I think I'll stick with Beef Jerky in that case MikeP!

Thanks for the advice  Mike - will venture down to Carrefour once I can muster enough resolve to stay calm in the crowds. Anyone know the best time to go there? It's always hell whenever I go!

Perhaps I can interest you in boerewors - that was a success!  I tried making biltong a few years ago and it was not succesful - the meat didn't actually go vrot but it tasted pretty bad and the ultimate proof that it was not fit for consumption was that my dog wouldn't eat it!

have you tried to make biltong yet. I gave it a go a few years ago and after two weeks ended up with very mouldy meat (paid a fortune for the  meat) in my french inlaws gararge. It attracted a lot of attention from french neighbours and abandomed all efforts in fear of health inspectors!

Please let me know when ever it will be available -Mike- , I'll be the first customer

Beef jerky is available (two flavours) at Carrefour in Antibes; look in the "exotic foreign food" section.

I'm looking into ways of ensuring that fresh biltong and droewors will be readily available on the Riviera. Watch this space...

Try to get biltong from any of the UK shops which sell South African goods. It is the South African version of 'jerky' but better - airdried spiced meat.

You can also make it yourself - recipes on the web. Tricky to get it right though.

If anyone happens to know of a place here which sells biltong, please post it here. The homesick Saffricans will appreciate it.
