Panasonic Bread Making Workshop

My little girl and I joined the Panasonic Bread Making workshop at the Cooking House . She was excited about it as she loved trying her hands out on cooking and baking.

All ready to start

The Cooking House senior chef consultant Collin Edward Lim led us through a fun-filled bread-making session where we learned how to make bread the easy way with the awesome Panasonic Bread Maker SD-P104 

ThSimple and Easy 5-step Operations :-

1. Take out the bread pan and set the kneading blade.

2. Add high-gluten flour and other ingredients except dry 

yeast in the bread pan.

3. Put instant dry yeast, dried fruits & nuts in the dispensers.

4. Select menu and press start

5. After beep sound, take out the bread

    The crust pad lets you select the crust colour light and medium.

    If there is a power failure during your bread making, the machine will retain its memory for up to 10 minutes and continue when the power supply returns.

    3 dough cycles - bread dough, pizza dough and dumpling skin
    2 snack cycle - chocolate and cake

Ok, back to our experience, Chef Collin showed us how to make two different dough, one the healthy whole meal one and the other a normal dough and then set us on our challenge for the day. To  design and make our bread from the dough given and also create some bread designing art on two -three slices of white bread. We were all quite excited by the prospect  especially when told that there were 5 of those awesome Panasonic Bread Makers to be won.

We went on to the next kitchen where we were given a bit of bread dough and could get our selection of garnishing from the main table top. There were just so many things to choose from from walnuts, hazel nuts, almonds, chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, bananas, dates, jam, nutella, honey, etc...etc..etc...

We were given only 75 minutes plus baking time to do those two tasks.. Horrors.. We started rushing to create our designs the best we can. My little princess helped rolled the dough and applied sunflower seeds on my 'cat' , supposing to be the fur. However once baked, some parts did not quite turn out as we hoped. The raisins collar on my cat fell off, the legs were more stubbier then I hoped for and even the chocolate chip nose fell out.

Fortunately we were allowed to touch up on our designs.
