Traditional Staple Named, Askoek

Fynbos Enterprises

Fynbos Enterprises doubles as a pop-up style restaurant on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, serving wood-fired pizza and a traditional staple named, Askoek. Fillings and flavours are wholesome, fresh and wherever possible, from the area. 

Moerkoffie

South Africa’s favourite bush brew is Afrikaans Moerkoffie that is made with freshly ground coffee in a simple enamel coffee pot on a stove or over an open fire. Contrary to popular belief, the name does not come from the aggressive Afrikaans term which means to hit someone really hard. It derives from the Dutch noun ‘moer’ which means ‘a layer of sediment’. This may not sound appealing, but many coffee connoisseurs swear by this one, and a cup of rich and robust moerkoffie is sure to give you a satisfying kick-start any time of the day or night.

Askoek

The Askoek is one of South Africa’s much loved food heirlooms and is still a firm favourite on many a braai menu. These buns are made with unbleached, stone-ground flour and baked directly on the coals. The thin layer of ash that remains once the coals have been dusted off lends a delicious smokiness to this rustic bread.
