  1. hi Sujit,
    can you describe the oven you use and the brand of flour + yeast you use ? I’m frustrated from the inability of my bread to brown or to have a good crumb.

    When we used a significant amount of gluten to Maida – to make it a reasonable bread flour – there was this metallic taste that I didnt like.

    1. Hi Sandy,

      I use regular maida and atta that’s freely available. I tried the organic maida but I experiment a lot and hence need cheap ingredients. I buy my unbranded flour from a flour mill close by. I’ve tried adding gluten to maida and haven’t been too happy either. I got myself Bob’s Redmill Vital Heat Gluten – bloody expensive. Not worth it. If you’re getting a metallic after taste, chances are some chemical is being used. On the yeast front, I use Gloripan instant yeast and I also keep alive 2 wild yeast cultures for sourdough bread. I use a regular Prestige Oven but of late I’ve started using a Dutch Oven while baking. That’s a cast iron pot that acts like an oven inside the oven trapping moisture that helps the bread rise more.

      Let me know if you need more info.

  2. Hi Sujit
    Do you have the dates as yet for your next classes on baking Sour Dough bread in July and Aug?
    Thanks
    Amrita

        1. Hello Sumit,
          Heard about your class from a friend, was wondering if you have a seat available for the 14th August class??
          And could you also tell me what me the time and duration of the class please??
          Thanks
          Regards,

          Nupura.

    1. Sure Amrita. The earlier the better as most seats are pre-booked 6 weeks in advance. Not more than 5 participants. so demand outstripping supply. 🙂

  3. Reach out whenever you’re ready. As regarding the klutz part – we’ll see that when you come over. 🙂

  4. Hi Sujit,

    When is your next baking workshop. I’m likely to be in Goa around the 26th of August 2016 and I’d absolutely love to attend!

    Thanks in advance,
    Niyati

    1. Hi Niyati,

      Sudha has her Easy Peasy Coastal Delights from Kerala Masterclass on 26th June. My next Artisan Sourdough Bread Workshop is on 3rd July followed by 17th July.

    2. Hi when is your next baking class please? i live in goa, and am really interested…thanks 🙂

  5. Oh! 🙁

    I’m in Delhi (by way of Bombay) and am going home to Bombay for a few weeks in August. May I request to be put on your waiting/announcement list? Or shall I check back with you when I’m coming to Goa after that?

    Many thanks!
    Niyati

    1. Hey Niyati,

      Sudha’s Kerala Specials is on 6th August. My Sourdough workshop on the 7th is sold out. The next one is happening on 14th August. All in Goa. Possible?

  6. Hi Sujit,

    Unfortunately, I’ve had some emergencies in the family and won’t be able to make it in August. I’ll keep an eye out on your blog for upcoming classes.

    Thanks very much for thinking of me.

    All best,
    Niyati

  7. Hi Sujit,

    Great to see good bread blogs in India! I’m based in Bangalore and I tried my hand at 100% atta breads with some gluten thrown in but the breads are too dense and don’t rise much. Will try your recipes.

    What is your baking set-up in terms of oven etc? Do you use an OTC electric oven? Which would you recommend.

    1. Hi Sammy,

      Thanks. I use a Morphy Richards 28 litre electric OTG and I hear disaster stories from everyone who has these contraptions. I’m afraid I have no recommendations.Stay well. Ta.

  8. Hi Sumitran,
    I am an absolute amateur (to be read as – know zilch) when it comes to breadmaking. I am a huge foodie and spent quite a few weeks in Italy and fell in love with pizzas and wine. I am currently pursuing my level 3 certification in wines. I am in a regular corporate job, but at some point in time (hopefully), I want to open my own ”lil not so fancy cafe” to only serve good earthy real flavorful pizzas – Not so much a commercial venture as much as to share my love for pizzas and put a smile on people’s faces. I am keen on leaning basics of breadmaking and light fluffy bases for pizzas (preferably Neapolitan). I came across your posts on FB and found them very interesting. I am based out of Bangalore – Would you be able to share you workshop dates for October and November please. Many thanks

  9. Hi !
    Wanted to know if you have any workshop happening between Nov 1 – Nov 4. I am absolutely an amateur but have keen interest in bread making.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks

    1. Hi Shruti,

      Apologies for the delayed response. I’ve been travelling right through October and I inadvertently missed your mail. I have a workshop scheduled for the 6th and that’s sold out – but I can accommodate 1 person, if you’re around. I only conduct workshops on Sunday’s as most of the participants are from outside Goa and it’s easier for most folks to do this on a weekend.

  10. Hi Sujit,

    Just to jog your memory I was the English guy at you demo on how to bake real bread ( sour dough ) at the Inox complex in Panjim the guy who eat all your samples. Well I am back in UK and I am raring to get started with the help of your recipes and blog to bake real bread. I have just purchase a Dutch oven esstential bit of kit as you explained lucky for me the January sales had just started when we arrive home so was lucky to get one for £20 soild cast iron. First I have to cook some of the recipes I brought back this time using the many spices we bought. I now have greater understanding of the many spices used in indian meals, Just like making bread I sorted proffessional advice from indian chef ( nepal also) Will get back to you when I have baked my first loaf

    Cheers Graham

    1. Hi Graham,

      Am really happy for you and your wife and I’m certainly looking forward to hearing from you. Best for 2017. Cheers – Sujit

    1. Hi Jacob,

      I just saw your message on the website and I’m afraid today is not on.

      I do 2 workshops per month and I’m done with my quota for January. My daughter is getting married next month so the next workshop will be only in March 2017.

      Hope to see you some day at the workshop.

  11. Hi Sujit! Just went through all of your comments and understood you take workshops on Sundays only. I also figured you are busy with preps for your daughters wedding and you are likely to get free for workshops in the month of March. A friend and I are visiting Goa from 3-6th March. Any chance you conducting a workshop then?
    Best,
    Sargam

  12. Dear Sujit,

    Greetings from Bhopal,

    I got hear about you from a friend. Have been absolutely mesmerised by the beautiful photos of bread on your facebook and instagram pages. My name is Zafar Rashid and I really want to learn how to make lovely fresh bread using all natural ingredients. I am more than willing to come Goa to learn from you. I would be grateful if you let me know how this can be made possible. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Best Regards Zafar
