    I like Baldricks' idea of making your own bread. The only thing is to be able to buy the right flour and yeast at a decent price. The really big bakeries can buy in larger volumes that it's more profitable for them. I'm lucky I know a few bakers that I can get a SMALL discount on some things. I wish I new their suppliers.

    If you guys know where to buy different types of flour at a decent price, please let me know. Buying flour at Tops, Big C or any of those chains is not a good price.

    The Panasonic bread makers do seem noticeably better than the rest. but not for sale in SEA in general. I ended up getting one in the UK and bringing it over.

    As for needing a licence to make/sell bread I can believe it. remember thailand runs on continenal law, the law tells you what you are allowed to do... not what you are not allowed to do. so licenses for everything, and back handers for every stamp.

    My ex was into making bread, it was fairly straight forward and she was Welsh'

    She had a wonderful bread making machine that stunk the house out with yummy smells.

    When her foot had healed and the plaster ,cast sawed away.
    The doc extracted the titanium rod and she nobbled over to courtesy car and said lets make bread.

    The courtesy car was decorated with cup cakes and bread and here endith the story .

    You having a larf.? You can leave a loaf of "Farmhouse" out in the sun for 3 weeks and it's still "fresh". Loaded up with more chemicals than Glaxo.

    Luckily, there is a local "Danish" bakery near to us in Rayong that does some really good bread. Tried baking our own, once upon a time using a Severin brand bread-making machine.
    -The smell of fresh bread permeating the house, especially in a morning was wonderful. The actual taste of it less so, unfortunately. Every loaf seemed to weigh a fucking ton for some reason.

    Bread machine self baking is usually crap. The results invariably resemble a heavy, cake consistency and is useless for sandwiches.

    Decent bread can be had from any Central supermarkets and Gourmet outlets in the Emporium/ Paragon malls. Big C outlets previously owned by Carrefour are all good for baguettes. All these outlets now do sourdough loaves. My favourite place for most types of bread in Bangkok is the Saint Etoile chain.

    Quite true, I used to give a sprinkle of powdered yeast on my Racing greyhounds food , I did read it was rich in Vitamin E and B12 , whether this was true or not I was not sure, but My dogs won stacks of races on it .

    Nonsense. We bake most of our bread and it is excellent for sandwiches for the first day. On the second day it is used to make very nice toast and any left over is made into breadcrumbs for stuffing pork or chicken. No waste, bread fresh when you want rather than buying it and not using it.

    Ours is a Breville which we bought a bargain price of 50 instead of the recommended price of 100. The latest "Which" magazine in the UK covered breadmakers and they reckoned that overall Panasonic breadmakers were the best.

    We used to use the ready made mixtures as they were comparatively cheap at 50 pence but they have almost doubled in price now and it's cheaper to start from scratch. Once one gets used to the preparation, weighing the mixture etc. it takes very little time. I now know how much water to put with my mixture and this is one of the most important factors in bread making.

    There is a timer on mine and it is possible to set the maker so that bread is cooked overnight and is fresh for breakfast. This is not such a success because unless one gets up to remove the bread from the cooker it continues to cook even though the power is switched off. The bread is still nice but not as nice as my normally baked bread because it is a bit dryer. So, I don't use the timer these days.

    Obviously if the correct flour is not available it isn't worth trying to bake your own bread. The convenience of having fresh bread when you want it is worth the effort put into the preparation and this is especially the case for me as I live on a mountain which sometimes gets snowed in and I don't need to go out to get bread.
