Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day South African Style


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.

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.

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.

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.
