Just think of the you-teows are gaint bread sticks and the harm-chin-pengs as mini boules.
The you-teows are nice and crunchy with little crumb in the centre. The harm-chin-pengs are so airy inside that they look like the ugly cousins of the beautiful and quaint-looking Puff Ball pictured in the book Dough.
The taste of bread made with a pre-ferment is amazing. I have never made pre-ferment before and so I was quite blown away with the rich flavour of the bread. I just love this book so much that I knew that I had to order it, which I did. Thanks to this book, I have regained a little confidence in bread making and I can't wait to try out other items on the book.
