THE LESOTHO LOAF: MUNCHIES

THE LESOTHO LOAF: MUNCHIES

Fly fishing guide James Kirsten of African Waters, on his Lesotho Loaf, his Bokong Bread, his Basotho Brioche.

“One advantage of guiding in Lesotho is that there isn’t much out here. Unreal scenery, breathtaking views and phenomenal fishing, yes. . . but the convenience of a small Pick ‘n Pay or Spar to grab a loaf of bread? Not so much. That’s why the Makhangoa Community Camp is not only a top fishing camp, but also a world class high altitude bakery, with their Lesotho Loaf.

Beer & bread = eternal bedfellows.

“There are many ways to make bread, for sure. But time and effort seem to be valuable commodities these days. So here is a quick and easy step-by-step process to make our homemade honey loaf. It’s an absolute cracker with guests as the baking process is entertaining and the bread tastes great. It works with almost anything from a morning fry-up to a hot chicken curry (it also impresses the hell out of the betties, boet!). Give it a bash, you won’t be disappointed.”

  • 2 cups white bread flour
  • 1 heaped teaspoon salt
  • ¾ packet yeast (7/8 grams)
  • 50g Butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey (more if wanting sweeter)
  • 1 cup water
