Sourdough bread recipe Lucky draw Melya Suryanto (Mel), the Sourdough Queen Sourdough Pan offer We love our sourdough right? With some smashed avocado, eggs + vegemite – the Aussie way! Oi! Oi! Oi! Well with a simple sourdough bread recipe that's easy to make using your sourdough starter. Give the dough an overnight rise for an early morning bake or mix it in the morning for freshly baked sourdough bread to have on its own or with lunch/dinner. It’s easily adjusted to fit your schedule! In a nutshell, sourdough is slow-fermented bread. It's unique because it does not require commercial yeast in order to rise. Instead, it’s made with a live fermented culture, a sourdough starter, which acts as a natural leavening agent. Sourdough is best known for its characteristic tangy flavour, chewy texture and that crisp, crackly crust. From a health standpoint, it dominates when compared to supermarket loaves. The naturally occurring acids and long fermentation help to break down the gluten, making it more digestible and easies for the body to absorb. And guess what it does taste damn good (more so if you made it yourself, right?) Remember our Mel in Brisbane? Mel who has contributed a few yummy and gorgeous recipes Pandan Chocolate Swirl Chiffon Cake, Dragon Fruit Layered Steam cake and Anzac biscuits with Pandan flavour and now giving you a Pandan Sourdough recipe! Mel is officially a Pandan Addict!! A delicious take on the trending sourdough bread by Mel, baked using the Brisbane Sourdough Pan by @skitchenau - Australia's first cast iron sourdough pan!!

More videos on our TV Channel Here's your Sourdough Bread Recipe Sourdough starter · 5g sourdough starter · 35g water · 35 bread flour Dough · 270g high gluten bread flour (90%) · 30g Whole wheat Emmer flour (10%) · 252g water (80%) · 60g levain (20%) · 6g salt (2%) · 9gr Pandan (3%) Powder from My Blue Tea BUY PANDAN POWDER NOW Directions 8:00 am: Add starter to the water and whisk together, add flour, mix well, cover loosely, let it sit at room temperature at 74-78F until in about 5-6 hours starter reaches its peak (triples or more in volume). All starters are different, so work with yours accordingly. 11:00 am: mix water with bread flour and cover it, let it rest 1 hour for autolyse. During the autolyse process the flour absorbs water, becoming fully hydrated. This activates gluten development. 1:00 pm: add sourdough starter. Mix with hand around 5 mins and make sure all well incorporated Cover and let it rest for 30 min. 1:30 pm: add salt and mix for 4-5 minutes until well incorporated (you may add water at this stage especially if the dough feels tight) Leave to rest for 30 min. At 74-78F /23-26C. 2:00 pm: Lamination. Wet your hands and spray table with water. Stretch the dough as much as you can gently and spread the inclusions e.g. dried peach and fold them. Let rest for another 30 mins. 2.30pm: First Coil and Fold 3.30pm: Second Coil and Fold Performing stretches and folds every 30 - 45 min will help to continue gluten development, time varies depending on how strong your dough is. Keep monitoring the dough, if it’s rising too fast, you can shorten the time in between stretches to 45 minutes or less. After the final stretch let the dough proof for 2 hours at 76-80F/ 24-26C. You should see some bubbles on the surface, the dough has to become lighter. 5.45pm: Shaping. When forming the sourdough into your desired loaf shape, the goal throughout the shaping process is to create surface tension on the outer surface of the dough without affecting the delicate inner dough. Using your bench knife, flip the dough and place in the proofing basket with the seam facing up 6.15pm: transfer dough and allow to rise for 14-24 hours in the refrigerator. Next morning, place The Brisbane Sourdough Pan in the oven and pre heat at 250c for at least an hour. Take the dough out from the fridge, remove from the banneton and cover it with parchment paper. Score your dough with a bread lame. Then move your bread into Brisbane Sourdough Bread Pan and bake at 250°C with the lid closed for 18-20 minutes. After 20 minutes, open the lid of the Brisbane Sourdough Bread Pan and continue baking at 200°C for another 20 minutes or until golden brown . Tips & Notes Good sourdough bread can only be made with a sourdough culture that's live and kicking. So make absolutely sure: You take good care of your starter by refreshing it regularly. When a starter gets too sour the acid stops the yeast from growing and making bubbles. By refreshing you give your starter new food to eat and you dilute the acid environment so the yeast comes back to live again. You use the right flour to feed your culture. Organic whole grain wheat and rye and spelt will work best because these grains will have enough yeast spores to keep your culture going. You use the right water too. A sourdough culture does not like chlorine, so if your tap water has too much of it, use bottled water. You can add any flavours or fruits into your sourdough, says Mel, The Sourdough Queen! Try them with My Blue Tea Superfood Powder. i.e. Blue Butterfly Pea Powder, Dragon Fruit Powder, Dragon Fruit Powder, other fruit and nuts ... you decide. About @skitchenau - The Sourdough Baking Pan and about Mel BAKE A PERFECT SOURDOUGH BREAD WITH THE BRISBANE SOURDOUGH PAN, EVERYTIME THE MORE I BAKE, THE MORE I FALL IN LOVE WITH… My name is Melya Suryanto and I fell in love with baking Sourdough during Covid in 2020. I spent hours and hours in the kitchen preparing the dough only for bread to fail when I baked it. So I went looking for a solution and I found it in my home town Semarang, Indonesia. I collaborated with a company specialising in cast iron manufacturing and got them to make 2 cast iron pans that have all the perfect attributes in shape, features and material to cook the perfect Sourdough loaf every time. The pan has been wildly successful in the sourdough community throughout South East Asia and we are very happy to be able to finally launch it in Australia. I am so proud of this product that I named it after my new home town BRISBANE. I hope you enjoy using these pans to create the perfect sourdough loaf every time.

