South African Ploughman's Platter

South African Ploughman's Platter

Although the term Ploughman's Lunch calls up images of farm workers relaxing in the lunchtime shade for a platter of bread, cheese and cold meats, this term was actually created as part of a cheese marketing campaign. While the real origin kills some of the romance, there is no denying the delight of a Ploughman's Platter indicating the first half of the day's work to be concluded. With Worker's Day coming up, we've decided to give this traditional British combination, a South African makeover. 

With Corona in the air, most of us again realise the blessing of having a work and whether we will be back there on 1 May or not, perhaps we can enjoy a humble South African Ploughman's Platter and be thankful for our jobs!

The Leopard's Leap Culinary Team has add a South African inspiration to the traditional Ploughman's Platter.
