As cute as the name sounds, this dish here isn’t pure cutesy cute at all; it’s a big-time dish and is often considered to be South Africa’s national dish.

Bobotie, pronounced as BA-BOOR-TEA, appears to be a dish accounted way back to ancient Roman times (yep, imagine those thigh-high Roman sandals). It was basically layers of cooked meat with pine nuts seasoned with pepper, celery seeds, and asafoetida (a herb similar to that of leeks), then added with a top layer of egg and milk mixture.
