The Classic Unbeatable Champion.

Here’s a perfect example of simple, yet slow food. It will be gulped up within seconds, bringing in the fast part. Crunch your knuckles, slip on a banging apron (it’s important to feel good, you sexy thing), and get your favorite beat playing. (I suggest Born Ruffians’ Sole Brother)

Freshly baked bread topped with melting butter. True love.

The Unbeatable Champion

Serves 6

Preparation time plus proofing & baking: 50 mins


750ml   All purpose flour

500ml   Luke warm water

10g       Dry yeast

5ml       Salt

10ml     Brown sugar

Olive oil

Black olives


Whole garlic cloves


1. Combine the flour, water, yeast, salt and brown sugar

2. Time to shake! Knead the dough for about 7 mins. Be careful to over-knead it. It’s simple. No overthinking. No over-kneading

3. Rub dough ball with olive oil, cover bowl with cling film. Proof for 30 mins

4. Form balls, I made mini buns.

5. Top with black olives, rosemary and garlic cloves (it’ll be all gooey, soft and delicious after baking). Proof for another 10 mins. Splash balls with little bit of water.

6. Pop in the oven. Bake for 20 mins at 180 celsius degrees, until golden spots appear.

7. When still hot, top with fresh butter, pour a glass of wine and enjoy the simplest wonder of food.

Meet Mynderd. Hi, nice to meet you! Needless to say I'm passionate about food. Friends, family, copious amounts of wine, beer, baking and sandy feet can be added to the list. I'm not a chef. I'm also not a photographer. I'm not about complicated, tweezer-placed food. I am about simple, toe-curling-good food. I studied Food Consumer Science at the University of Pretoria. Graduated in 2013 and kept on travelling the wonderful world of food. Hop on!
