Ebook Discount

I am relenting once again to numerous requests from Kababayans in far flung Cavite, Batangas, laguna etc., I know you guys want to learn how to at least make a pandesal and sell them, so here it is, i am offering a discount to the Ebook, you can now purchase the formula tested recipes for only $30.00, not $55 or $45 but just $30.00. You will need at least 2 weeks to browse over the recipes, this guy from Bulacan who is Italian managed to bake his own Pandesal and now selling breads out of the Ebook alone. Go to my website and start learning how to make Pandesal, Ensaimada, Monay, Soft buns etc,. I guarantee you that you will be able to sell your breads before Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, this will probably my first Christmas where i will not be able to sell my gift boxes. Bawal dito sa New York mag tinda ng baked goods at home. You cannot bake at home and sell them. Only 11 states allow that. I think they should slacken their rules so they can help those who are out of work to get something small started at home, don't you think? Unlike in our country, we can sell anything we want from our kitchen. Bawal dito. You will be penalized, in fact, i read somewhere that the authorities hunt down these home-based business. tsk tsk tsk. There are so many Americans out there who want to bake at home and sell them on a regular basis since the cost of renting and capitalization is enormous. Mailing the goodies is easy, ang ganda ng mail system here, excellent i would say.

My orders would come the exact date the supplier promises. No delays, sometimes before noon the package arrives on your doorstep. In my case, my post office is just 4 blocks away!!! Sayang di ba? I could bake specialty items such as my cinnamon rolls, ensaimadas, spanish breads, and my cookies pero hindi pwede. Pati ang may ari ng house where you live, will be penalized. Oh my!

So you guys in the Philippines are lucky, most of the students who attended my classes do not even get a permit but are selling for years, except the ones in Marikina and Makati. I also had one student from Batangas who was visited by a Sanitation Inspection when his competitor reported him to the City Hall. Apparently, he was outselling him after our session, putting up fresher versions of the pan de coco and spanish breads, his improved Pandesal caught his neighbor's eye and he got busted. Ala eh!

I am still in contact with some of my students dating back 2003 to the very last ones i had before i left the country. I must say that beyond what i earned out of teaching the hands on class is the joy of friendship i got out of this passion from bread making. I do not advertise my facebook, but somehow they find me!!! Thank you guys!!!

3rd Class Flour, What's It All About

For starters i cannot make this Hard Monay if i did not bring any 3rd class flour or soft weak flour to New York. Once i ran out of 3rd class and tried Cake Flour, it turned bad, do not even think of using All Purpose, it will be soft but not chewy as this one made with yes, 3rd class indeed. So third class is hard to find here in the US if you will use that term. You have to say or look for soft wheat flour, that's it, not hard wheat flour, not cake or All purpose but something in between these two. It is easy to find in the Phil., just ask your local bakery suppliers and they know it is Tercera. Tercera is not for bread, bakers use it basically for cookies, cakes and other pastries, but we bakers know how to create bread recipes using part of this flour with the bread flour or hard wheat flour. It makes a softer version of any of your fave breads, with a cheaper price tag. Plus if i own a bakery, i get to use the third class for my cakes and cookies, lowering my food cost i…

Baking Pandesal, Once Again on Proofing

I finished my one one one last August, fortunately my student arrived and made it on time before i left or went back to New York. Originally, she was asking for a September 23 to 27 date and since my flight was September 7, i had to decline her request.

I was surprised to hear from her a couple of days later when she changed her mind and decided to go home so she can catch up with me. Paid her deposit and we set the date. 3 days later, she sent me a photo of one of her cook, badly burned and all bandaged up from the hospital. Class postpone. I prayed for her that she gets well so my student can still make it. I was thinking, she would have to wait till December and well, December being a busy month, i have a feeling we will not make it and i have to return her deposit.

Praise G-d, she made it and we had a really really fun session. Her goal was to bake Pandesal and Ensaimada. She has a restaurant in Taiwan and she caters to Pinoys there selling Chicken Inasal which judging from her st…

July Session

This is the only session I had so far where i used 2 different brands of flour which is Globe by Universal Robina and Sun Moon Star by Pilmico.Now, if you have attended my class, and I know some of my former students still read my blog then you know that i preach water and adore first class flours with a high protein content. Anything that is lower than my expected level is out of the book just like this popular brand I will call Brit (not it's real name). If you know your history and you bake breads, you know what this brand is. Now, you can certainly email me so I can divulge to you in secret what this horrible I mean disappointing brand of first class is.First off, it does not deserve it's price tag. Too expensive for an over P800.00 per sack flour when a P720.00 sack can use up more water. Why is that important? Well, too long to discuss but I hope your teacher can tell you why. If not, then you went to the wrong school.So here I am, using my student's flour ( they alr…
