month in order to reset the body into homeostasis.

Dry January appeals to those of you who may have noticed a pattern that you’re drinking a little bit more than you should, especially during the recent holiday season, and a month-long break could be the kick start you’re looking for to start off the New Year right.

So, instead of reaching for a beer or a shot of whiskey during this month, here are some of our delicious (and non-alcoholic) South African beverages you could enjoy instead:

fanta orange drink
rhodes fruit juices guava
roses lime cordial
STONEY GINGER BEER
nescafe ricoffy small

THE HISTORY OF MRS. H.S. BALL’S CHUTNEY SAUCES

Here is the story of how Mrs. Ball’s Chutney sauces came to be:

“Few lovers of the saucy Mrs. H.S. Ball’s Chutney will know that our recipe survived a shipwreck! In 1852, the SS Quanza was shipwrecked off East London, South Africa, en route from Canada to Australia. It was Captain Adkins and his wife who saved a blueprint for what was to become one of SA’s most unique and priceless culinary icons.

This secret recipe was passed on to their daughter, Amelia, in 1865, who later married Mr. Herbert Sandleton Ball. During 1914, demand for the wholesome, piquant and fruity flavour grew bigger and bigger. And soon the Ball kitchen was transformed into a makeshift production line. Mrs H.S. Ball’s Chutney was home, and ready to tickle the taste buds of chutney lovers across the globe.

A family name and soon to be the most loved chutney in South Africa, Mrs H.S. Ball’s Chutney was created with the Ball family crest on the top of the label. The Woodstock factory opened in 1917 to meet escalating demand, and our most-loved bottle started to travel around the world.”

Eat Sum More carries a wide variety of Mrs. Ball’s Chutney Sauces – and you can find them / buy them all in our Online Store:

CHILLI BITES

Our biltong chili bites, also known as peri-peri biltong stokkies, are great to have around the house and/or the office for when you are craving a quick snack. And the convenient re-sealable packaging also makes them great for when you are on the go, watching a live sporting event or even at the movies.

Eat Sum More chili bites are made of thin strips of our premium grade, biltong beef and marinated in imported South African biltong spice. We carefully select each piece of lean topside beef joints which are of the highest quality. The pieces are then left to marinade in order to absorb all the spices. The beef strips are then slowly air dried to perfection and then are cut into
thin chili bite strips.

Watch out, however as they are quite addictive!

Added bonus – our South African biltong chili bites are Ketogenic & Paleo friendly.

Come visit us at our store in Thornhill, Ontario (just North of Toronto) or order online to get your hands on these premium delicacies.

WHAT A GLOWING REVIEW OF OUR STORE!

Wow! A Ms. Dennis left this review for us online and we thought that we would share it with you… because we couldn’t be happier with her very kind words:

“A Great Store with Amazing Staff!!! I always enjoy the excellent customer service, friendly and welcoming demeanour of the staff and lekker conversation when shopping at eat sum more. They always go the extra mile ensuring you have a wonderful shopping experience and happy customer! The products are top notch, great quality and prices.

Shopping online is such a breeze and easy one with shipping that practically arrives as soon as you done placing your order! ok jokes aside i placed the order Sunday and it arrived early Wednesday morning which is pretty quick considering that lekker biltong smell that must have been pretty distracting for that driver delivering your package. And if you haven’t tasted their biltong or don’t know what I’m speaking of I suggest you order some biltong and droewors from eat sum more store then you’ll get it!

If you looking for a taste of South Africa you will not be disappointed when shopping at Eat Sum More.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SOUTH AFRICAN RUGBY TEAM!

rubgy team south africa
rugby

South Africa produced a magnificent defensive display to edge 14-man New Zealand 12-11 in a compelling arm-wrestle of a Rugby World Cup final and win the Webb Ellis Cup for a record fourth time.

The Springboks, led by man of the match Pieter-Steph du Toit, managed to hold firm under huge pressure over the final quarter and Handre Pollard’s four first-half penalties proved sufficient to add another title to those of 1995, 2007 and 2019. Chants of “ibuyile” (“It has returned”) rang out after the successful retention of the trophy and a record fourth victory in the competition.

South Africa had by far the hardest route to the final of facing the other five of the top six teams in the world rankings (Ireland, New Zealand, France, England and Scotland) losing narrowly to Ireland in the pool stage. And they won it the hard way showing supreme courage and determination to win all their three knock-out games by a single point.

Extraordinary victory!

Friday, September 29th is National Coffee Day.

So, where did coffee come from and how did it become so popular?

According to legend, a sixth-century Ethiopian goatherd named Kaldi discovered his goats frolicking from one coffee shrub to another. He realized the coffee berries had a stimulating effect, and he began to experiment with the seeds. A century later, brewed coffee emerged in Arabia and the popularity of coffee grew at an exponential rate.

Here at Eat Sum More, we have a wide selection of South African coffees for your drinking pleasure – Koffiehuis Medium Roast Coffee, Frisco Original Coffee, Nescafe Ricoffy and Freezo Classic to name a few.

Now that the weather has really warmed up here in Ontario, it’s time to kick the last few weeks of summer into full gear – and what better way to do so than taking a trip to the beach?

Planning a beach day to one of Toronto’s amazing beaches is the perfect mini-getaway you have been craving after spending so much time indoors! Many of Toronto’s waterfront parks have sand or cobble beaches for you to enjoy. Come soak up the wonderful lakeside atmosphere; have a delicious family picnic; or take part in some friendly beach volleyball!

One major tip – pack lots of fluids and drinks – in the heat, it’s easy to become dehydrated without even knowing it.

Eat Sum More has a delicious selection of all of your favorite South African beverages to cool you down while you are enjoying the sunshine on the beach:

AUGUST 9TH WAS NATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY IN SOUTH AFRICA!

womens day

In 1956, around 20,000 women of all races and religions stood together in a peaceful protest – and marched to the Union Building in Pretoria to take a stand for change.

The public holiday, marked every year on August 9th in South Africa, commemorates this historic protest of unjust laws under the then-apartheid regime.

Though there is still much that needs to be worked on for the women of South Africa (and all countries around the world), that was the day that change started for good.

We can accomplish so much when we work together and stand up for what’s right. Women have had a long history of oppression, but every fight gets one step closer to freedom and equality.

We hope you had a wonderful Happy Women’s Day to all you South African queens out there!

Do you have an elderly person in your life that you love and appreciate very much? National Senior Citizens Day this year is August 21st – and this is the day to let them know how much you care and it’s an opportunity to recognize their many accomplishments. It is a time for the younger generation to share in the wisdom and experiences that our older generation of people have to offer.

Today, seniors are still active in their communities as well as continuing to have a strong presence in the workforce. For all they do and have achieved for the good of their communities, senior citizens deserve our thanks!
