From samp and mogodu to boiled maize (iinkobe) and mopani worms, South Africans are sharing their favourite traditional dishes on various social media platforms.
Some people prefer simple meals and some prefer home-cooked and not the usual South African tshisa nyama where you go out and buy. 24 September is a day on which Mzansi citizens honour and celebrate the country’s diversity through culture and tradition as they mark Heritage Day.
As it's a public holiday, many people have also prepared some umqombothi for their elders and Briefly News looks at all the suggestions and preferences from the Rainbow Nation.
