Hello, What's Up!
Lekker is a very weird word… It’s not a very pretentious word, it is inclusive and totally versatile. In fact, if I was to think of anywhere in the world that the word could flourish would be Texas.
Laid back, hard working and able to find the joy in the ordinary moments. Pronounced with the E sound so short that it almost sounds like an A, then drop the R. Lakka. Lekker is an Afrikaans slang word that means many things at the same time. The Google direct translation just means “nice” but this is a great example of “the result becoming greater than the sum of it’s parts”.
Afrikaans is a South African language and a dialect of dutch originally. In essence the word Lekker is a catch all to express the enjoyments all life has to offer.
If you are sitting by the fire and everyone you love is sitting around you, that’s lekker. The sun setting over the bay would create a Lekker view. The day that you are about to have and wines that you are about to taste… Lekker. Having somebody else drive so that you can taste those wines, Blerrie Lekker!
