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.
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 :)
Running out of breakfast ideas? We have some tips for you. Grab a pack of our daily baked dinner rolls (6 pieces in one bag) with your choice of spread such as strawberry jam, nutella or peanut butter and add a slice of cold cut unsalted butter or simply have it plain. They go so well with your favourite tea or freshly brewed aromatic coffee.
