Some tips on Bread Making

The starting point for all bread is to make a dough by mixing together four basic ingredients: flour, water, yeast and salt.  Water is the catalyst that activates starch enzymes in the flour.   These break down the starch to a variety of sugars including glucose and maltose which become the ‘food’ for the yeast.

Salt, apart from enhancing flavor, strengthens gluten.  However,  because it inhibits yeast activity, the artisan baker only adds it in the last five minutes of the mixing process, thus allowing the yeast a head start.

Some secrets of Chocolate

A real chocolate expert smells first, and tastes later: Break the piece of pure chocolate in two parts and rub the parts against each other. Smell the delicious scents that are released, and let the chocolate melt in the mouth immediately afterwards. Never chew a fine chocolate piece. Let it melt in your mouth instead, and enjoy!

Bread Baking & Chocolate Creations is a really enjoyable team building activity suitable for small to medium groups.
