  2. to guess the amount of flour you need to know how much of each type of bread was baked. in addition - different types of flour weigh differently in volume - due to density and grind of the grain.

    sorry i had to bring this into the scenario - but I bake from scratch and this made me instantly think about how to measure for each of those bread types. some takes white, some takes dark, some takes light wheat, some takes cereal, there is even corn and potato in there as stabilizers. that's what flour is in the recipe.

    all different in volume and therefore weight in total.

    I for one will be totally waiting to see how you figure out the volume and weight on this one. not all flour weighs the same by pound; as I know you know.
    so does your chef. hehe-he,

  7. Wow! So many types of bread. A good piece of food art!

  8. That is some artistic feat !

    Many moons ago, another artistic couple (was it Christo n Jeanne Claude ?) wanted to sink 40,000 breads in a dutch lake ! U can expect a storm of protest bec that is their staple food, in a country where frugality is a virtue !

    What will Chef Tan do when the show is over ? Only thing I can think of is making plenty of bread crumbs n sell it for charity. How does that sound eh ?

  9. Weird, but funny bread car.
    I guess it takes a rich creativity to come up with an idea like this for all men's dream; the Formula 1.
    Then, I guess, in Asia anything is possible!
    Good photo report.
