    A really GOOD bread book

    Several months ago I was here asking for advise on bread making. One person (and I am sorry but i do not recall who) said something about minimal yeast being the key.

    Last month AsiaBooks opened in Rayong and I picked up a really good book called "Artisian Breads Every Day" by Peter Reinhart. This book goes into great detail about the minimal yeast "movement" and gives a lot of really great recipes. My wife is producing some really amazing bread. Honestly better than anything I can buy locally.

    If you are interested and don't mind forking over the 900 baht I really recommend this book.

    Thanks for the tips Bruce will check out on Amazon.

    Does she use a breadmaker or do it all by hand ?

    I always use this low stamina requirement method in a toaster oven.(20 minutes or so to cook...30 minutes to eat)
    Had just one failure ( excellent house footing material) at the beginning ..not enough yeast.
    If you like Lavan type bread (heavier more chewy but not dense ) use a bit more yeast.
    I add olive oil in final mix.
    Fun to experiment with other flavoursome additives too ..olives , chilies, banana,papaya.. +++
    I make dough balls to make little rolls ..yummy ..disappear before they are cool...little Asian hands..!

    By hand

    She does everything by hand--except we have an industrial size mixer with the bread hook. She is supplying a local grocery store with fresh bread. She does about 20 full-size and 20 half size baguettes per day.

    Cheers for the OG will give it a go this weekend ,, to be very honest mate I have tried similar recipe,s but have allways ended up with a hard unlevened brick . Still IF I can turn out something similar it would be a bonus especially for when I retire to Thailand , cause I dunno bout you but I tend to find that tasteless sweet bread a bit of a no no
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    Cheers for that Kev will take a couple of bags back to the UK with me in my empty suitcases when I go home next year

    Can imagine the fun at Heathrow when the customs men open my case and find amongst the fake handbags from Laos and herbal noodle flavour packs,,, puffs and puffs of white powder ?
