Fresh Artisan Sourdough Bread

Not very often we come across people talking about Sourdough bread in Brunei but it is something we have been wanting to make for a long time. Fresh artisan sourdough bread is time consuming to make as it uses a natural way of fermenting process (usually between 7 to 8 hours) without the help of artificial commercial yeast to rise the dough. Can you imagine how long it takes to bake a loaf of sourdough bread?

We started experimenting the sourdough bread 2.5 years ago when we first opened our Cafeteria in Gadong Central but it wasn’t until recently that we are finally happy with the outcome and start selling them. Like any of our other breads, we recommend a shelf life of 2-3 days. Currently available is the Sourdough Rye and Brown Sourdough Loaf and definitely more varieties to come.




Wishing Everyone A Prosperous Year Of Sheep 2015

Written by Eric Pui

Although the celebration of the Lunar New Year of Sheep (or Goat) has officially ended on Thursday (05.03.2015), it is not too late to wish everyone a prosperous and productive year 2015. We had a busy day on the first day of Chinese New Year where families, friends and visitors came to visit me at the house I grew up in at Kampung Tunggulian, Belait. Some even came all the way from Bandar. Here is a group photo a lot of people (you know who you are) have been waiting for :)


From the Management and Staff at Mr Baker’s Bakeshop, we wish everyone a very happy and healthy year ahead.

Catering For Jolly Language School’s 2nd Anniversary Celebration

Written by Eric Pui

Jolly Language School celebrated its 2nd anniversary last month in a rather unique way. The persons (the teachers themselves) who planned the theme, props, foods and the overall presentation of the theme were simply amazing and creative I would say. Similar to last year, food is a big part of the celebration. By food, I meant brilliantly created food art that is. The theme this year is “The Snail and The Whale” so we had to go along this theme when planning the menu. For example, we had the snail sandwiches, whale cupcakes, snail cupcakes and other cute little creatures such as crab croissan’wich, shark jelly and so on.

CST140525_0058Event similar to this one requires months of preparation work. For instance, we may need to order the props from overseas that match with the event theme and the time spend on designing the food, varieties and table setting needs to be considered as well. If you are currently planning for an event, be it a kids birthday party or a mini wedding reception, and would like to have us as your food caterer, please come to our shop and go through the details and criteria with our Chefs. Our contact number can be found on the right hand side column of this blog should you wish to make a call for an appointment.

Look Who Is Back!!

Written by Eric Pui

It’s been a while and many of you have been inquiring about the returning of our homemade apple custard danish and blueberry danish. Good news!! They are back and are now available at our cafeteria in Gadong Central. Very soon they will also be available at our Batu Bersurat and JPMC outlet. These danishes also come in mini sizes suitable for corporate events, special occasions or even kids party. I like my danishes to go with a cup of hot English tea (Earl Grey is the best), what about you?
