Vietnamese Style Baguette

I'm interested in trying to make a Vietnamese style baguette for banh mi sandwiches and was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with them. From the limited information I could find on the Internet the basic difference between the Vietnamese style and the traditional French style is the substitution of a portion of your regular flour with rice flour, i've heard anywhere from quarter to a half. This is supposed to produce an airier crumb and a crispier crust. As far as I can tell, the cooking method is the same after that.

Will substituting some rice flour for the regular flour do this?

Will I need to alter the prep or cooking method?

Thanks,

Dave

I think it should be fine. The only thing I would look out for is the absorption rate of rice flour. You don't want it to be too slack or too dry. Also ive started onbaguettes recently. GET HOTEL PANS. I tried without them what a pain in the ass. Report your findings!

Try the formulation of 60% AP Flour, 40% Rice Flour and a 60% hydration rate calculated on the total weight of the rice flour and AP flour combined. An example recipe would look like this:
 

  • 600g AP Flour
  • 400g Rice Flour
  • 600g Water
  • 7g Yeast
  • 20g Salt

Follow the method shown in this video and you should be on your way. It's been awhile since I've played with this form of baguette but this should get you close. I'm planning on doing some more R&D on these this fall when my schedule frees up slightly.
 
Let me know how it turns out.

so just wanted to post this Puttanesca sauce. 

Man it is such a great dish. Lovely change of pace from the common sweet sauce. 

 Doesn't look like much But it makes the house smell like the sea and it sure is good.

I'm currently listening to your newest - SCS 032. In my podcast app (Doggcatcher), I have your feed set to keep all episodes. And I just noticed that I had only 31 episodes.

So I checked the episode listings on the website to try to find the missing episode and saw that their is apparently no episode 030!

While that resolved the discrepency between the numbering of the episodes and the number of episodes I have saved, it made me curious:

What happened to episode 030?

Hello one and all, 

 

I have just finished watching the pan seared salmon video on YouTube - thank you Chef Jacob and read the associated show notes.      

I was wondering if you served salmon as a main - what sort of sides and/or  vegetables could I serve it with?  Thank you for your time.   

I see that you used seseme seeds and some herbs that I am unfamiliar with.     

Just thinking about my vegetarian friend who only eats fish, chicken and turkey.  I thought salmon might be a good thing to serve.   

 

Thanking you :-)

So my question is this

 

I have friends who are coming for dinner - and I usually do dumplings with pork mince, however she does not eat pork.  I posted this picture on facebook earlier today, and she asked for the recipe which is :

I have friends coming for dinner in a couple of weeks, and the lady eats vegetarian dishes mainly but she also enjoys chicken and fish dishes.   

Her husband - eats anything and everything.  

What is your favourite chicken or fish dish - something that presents well on the plate.   

It is the end of summer in NZ - so - if you could think about that in your reply.   I would be interested in trying something new.  

She is an accomplished cook - and usually serves many little dishes when they host.   I would be very interested in hearing from you.
