Cooking for the Wedding Feast


My host family's yard was spiffied-up for my host sister's summer wedding.  This photo shows the cooking area -- an entire cow is in these pots!  My host father was the kgosana, or headman, of our village.  His eldest daughter's wedding was a celebration that spared no expense or nicety.  Family and friends from both near and afar joined in a massive feast and dance that lasted several days, including the preparations that led up to the actual ceremony and post-ceremony party.  Traditional food was prepared using traditional methods, and served inside modern tents with modern decor -- a harmonious mix of old and new.
