bulk bakers flour
Does anyone have a supplier for bakers' flour in bulk amounts for sale to the public for making home made bread? Is there anywhere online you can order it and have it delivered? I'd like to know the shop where sells bulk bakers flour in Sydney.

Do you share Christmas Hampers amongst your staff for Christmas?  Or do you share vouchers or Kris Kringle?

Making sushi
I want to learn to make sushi… I crave it quite regularly and I’m tired of spending a fortune on buying it. It looks really hard – is it as difficult as it looks? I’m not very good at cooking rice, I usually either under or over-cook it. If you know how, I’d love some pointers. Cheers!

    Hi there I also love sushi and after about three sessions of trying to make it and everytime it being a disaster I decided to look to see if there was any workshops or courses on it. Lo and behold I found this one. Sushi Making Course on This is in NSW and am not sure where you are so maybe Google it but here is basically what I learned... It's all about the best quality ingredients. I was using seaweed sheets that had been open in my cupboard for months. That doesn't cut it, you have to invest in good quality sushi rice, mirin and seaweed and ensure they are all fresh. Rice is best when cooked in a rice cooker (the best thing in my kitchen)but the most important thing is wait for it to cool down before seasoning it. And not be impatient. The rest unfortunatly is rolling technique and it is so much better when you learn from a pro. Hope that helps a bit.

    its not too hard - you just need a sushi making kit, which these days you can even buy in Coles! The secret is in cooling the rice and using the right kind. Buy the sushi rice in the supermarket and follow the instructions to cook. When it is cooked, put it in a large bowl, add the vinegar and sugar and beat it really quickly to cool it down. The Japanese often do this in front of a fan or something similar. It makes it nice and sticky. When making the sushi, make sure you put the seaweed the right side dwon (see packt) and keep a bowl of warm water nearby. Keep your hands damps to stop it sticking too much. Rolling the sushi can be a bit tricky but you will get it - just do a few practice runs and you will work out how tight you need to pack it and where to place the rice and how much. The first few times I did I packed way to much in, but you get it. Another thing you can do is make onagiri - rice balls! Just take your favourite filling, cover it in rice and shape it into a ball. Roll this in bonito or seaweed flakes, or even your favourite dukkah! Yummo, without all the hassle of sushi. You can buy bonito (fish flakes) at specialty Asian food stores as well as Woolies and COles (in the Asian food aisle) Hope that helps ....

    Two places you can buy flour online are ... The only thing is not to buy too much in advance unless you are planning to bake big quantities otherwise you will be providing a haven for those little weavels.

Spanish or Portugese food?
Can anyone tell me where I can get a really good Spanish meal? I love Tappas and sardines etc…

  • Ap_business_card_small
    Hi kohorn Try Legends Restaurant in Manuka. I've eaten there a few times and the food has always been pretty good. Don't know about the sardines (they're not my favourite) but the tappas is good.
