Malunggay Pandesal

Just got a call 'again' from GMA 7, probably one of their researchers if i could do a videotaped demo on Malunggay Pandesal with a couple of their GMA KID talents. I had to beg off on this one, for the second time and i could not think of anyone to recommend really. Anyone who is interested to be ON TV, feel free to drop me a message so i can give him your name.

The first time i was asked to do a video on Malunggay Pandesal was about 2008 i guess, i got a visit from one of Jessica Soho's researcher and we talked about the videotaping thing but i cancelled it when they did not arrive as planned. I am a fan of Jessica Soho among the many other magazine shows i watch from both rival channels so i was surprised when they aired the story on Malunggay Pandesal that weekend itself. So fast huh, i thought they can or store and preserve shows in the studio but it was impressive that they can do the feature show in just a week.

Anyway, my nephew wanted me to do the video, i had to pass this one to whoever has the guts to be on national tv, so i told him nah, your tita is just way too shy, i don't even have a photo of myself on my facebook account. Pity.

So again, anyone who knows how to make Malunggay Pandesal and has the pleasing winning personality to be on tv, send me a message. I have no idea if you will get paid for it, i did not bother asking the researcher, i was too busy saying i can't.

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…
