Background studies to Bacon & the Art of Living

Our Roots Lay in Africa!


The background of this great land is far more than the exploits of the white settlers. Equally real and far more sad is the story of the black, Khoe and San tribes of this amazing land. To ignore it or pretend it never happened is to lie to ourselves. Following my focus on the Boer and British people in South Africa, I will continue on to the other peoples who call this great land home! They have a direct impact, not just as a background to the Bacon & the Art of Living, but to bacon curing itself!

What I discovered in my research is a sophisticated peoples, steeped in cultural history and a fascinating tradition of meat curing!

Here are some links to FB posts which I did over the years and will be will be the basis of this page.
