"Breads from all over the world" is what Susanna from Mehlstaubundofenduft
likes to see. She is the host for Bread Baking Day 73.
I'm born in the Netherlands and moved to Thailand
almost 10 years ago. I started to bake our own bread because Thailand has no original
bread culture. Of course you can buy bread everywhere in the world, but all we
could find here was white fabric baked bread. Nowadays you can find very nice baked
artisan bread in Chiang Mai and Bangkok, and probably in other places too. But in
our small village in the North of Thailand we still can't find a nice artisan
Susanna likes to see bread typical from my country.
The Netherlands is a typical Bread country with enough bread to choose from. The
first one that came to my mind was a typical Dutch loaf: tijgerbrood or Dutch crunchy
crust. I had no rise flour in the house, only rise starch and that doesn't
work. Of course I tried it and it gives a nice whitish crust but not the
beautiful tiger pattern I was looking for.
Today I baked typical Dutch bread; brown bread and I
rolled it in oats. It tastes very nice.
Here in Thailand we just finished
Songkran; Thai new year celebration for the year 2558. So with this delicious
typical brown bread from the Netherlands we wish all you a happy new year.
Yesterday we had Stefanie's Krusti's and today I tweeted them a bit. I used 750 flour and 50 grams of Carrot Mix by Ireks, given by Schmidt to try. The result is a good tasting and nice smelling roll with seeds and dried carrot slices.
