Born and raised in Zimbabwe we grew up eating game meat. Making biltong is a long tradition of hunting and farming communities in Africa.We developed the taste of biltong as we grew up. The excess game meat was cut into strips hung out and sun dried utilization the hot climate. Vinegar was used to cure meat to prevent mold growth. Coriander was used to flavor the meat as a seasoning and to keep flies off the meat. Meat hung up to dry became harder capturing the rich flavors preserved in the meat. Biltong became a national heritage, symbol of love and national snack. Biltong is inseparable to lovers of sporting events in Africa and was always the snack of the day. For the Diasporas, when they miss home, a bite of biltong cures their nostalgia of thinking of home and some eating biltong is a reminder of their heritage.
My love for my community is what drives and motivates me to produce biltong, bringing the rich inheritance of Southern Africa to its people in Canada. So far Biltong Toronto has captured the attention of most Southern Africans, Canadians, Americans, Australian and people from other parts of the world searching for biltong to cure their cravings. Biltong is now the most sought after snack by sports especially rugby players, soccer players,cricket, golfers, footballers, tennis players, campers and long distance drivers. It is also a great snack to enjoy after a work-out, work or in school as a mid day snack or after a sport activity. Biltong is becoming a favorite lunch-box food snack for professional men and women as well as people who are active, training regularly, or simply health conscious.Its important to know that biltong is a healthy alternative to other protein snacks that are currently available and Biltong is a natural source of protein and iron which makes it a healthy source of nourishment.
