Meat me Halfway 

Freddy Hirsch offers a wide range of pure spices, from traditional braai seasonings like garlic, paprika, and coriander, to more exotic flavours such as our Fo Sho and Winchester Grill Doy Packs, turmeric, and ginger. Choosing the right blend of spices can elevate your braai dishes from ordinary to extraordinary. For example, the Freddy Hirsch Chicken Braai Spice is a delicious blend of herbs and spices that adds a subtle smoky flavour to chicken, while the Freddy Hirsch Meat Spice is a classic, all-purpose seasoning that works well on beef, lamb, and pork.

To get the most flavour out of your spices, use them as a rub or marinade for your meat. Rubs are dry mixtures of spices that are applied directly to the meat before cooking, while marinades are wet mixtures that are used to marinate the meat for a few hours or overnight. Both methods infuse the meat with flavour and help to tenderize it. For a classic braai flavour, try rubbing Freddy Hirsch Meat Spice or Chicken Braai Spice onto your meat before grilling or marinating it in a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil, and Freddy Hirsch Garlic Powder.

A Well-Seasoned Side 

While meat is often the focus of a braai, don't forget about the side dishes! Freddy Hirsch's pure spices can be used to flavour everything from roasted vegetables to potato salad. For example, try tossing baby potatoes in Freddy Hirsch Vegetable Spice and roasting them in the oven or adding Freddy Hirsch Garlic Powder to a creamy pasta salad. These little touches can make a big difference in the overall flavour of your braai spread and prove to your guests that you have a taste for what tastes great.
