The Lamb spit combo

We floated on the Brede River for 8 hours, jammed to great South African music collaborations and ate delicious festival food at Up the Creek.  There was one food tent where Ma and Pa came up the creek and cooked for their whole festival family.  From a military tent, the food army family catering fed the thousands from three 100 litre potjie pots and a 2 by 8 meter rotating lamb spit.  As one of festival soldiers, they fed me well.  Butternut, beetroot, pasta salad, beans, pork, lamb and mash for R50. When the plate couldn’t handle anymore food, they asked if you wanted s’more.  There will delicious food stands but I’ll have to admit that the Ma and Pa meal was one of the highlights at Up the Creek.  Read more about the festival experience on Mahala.co.za
