Jan Braai Demonstrates a Great Way to Braai the Perfect Prawns for Your Loved Ones

FireworksEven if you didn’t have the kind of day you wanted for Valentine’s Day, Jan Braai, author of Fireworks, has great braai ideas in the Getaway Blog that should hold you in good stead for next year.

Prawns are always a great way to entertain, and just about everyone enjoys them. So, you want that special someone to love you? Get over to that braai!