  • Chef Dave | The Vegan Chef | My Blue Tea | Chef Profile

    Vegan Chef Dave MY BLUE TEA CHEF PROFILE Vegan Chef Dave ​ Sailing across the seas as a chef on one of the world's most prestigious cruise liners was to be one of the highlights of Chef Dave's life - but something just didn't sit right with his soul. ​ He realised he didn't know where his ingredients came from, and then he didn't like what he found out. So he decided to make a fresh start, and become a Vegan Chef, and educate others on how easy and delicious this new life path can be! Chef Dave The Vegan Chef "I'm currently working on veganizing all traditional Malaysian, and Asian food to showcase to the world that being a vegan is much easier than you think." Things didn't start off Smooth Sailing for this Chef-on-the-Seas Vegan Chef Dave hails from a small-town called Jementah, in Segamat, Johor, Malaysia. He started his culinary career in a culinary school in Malaysia, and has also graduated from UK universities, attaining a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management, and an MBA. He then went on to work with 5 Star international brand hotels such as Shangri-La Hotels and Resort since 2012, and in 2019 was sailing with the Disney Cruise line as a western cuisine chef. But all was not sailing smoothly for Chef Dave, as he became more aware of the issues of climate change, and the contribution of the animal and agriculture industry towards it. The end of 2019 marked a turning point in his life, when he came across two videos about cruelty in egg industry as well as dairy industry. So he started to assess the impact of his actions, as a chef sailing around the world and working with top companies. He realised he did not know where his ingredients were coming from. ​ Making an impact So, he decided to go vegan and stand solidarity with animals. To fight for injustice happening towards animals and be a voice for the voiceless. That decision truly impacted him a lot especially when thinking about his career and future. Dave choose to be a person who lives happily without harming himself, environment and others [he meant to reduce and avoid as much as he could]. While still trying to find the best way to be a voice for the voiceless, he realised that he doesn’t need to stop doing what he loves – which is making delicious food – he just needed to change how he did it! Dave started cooking vegan food and inspiring people on how we can survive and thrive with delicious, nutritious food without bringing harm to animals. This is especially a feat in Malaysia, where the awareness of veganism is truly lacking. His current project: Veganizing all traditional Malaysian, South East Asian and Asian food stage by stage to showcase that being a vegan is much easier than you think. It is a simple choice that could set another life free. Chef Dave hopes that through his social media presence he can share his journey as a vegan chef who will inspire others through his contents on vegan life, food and travel. After 10 months on this new journey, Chef Dave currently has more than 50,000 followers across social media, and is recognised as one of the chef under Masters of Malaysian Cuisine promoting Veganised Malaysian cuisine to international audiences, and started his plant based food business as a social mission to make Malaysian healthier with Whole Food Plant Based meals. ​ And Vegan Food is Delicious! Follow Vegan Chef Dave's journey across his social media channels! ​ YouTube Facebook Instagram Twitter Making a presence ​ Chef Dave can be found posting tips, challenges and just day to day stories across his many social media channels in multiple languages (he speaks English, Bahasa Malay, Tamil, and Mandarin) As if that wasn't a full time job enough, Chef Dave also presents at hotels, educates the public on TV shows, or partners up with other prominent chefs on some shows! Both Dave and Jackie are currently doing live cooking shows with Tourism Malaysia and Masters of Malaysian Cuisine, MOMC. "I hope my journey can inspire others as a vegan chef with content surrounding vegan life, food and travel. " Feeding a crowd Chef Dave has inspired countless others with his personal content based around his vegan life, food and travel Vegan Nasi Kerabu Chef Dave's mantra is eating should never be boring, and especially true when veganising traditional family favourites!
