The Magic of Making Tasty Herero bread | No Mixer | Easy Recipe


Hello, Besties! I am happy to bring you another video. Todays recipe is inspired by the Ovaherero tribe, who are indigenous hunters/ gathers and are said to be related to the Himba tribe. They are spread sparsely across the Eastern, Cental, and North Western areas of Namibia. Herero bread is relatively easy to make, you can make replicate this recipe at home especially now that we are approaching school holidays.

The ovaherero poeple are known for their love of meat, though this does not exclude the rest of the population because Namibians generally treasure their Kapana, braai, barberque and poitjie. Namibian cuisine is influenced largely by german, British, Dutch and South African culture due to its colonial history. Herero bread is a wheat based bread which can be enjoyed with cooked, stewed, grilled and fried on meat or fish. The classic herero bread is prepared in a cast iron pot, collectively known as a poitjie. I hope you liked this video as much as I enjoyed filming it and if you like to see me make more videos like this in future, please give it a massive thumbs up. Leave a comment or recommendation, I would like to hear from you!.
